2018 Kasilof River Fishing Report:

Although river conditions in May can be highly variable, count on low to extremely low water levels in the Kasilof River. If we’ve had an unusually warm spring, water levels may rise closer to normal. Lake ice begins to recede and is pretty much gone by Memorial Day weekend, except on higher-elevation lakes

Most Kasilof River shore anglers head for the Alaska State Parks’ Crooked Creek State Recreation Site, off Cohoe Loop Road. Many also fish from the Kasilof River State Recreation Site just upstream from the Sterling Highway bridge.

The run to the Kasilof also peaks in early June. Beginning May 16, bait and treble/multiple hooks may be used in the Kasilof (downstream of the Sterling Hwy. Bridge only). Before May 16, only single hooks and no bait are allowed. Popular lures include Spin-N-GlosTM, PixeesTM, VibraxTM, Okie DriftersTM, and yarn flies. Lures are often sweetened with a chunk of preserved salmon roe Average size of Kasilof early run kings is about 15-25 pounds. 20-lb. monofilament is the minimum recommended.
