Kenai River Fishing

The Kenai River is best known for holding the world record king salmon.  It also boasts great numbers of sockeye, coho, and pink salmon.  We use a motorized boat to access the Kenai River.

Kasilof River Fishing

The Kasilof River also holds great salmon fishing and is often less crowded than the Kenai.  It is a non-motorized river accessed by drift boat only.



We receive anglers of all experience and age levels each season.  Whether you're a professional fisherman or have never fished before, we can accommodate your needs.  Even if you don't like fishing, most people enjoy the scenery and wildlife often seen on these trips. 

Other local attractions include:  clam digging, hiking, sight seeing, bear viewing, fly outs, glacier tours, birding, and rafting trips.
