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.

    •   Really, how deep?  Head scratch?    Oh, I think I'm smelling river.

    • that worked today    friend was throwing jerk bait and 4 nice eyes slammed it. funny!   
    • Cooler than normal temperatures, clouds and rain dominated the last week and slowed down the spring progression, including bird migrations and fish spawning. However, a warm-up in the next couple of weeks could change that quickly.River systems across the entire state are running very high, and while the Memorial Day weekend has traditionally been a popular paddling weekend, recreational safety specialists are cautioning that only experienced and properly outfitted paddlers should be on rivers when they are running this high. The Lower Wisconsin River set a flow rate record this week of 42,000 cubic feet per second at Muscoda and there are no sandbars available for camping. The river is running fast and deep, with some boat launches under water.Fewer anglers were out this week due to the rain and cooler weather and those that were reported mixed success. Along Green Bay one hot spot has been out of the mouth of the Pensaukee River where anglers have been catching limits of walleye. White bass anglers had a great deal of success, with some harvesting more than 20 fish from a few hours of fishing. .
    • I believe they use the same blades so I wouldn't expect much of a difference.   
    • So what is the difference between the Lazer Synthetic and just a plain ole Lazer hand auger when it comes to cutting ice with a hand drill?  Lazer Synthetic is lighter but does it cut any better?

    • My family is going to be headed to Birch Lake near Babbitt, MN in late June for a week on a houseboat.  This trip is a graduation present for our oldest and I am hoping to make it a week to remember.   I would appreciate any advice ranging from fishing locations, bait, suggested lures, and even sites to see on the lake.  I have done a lot of searching on Google with the hope of finding someone who maybe spent a week on a houseboat on Birch but not a lot of luck.  I have about a month to prepare for the trip so I greatly appreciate everyone input.   Thanks,  
    •     I have had good luck with the "My Plate" app.... It is annoying enough to keep you honest, but simple enough to use.
    •   Yeah well once you fire that bad boy up and show her how it works, she will get impressed pretty quick!
