King Salmon Trophy Fishing Program

Release A Hog, And Take Home An Alaska Fishing Trophy

Lorena Ochoa, former world #1 ranked women's golfer,
holds one of the Fishing Trophies.

In a program designed to encourage the release of the giant king salmon the Kenai is famous for, the Kenai River Sportfishing Association (KRSA) will award a fiberglass trophy mount to anglers who land and release fish measuring 50 inches or more. The Kenai River king salmon are world-famous for their size and fighting ability, with 80 and 90 pounders reported each season. Even so, numbers of these gigantic fish have decreased over the past ten years. That decline has concerned the public. Under this new program, anglers can experience the thrill of catching a lunker Kenai King, let that trophy go to spawn and still hang their bragging rights on the wall.

The Kenai River is known as the only place in the world that anglers can grab their gear, jump in a boat and have a chance of catching the next world record. This new KRSA program will help sustain that reputation by putting more big fish on the spawning beds to the benefit of their future generations as well as ours.
