Fishing

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.
