In that timeframe, I'd honestly pass on trying to catch a king from the bank on your own in either stream. The bank fishery that is popular on the Kasilof in May / June is long gone by that timeframe and the Kenai is normally a pretty tough show, even for those in the know. I'd concentrate more on the reds ... you'll have far better success on your own and they are a hoot to catch, even though it may not be the most sporting way to fish.

A swivel / lead cinch and about four feet of leader to a "sockeye fly" (a 2/0 gami with a spaghetti craft bead in front is mine ;) ) is all you need. One of your smaller levelwinds with the 17 lb should suffice ... perhaps a tad heavier if you plan on fishing the busier areas (usally all public access areas are in that timeframe).

Copy the one who you see catching the most fish ... in flossing or lining fish, it's all in the technique and not in what you are using! Have fun!
