Anchorage Fishing trips

Great Alaska Adventure Lodge has been guiding anglers from Anchorage to our waters for great, single - day Anchorage fishing experiences for nearly 30 years.  Our combined 100+ years of local knowledge on the Kenai River and our  commitment to your successful trip are your assurance of a very special Alaska Sport fishing experience. If you have a single day in Anchorage and want to experience the mighty Kenai (without the hassle of a rental car, getting your fishing license and the other logistics, let us make it easy!     Price for this package is 395.00 per person plus 3% tax.  Lunch and license is included.

Regulation note:  To protect the largest King salmon on the planet, The Kenai River (like all Alaskan rivers) does experience occasional closures or restrictions.  Great Alaska Adventures supports catch and release for King Salmon, and we may focus on Sockeye salmon or Rainbow Trout on those times when the King fishing has been restricted.  Please be aware that our famous One Day Fishing from Anchorage is a "guides Choice" trip, and we'll focus on whatever species allows us to provide our the best chance for success.   
These trips are designed to be perfect fit for those on an independent itinerary throughout Alaska who want to a dd a day of world class guided Kenai River fishing to their itinerary- or a cruise passenger who has a "free" day in Anchorage and wants to experience the real Alaska.  If you'd like to see how easy it is to set up a trip like this, please call or email our office to speak with one of our full-time guides to help tailor the exact trip and time that is right for you.
