King Salmon Fishing

Fish the lower Kenai River (near Soldotna and Sterling) or Resurrection Bay for giant king salmon June through July. Kenai River kings are the largest in the world; the world record king was caught on the Kenai and weighed in at over 97 pounds! Many of our guests catch fish in the 20 to 30 pound range, and 50 to 60 pound kings are even caught on occasion. Whether you're an accomplished angler or a recreational fisherman, our professional 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 lower Kenai River or Willie Nemesis power boats in Resurrection Bay.

Update as of July 4, 2018: Due to current realities with the king salmon populations - and based on our support of local guidelines from the Kenai River Sportfishing Association - Kenai Riverside Fishing will be practicing catch and release fishing for Kenai River king salmon for the duration of our 2018 season in order to protect this important natural resource. Our staff will be happy to discuss wonderful alternative fishing options for non-threatened species if you wish to catch and keep fish during your trip with us. Please call us at 800.478.4100.
