Early Run Kenai King Salmon
1st run Kenai Kings enter the river in June and taper off towards July. Charters can accommodate 4-5 people per boat. Regulation limit: catch and release only. Trust us, this is a great choice for your fishing day in Alaska!
1st run peaks in mid June and 2nd run peaks mid July through late August. Charters can accommodate 4 passengers in July and 4-5 passengers any other time. Regulation limits: 3-6 fish per angler depending on run size.
King Salmon / Sockeye Combo
Enjoy a day targeting both species. We typically spend half the day targeting Sockeye to keep, and then spend the rest of the day targeting large King Salmon. This is a great way to get a search for a variety of fish during your trip in Alaska!
Ocean Halibut / Rockfish / Salmon
Spend the day with one of our trusted ocean captains targeting some of the largest and best eating fish in Alaska. Charters can accommodate 6-12 anglers depending on the boat.

Kenai River Fishing Spots
The Lower Kenai River is perfect for drift boat fishermen. With its abundant food sources, it attracts rainbow trout and Dolly Varden—fish that can grow to record size. So if you’re looking for big fish, this is the spot to go.
The Middle Kenai River is a must-fish section of the river. It’s stocked with tons of rainbow trout and steelhead, as well as plenty of salmon. The Middle Kenai River can provide a new, different fishing section for anglers of all ages to explore!
The Kasilof River isn’t for the faint of heart. In fact, it’s one of the most challenging rivers in Alaska. It’s classified as Class II whitewater, and the swift currents can be extremely dangerous. However, if you’re up for an adventure, it’s a great place to go.
