kenai fishing


The City of Kenai is the home of many commercial fish processing and cannery operations at the mouth of the Kenai River as well as home to world-class sport fishing opportunities, as evidenced by the world record King Salmon being caught in the Kenai River. In addition to commercial and sport fishing opportunities, the City hosts a personal-use fishery where, each July, Alaska residents harvest approximately 400,000 sockeye salmon. The City of Kenai occupies a unique position in that four distinctly different fisheries take place within the City’s boundaries: commercial, sport, personal-use, and educational fisheries. The City works diligently with other agencies to support sustainable economic development and a spectacular natural wonder.
