Kings

The Kenai River is famous for its special strain of genetically unique Chinook salmon, Kings that stay at ocean for five years and return as seven year old fish.  Obviously, these older age class salmon are bigger then those of other rivers that return as three and four year olds.  Over the last twenty seasons, my guests have landed a fair amount of these giants, kings of 75, 76, 77, 79 and even two pushing the scale to the mid-eighties.  But this year, for whatever reason, my personal boat hasn’t broke fifty! (My other guides have caught a few jumbos, adding to my frustration!)  Now don’t get me wrong – there is nothing wrong with the 34, 37, 42 or 46 pounders that we have landed in the last few weeks – those are certainly nice chinook in anyones book (what am I, Dr. Suess?)…but oh, how I long for a HOG!!  Maybe this Tuesday…….
