Alaska Pink Salmon
Every even year, the Kenai River and the Kasilof River have a run of
pink Salmon. These aggressive fish, also known as "humpies" because of
the large hump males develop along their backs, number in the millions on the
Kenai River. There are days where the Kenai River literally "boils" with
pink Salmon. You can see hundreds of them jumping out of the water at
the same time.
Humpies do not discriminate. Even the most jaded angler will have
absolutely no problem catching these fish. It is not uncommon for
anglers' arms to become completely fatigued and sometimes develop carpal
tunnel syndrome type symptoms from fighting so many of these fish in one
day. This is definitely one case where it truly is "catching" and there is no
fear of only "fishing".
Humpies are caught using much the same methods as for silver salmon
and King salmon.
