What's the forcast for the Red Run?

7 posts in this topic

Headed up to the Kenia in early August. What is the forcast for the Red run. What is the limit this year? Plan on doing two days ol on the Middle. Last year it was awsome. Never been on the Kenia when the Pinks were running. How does the Pink run effect the Silvers and Reds?

Down Deep I have been in MN this summer so i am not sure what the forecast is. But you could check it out on ADF&G's HSOforum and i am sure you will find something.

The first run of Reds hit the Kenai with full force yesterday with high numbers, it's looking like a very good year to be chasing some sockeye. I think the limit for reds on the kenai is 3/day and 3 in possession, not 100% sure on that though. The pink run shouldn't effect the silver/red run at all, the only thing it will do is make it harder to catch the silvers and reds but there's nothing wrong with a little diversity.

    • GOP just postponed vote. They got nothin'.

    • See what I mean, he is winning an imaginary game with himself and we are all the losers.  It's actually very hilarious, maybe I will play a few rounds. D2E can win again and again and we can all laugh when be boasts about his wicked awesome super trolling.



       

    • All very true same here, I just don't like what I see out east but I guess the same could be said for every other country in the world. Still though, we are responsible and if we want change bad enough we need to take some action.
    • Yeah I know it always adds up.  I have done some construction work and a bit of home wiring and plumbing so I can usually come pretty close to price.  The parts that always kill me are when I need to go back to the store for a 30 cent bolt or something really small that just kills ya to make the trip ha!
    • 7 year of beeotching and the GOP finally has the chance to prove they can both lead the country and come up with a better plan than Obamacare and they failed at every level.   Great job.
    • We know. Halfwit us waaaaay too advanced for you to process. Just do the best you can and we will try to slow things down a bit for you.
    • I am looking at purchasing a newer house and my boat is in storage and I cannot get it out right now. How short of a garage can I go and still get the boat in the garage with an angle? I would love to buy a house with a bigger garage but that is not in the budget right now, and the boat always stays indoors.
    • Yo-Zuri Hybrid.   It's technically a co-polymer line, but it's a terrific, tough, low-stretch substitute for monofilament. It's also very affordable.   The thing you want to consider with Hybrid is that its actually breaking strength is about 1.5x the listed strength. For example, the 12# breaks at about 20 pounds of pull.   The most useful line for a spinning rig would be 4-6#, with 6# being very useful.   For baitcasting setups, try the 10-12# lines. 12# is on most of my rods with moving baits.   Give this stuff a shot. It may very well become your new favorite line.
