Day Trips

Our day trips include Alaska salmon and trout fishing as well as Kenai River rafting trips. Both popular as a weekend getaway and as a feature of many of our Guided Journeys and Lodge Packages. We also encourage you to add a two-hour or full-day scenic Kenai River rafting trip, or a day of guided Alaska fishing to any independent itinerary.

Alaska Silver Salmon Fishing Trips

Either on the Kenai River or in scenic Resurrection Bay, you'll have an action-packed day of silver salmon fishing in August or September with our Alaska fishing guides. The excitement of hooking one of these prized fish is worth the trip to Alaska in itself. Our boats are equipped with the best and latest fishing gear including depth and fish finders and top-quality rods and reels.

Alaska King Salmon Fishing Trips on the Kenai River

Fish the lower Kenai River for giant king salmon from late June through July. Kenai River kings are the largest in the world: the world record king was caught on the Kenai River and weighed in at over 97 pounds! 50 to 60 pound kings are not unusual, and whether you're an accomplished angler or a recreational fisherman, our professional Alaska fishing guides will put you on the fish. Up to four people fish comfortably from our state-of-the-art Willie Predator power boats on the Kenai River.

Alaska Trout & Salmon Fishing Trips on the upper Kenai River

We have specialized in fishing the upper Kenai River between Kenai Lake and Skilak Lake and the lower Kenai River since 1977. Our Alaska fishing guides are experts in spinning, casting and fly fishing techniques on these waters. Whichever technique you prefer, our guides will help hone your skills and assist you in learning something new. You can expect up to eight hours of exciting fishing for tasty red (sockeye) salmon, the biggest rainbow trout you've ever laid eyes on and colorful Dolly Varden.
