We have been offering our now famous Anchorage Fishing Trips (with transfers) for nearly thirty years, and over 4000 guests have chosen Great Alaska Adventure Lodge to add a day of fishing on the famous Kenai River to their inside passage Cruise or independent tour of Alaska. Finding fishing trips from Anchorage often mean a 500.00 or 600.00 fly out experience...great for some folks but not the right fit for everyone. Many folks who met us this way have gone on to book extended stays in following years, so if all you have is a day...give us a chance! All guides have completed a Kenai River guide training course, are current in first aid and CPR and operate our custom power and drift boats specifically designed for our home river. Personal attention and service is our priority, along with of course getting you into some great fishing! Here is a link to our one day Fishing Trip from Anchorage.
Species and regulations
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 single day trips are a "catch of the day" scenario...the species you will be targeting will depend upon river conditions and your guides discretion or current regulations/closures). 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.
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. We are support and follow all current regulations regarding limits and techniques. Ask your adventure expert for more information on species and timing of your particular trip.
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.
Seasonal Fishing closures : ONE DAY FISHING IS NOT AVAILABLE ON SUNDAYS OR MONDAYS IN JUNE AND JULY; AND ON MONDAYS IN AUGUST/SEPTEMBER DUE TO SEASONAL FISHING RESTRICTIONS.
