Although summer seems to be the most popular season for fishing, fall in Alaska presents an assortment of perks to eager anglers. Besides a few peak runs for some species in July and August, autumn is still one of the best times to target salmon and trout on the Kenai River. Moreover, halibut fishing on the Cook Inlet can be productive through September and sometimes into October.
