The Kenai River in Alaska has one of the best salmon runs in the world! It starts in mid-June and runs until the end of October. Besides salmon it has world class fishing for rainbow trout, char and grayling. You can drift the river in one of our decked out drift boats and fish spots people along the road system can’t get to or you can do one of our ½ day or full day hikes that are both fishing/wildlife viewing trips and see another side of Alaska. Wildlife in our area is quite abundant with both black and grizzly bears spotted along the river weekly if not daily. Other species such as moose, bald eagles, lynx, coyotes, and wolves can be seen as well. Besides the Kenai River we fish Quartz Creek, the Kasilof River, and several high mountain lakes in the area. Our guides help create a vacation you will not forget.
We offer full day and half day trips with flexibility on the time we depart from the launch. Our boats can accommodate 4 anglers with private trip rates for boats with only 1 or 2. All Upper River trips start at the Alpine Inn Motel. Most people choose to stay here the night before. Time of departure will be discussed with the clients the night before.
The guides will put you in the best locations and are on the river almost every day. One reason we like to connect with the clients the night before every trip is to advise and talk about any changes in location. We will take you to where the fish are! We specialize in the Upper Kenai River but that doesn’t mean we won’t drop all the way down to the Kasilof River if we feel you are going to have a better chance to create a trip of a lifetime.
