The salmon fishing season is full tilt here on the Cook Inlet. We’re currently bringing in beautiful wild sockeye, also known as “red” salmon and the fish counts are looking good. KRFC’s family-owned processing plant in Ninilchik is in full production mode with our skillful crew, comprised of local Alaskans and Portlandians, putting in long days producing flash frozen portions for our customers.

Clint, Allison and Mike are posted up in Alaska and we’re missing Rachael who had a chance to visit a couple weeks ago. It’s been amazing to work with our local setnet fishermen. We are grateful for partnering with Dean, Nate, Matt, Monica, Tim, Benjamin, Steve, and Joann. When we say “know your fishermen” we really mean it.

And just this week we activated our new dock on the Kasilof river which allows us to bring salmon from gillnet drift boats in addition to what we receive from our setnet fishermen.

Our friends Brian and Heidi Samore from Portland were here last week; Brian served as our videographer during their visit. They were so fun to have around and Brian did an amazing job capturing the spirit of our team and dedicated people that help bring our salmon to your table. This week photographer Jan Sonnenmair (@antjan on instagram), also from Portland, is tagging along and shooting stills of our day to day adventures up in Alaska. Her experience and eye for the perfect shot was something special to see. The images above are just a snippet of what she captured this week. We cannot wait to share the rest!
