The Kenai River, home of the World Record 97lb 4oz King Salmon, caught May 17, 1985, by local Alaskan Les Anderson, continues to deliver “world class” fighting King Salmon. No other river on earth produces the numbers of native King Salmon averaging 30 to 60 pounds, and only the Kenai River gives anglers the opportunity to land a trophy of 70 to 90 pounds.
The Kenai River provides 2 distinct runs of King Salmon. The “early run” King Salmon generally begin entering the river around May 10 and continue through the end of June. The “late run” starts July 1 and runs until July 31.
With over 38 years experience fishing the Kenai River, Rod N Real fishing guides can put you on the fish, with the right baits and lures to match the changing water conditions throughout the season.
You will be fishing out of our custom built 20’ Fish Rite and 20’ Willie River Boats, with a maximum of 4 anglers with a guide. Each guest will be equipped with an 8 ½ to 10 ft G Loomis or Lamiglas graphite rod, with the finest level wind reels, filled with fresh state-of-the-art braided line. Rod N Real fishing guides are highly trained in the best fishing techniques available for King Salmon. All tackle, baits, and fishing instruction is provided by your guide.
Our standard 5 ½ hour charter is included in our lodging/fishing packages, or you have the option of upgrading to our popular 9 hour full-day charter.
Kasilof River King Salmon Fishing!
Just 10 miles south of the Kenai River, the Kasilof River, which flows out of Tustemena Lake, offers additional opportunity for red-hot King Salmon action. Kasilof Kings generally enter the river around May 20th and continue in excellent numbers through the 1st week of July.
Fishing out of 20’ McKenzie style drift boats, which accommodate up to 4 anglers with a guide, you will experience some of Alaska’s finest King Salmon fishing. Although these salmon are smaller than their Kenai cousins, they provide you with fast action in the shallow waters of the glacial fed Kasilof River. This is one trip you won’t want to miss!
Cook Inlet Saltwater King Salmon Fishing!
King Salmon by the thousands pour into the Lower Cook Inlet beginning the 1st week of May and continuing through the 1st week of June.
Launching our 30ft hard top fishing vessels off the Deep Creek beach at Ninilchik, we target these King Salmon just minutes south of the launch, in shallow waters just several yards off the beach. We use mooching and slow-trolling techniques with cut-plug herring on light tackle, all included with your charter. King Salmon fishing typically peaks around the high-tide, our signal to put away the King Salmon gear and head out to the deeper waters to finish off the day’s fishing with some hot Halibut action.
For the angler who wants a shot at both Saltwater King Salmon and Halibut on the same day, this is the best time of the season to head to Alaska for your fishing vacation.
