Salmon, Trout, Halibut & 1 or 2 Fly outs
Add a day with the bears if you choose
This is the package for the alaskan angler who wants it all. All day, every day Alaska Fishing for every species we target (depending upon season) with both boat and wade fishing included, plus 1 or 2 big days of Fly out fishing. You'll target a variety of species, or hit your favorite many times....it's your call with this great trip. Your riverfront cabin with private bath and fireplace is only steps away from the Kenai's best "beat", so you can literally fish as long as the sun shines. Nightly happy hour and great meals make your time off the river nearly as memorable as the fishing. Perfect for both spin and fly anglers alike.
Salmon, Trout and Halibut fishing
1 or two days of flyout fishing on the 5 and 7 day trips
Van pickup day one, return by floatplane
All inclusive, nightly happy hour, river front cabins
Our renowned Kenai RIver Main Lodge features incredible Kenai River and Mountain views, world class hospitality and service and our "nearly world famous" nightly happy hour.

Afternoon Salmon fishing
We'll pick you up in Anchorage at 7:45 AM for the beautiful trip to Great Alaska and our Kenai River Fishing Lodge. After orientation, you'll enjoy a lunch, get situated in your cabin, and then hit the water with one of our expert guides fishing the world famous Kenai or Kasilof rivers. Kenai Kings (catch and release) or Kasilof Kings, Silver, Sockeye or Pink salmon may be your target, depending upon the time of your trip.
Trophy Trout fishing
Trophy Trout on the Kenai River is everything you’ve dreamed it could be - aquamarine water, beautiful drifts, snow capped mountain views and great fishing. Two to four anglers per boat will drift and wade the Upper Kenai River in search of Char, Silvers, Sockeye and especially Rainbow Trout. These days have the potential to be the best fishing days of your life. Return to the lodge for happy hour, dinner and overnight.
Today you'll enjoy another river fishing excursion, (perhaps to tangle with that epic 36 inch bow or Angry 17 pound silver) ..it depends upon the season and your preference. You may be wade fishing for native Rainbow Trout and Char on one of the many local streams. Bead casting to Dolly Varden on one of our favorite streams, or swinging flies to big Kings if that is more to your style. During the late season, you may target salt fresh Steelhead or Silver Salmon. The options are what makes every trip unique. Return to lodge for Happy hour, dinner and evening casting if you choose.
Alaskan Fly Out Fishing
Your first day of fly-out fishing adds another dimension to the Alaska experience and often can provide a special angling experience. We will choose hot spots for the peak of a Salmon run on each day’s adventure. Typically fly-outs allow for a little extra morning sleep prior to departure and get you back in time for happy hour. Six day trips will feature 1 day of fly out fishing on day 4, and 8 day trips fly out days 4 and 6. A truly amazing experience that makes the Premier well.....the Premier!
Guided Salmon Fishing
Another day of Kenai river Salmon fishing, or opt to Wade fish in one of our favorite local streams - Fly fish for Arctic Grayling in a mountain lake, sight fish for large Rainbows in clear waters, or perhaps drift for Silvers, or Steelhead, in a tidal stream. (Species targeted depend upon seasonal availability.)
