Great Alaska Adventure Lodge
Day Fishing trips from Anchorage
Great Alaska Adventure Lodge has been offering great Day Trips from Anchorage, including world class day fishing trips for Kenai River Salmon for over two decades. In addition, we are now offering scenic Bald Eagle floats through the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. One of these two trips are the perfect extension of your Alaskan Cruise or your independent tour of Alaska. Many of our guests tell us that they wish they had wish they have allotted more for their Great Alaska experience...but over the years many have come back to fish or adventure with us for up to a week, so that works for us!
All of our Alaska Day trips include a pickup at one of three Anchorage locations...2 near the airport and one downtown. The scenic Bald Eagle Float also offers drive in versions. Fishing is also available as charter-only, or all-inclusive with transfers from Anchorage, lunch and license.
Regulation note: The Kenai River is a trophy fishery and at times the fishing may be restricted to catch and release, or even closed completely to protect the run. Great Alaska Adventures supports catch and release and will target other species in that instance.
The trips depart from Anchorage between 7:30 and 8:00 am. Pickups include the downtown Hilton, Holiday Inn Express and Millennium hotels only. You'll transfer to the lodge (135 miles of beautifully scenic highway), followed by lunch at our renowned riverside lodge, then you'll hit the river with one our excellent licensed guides. All guides have completed a Kenai River guide training course, are current in first aid and CPR and operate custom power and drift boats specifically designed for our home river. June and July generally focus on the world famous Kenai King salmon (the word's largest salmon) with August and September featuring feisty Silver Salmon and or Rainbow Trout. (All day trips are a "catch of the day" scenario...the species you will be targeting will depend upon river conditions and your guides discretion). Please check our seasonal chart for the available species during your specific time frame. Please keep in mind that much like our one day bear viewing, each and every day of the season is to itself unique. Our large Kenai River King Salmon, in particular, are a trophy species and not everyone catches their trophy- however the beautiful round trip from Anchorage, along with time spent on this beautiful river make every trip a success. If you have any questions about the type of fishing you will be experiencing, please contact our expert office staff today.
More info about our 1 Day Kenai River Fishing Trip:
Your one day fishing trip from Anchorage will feature 4-5 hours of guided fishing, lunch and a single day fishing license. King Salmon trips will also include a necessary single day King Salmon Stamp. At the end of your day of fishing, you'll return to the lodge and any fish you have chosen to retain will be filetted. Boxes and gel packs are an additional charge, as are overnight shipping to your home. Call our office for additional information regarding seasons, fish preparation and seasonal restrictions. One Day fishing will target whichever species Great Alaska deems most successful based upon weather, run strength and other factors.
