A great flexible Trip
featuring Fly Fishing, Spin or both
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.
This trip features our Renowned riverside main lodge on the World Famous Kenai River. All trips are double occupancy, with single rooms sometimes available for an additional fee. Evening activities include Moose River Kayaking or Paddle boarding, "by the fire" salmon fly fishing and sometimes, some campfire salmon with s'mores.
Afternoon 1/2 day Salmon or trout 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 drifting egg or flesh patterns for the huge trophy Trout of the Kenai. You may also choose to board one of our boats for a guided afternoon Salmon trip targeting King or Silver Salmon on the Kenai or Kasilof River.
Trophy Trout fishing
Trophy Trout in the Wildlife Refuge is everything you’ve dreamed it could be - clear mountain water, beautiful drifts, 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.
Peninsula Wade Fishing
A day of wade fishing for native Rainbow Trout and Char on one of the many local options. Bead casting to Dolly Varden on one of our favorite streams, or swinging flies to big Chinook. During the late season, you may target salt fresh Steelhead or Silver Salmon..in the early season perhaps gorgeous Kings within stones throw of the ocean... 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
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.
Guided Salmon Fishing
Wade fishing 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.)
