The Kenai Peninsula began to emerge from the Wisconsin glaciation approximately 18,000 years ago. As streams and lakes developed, pioneering fish species such as salmon and trout began to settle into the newly available aquatic real estate. Multiple salmon and trout species may be found in the same river because they occupy different habitats and exhibit different life history strategies. For example, pink salmon spawn in the lower Kenai river and their offspring enter the ocean after hatching, while coho salmon spawn in the upper river with their young spending a few years in fresh water.
