Our Fishing Destinations
The Kenai River is one of the world’s most prestigious waterways and provides Alaska’s most diverse freshwater sportfishing opportunity.
This glacial stream boasts an abundance of Chinook (King), Sockeye (Red), Coho (Silver), and Humpy (Pink) Salmon while offering the largest freshwater sport fisheries for each of these species in Alaska. Salmon anglers are not alone when considering those who prosper from these majestic waters.
The Kenai also provides you the opportunity to land a trophy Rainbow Trout. Spanning 80 miles from the great river’s source (Kenai Lake), to the river’s mouth (Upper Cook Inlet), the Kenai River’s incredible scenery and world class fisheries will ensure that your angling experience is unparalleled.
The Kasilof River is a large glacial system (approximately 20 miles) draining from Tustumena Lake and emptying into Upper Cook Inlet. Less than 15 miles from Alaska’s most fabled salmon river, the Kasilof seems overshadowed but don’t be fooled; this river possesses its own uncoupled notoriety.
Similar to the Kenai River, the Kasilof River offers two distinct runs of King Salmon as well as an impressive run of Silver Salmon and hundreds upon thousands of Sockeye. It also sustains formidable populations of native Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, and Steelhead.
The Kasilof River is a drift boat only fishery (unfishable with a motor). This unique attribute allows anglers to fully experience the serene beauty and splendor of Alaska while hooking into a trophy fish. Consistency is the Kasilof’s forte and many times while the Kenai is slow or under emergency restriction the Kasilof not only provides consolation to its anglers but will prove to be a high point of the trip.
Fly Out Fishing
One of the many benefits of fishing the Kenai Peninsula is the assortment of locations that can easily be accessed by embarking on a fly out trip. With just a short flight in a float plane, anglers can experience fishing some of the most remote, plentiful, and nearly untouched rivers in Alaska.
Fly out fishing trips will optimize your experience with opportunities exceeding those present in road accessible waters. Phenomenal angling success is just a portion of the allure fly out fishing has to offer. The magic is truly realized while breathing in the captivating views and experiencing Alaskan wildlife like never imagined.
Bear Viewing Tours
Bear viewing in Alaska is epic! Get up close and personal with big brown bears with a professional bear guide and watch the bears in their natural habitat. Bear tours begin wth a flight in a small plane across the Cook Inlet to Lake Clark National Park. From there you walk along beaches or sedge grass feeding areas where you will see brown bears feeding on fish or foraging.
Alaska bear viewing is always at the top of our visitors list of the best memories of their time in Alaska. We can make the arrangements for you to take in one of these exciting adventures.
An option aside from freshwater fishing while visiting the Kenai Peninsula is to “fish the salt.” The oceanic waters surrounding the Peninsula are brimming with life. Abundant species include Halibut, Salmon, Yellow Eye, Rockfish, Black Bass and Lingcod.
Whether you choose to fish the waters of Prince William Sound from Whittier, Resurrection Bay in Seward, Anchor Point, Ninilchik, or Kachemak Bay off the Homer Spit; one element that holds true is the spectacular scenery that will envelop you. Volcanoes, waterfalls, sea life such as whales, porpoise, sea otters, sea lions and a variety of sea birds are common spectacles. No matter your experience level, fishing the salt in Alaska will make for lifelong memories.
Several Saltwater Destination Choices
Fishing from Whittier allows anglers to experience world class saltwater fishing in Alaska’s world-famous Prince William Sound. You will marvel at the spectacle of abundant marine wildlife, gorgeous mountains, stunning glaciers, and even whales while amidst some of the best fishing in the world.
Whittier Halibut Fishing Charters
Seward Alaska is located on the southeastern tip of the Kenai Peninsula. Glacier tipped mountain crests rise from the pristine jade waters surrounding Seward and contribute a flawless habitat for whales, sea lions, seals and sea otters to thrive. Experiencing Seward Alaska will allow anglers to encounter this oceanic wonderland. It’s typical to catch half a dozen different species or more just in one day on Resurrection Bay.
The Cook Inlet has been deemed the “Halibut Capital of The World” for obvious reasons. Monster Halibut weighing up to 300+ lbs. are taken from these waters year after year. The advantage of fishing from Anchor Point is that it’s much closer to the same Halibut fishing grounds that you would access from Homer only 10-15 miles closer. Fishing from Anchor Point also offers exemplary King Salmon Fishing. Being only a few miles from the mouth of the Kenai River allows anglers access to both fish heading to the river to spawn “spawners” and “feeders” fish not yet bound for their natal stream.
Fishing out of Homer allows the trip to begin much closer to the target destinations of the Chugiak and Barren Islands. Kachemak Bay’s advantage is that it presents the prospect of landing an assortment of trophy fish including lingcod, yellow eye, halibut, black rockfish, and sea bass. Feeder king salmon are also plentiful in these waters. Humpback whales are a common sight in the months of June through September as well as sea otters, sea birds, porpoises, orcas, and pilot whales. All else aside, Kachemak Bay is teeming with the main attraction, Halibut.
