05 Nov 2013 slipping away!
To my utter amazement, it’s November! Each year time seems to pass by so much faster and this season on the Kenai Peninsula was no exception. With the stroke of an oar we went from cold May mornings on the Kasilof looking for the first kings of 2013 to just recently watching October winds wrestle the few remaining leaves from cottonwood trees along the middle Kenai. Somewhere in between these two perennial events lies an epic season like no other we have ever seen. It helped to have the longest stretch of bluebird skies Alaska has ever witnessed along with huge runs of sockeye and especially silver salmon which arrived in numbers not seen in decades. All this capped off by the added bonus of no freezing weather and no snow headed into November. Indeed 2013 has been a very memorable year but with the season well behind us now it is time to cast ahead to 2014. Lots of great dates are still available throughout the summer but many are beginning to fill. If you are considering a visit to the Kenai next summer now is the time to start making reservations.
As always, we will be publishing a complete recap of the 2013 fishing season in our annual edition of Kenai Current the Newsletter, due out just after the first of the year. If you are not already on our mailing list and would like to receive a copy of the 2013/2014 Kenai Current, please email me your mailing address here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Meanwhile we wish everyone a glorious fall and winter and we look forward to seeing you soon!
