KS#1 Guided King Salmon Fishing on the Kenai River | Kasilof River
King Salmon are the largest of all species of Salmon, and it just so happens that the King Salmon entering the Kenai River are among the largest genetic strain of King Salmon in the WORLD! This means that there is always the possibility of catching the next world record, however, your chances of hooking into a fish in the 40, 50 or even 60 lb are greater than any river or area in the pacific north west. Fish weighing in from the 30 to 60+ pound range (or larger of course) are what we are after. When a King bites you know it! The rod nearly snaps in half, and the force of that fish pulling on the line can make it seem nearly impossible to hold onto! After you set the hook and you have a good grip on the rod, sit down, tighten the strings and hold on because one of the most thrilling and electrifying tugs of war is about to begin on the end of your line.
KS#2 Guided Silver Salmon or Rainbow Trout Fishing on the Kenai | Kasilof Rivers
Ready for some fast action, hard fighting fish that will have our Quantum reels smoking! Then Silver Salmon fishing is for you. Here on the Kenai we have big fish with major attitudes return every year starting in August. Silver salmon are notorious for great action and lots of fight. The greatest thing about the Silver Salmon season is that they return in the fall (our favorite season of the year), multiple hook ups are the norm, and limits are what we are after. We fish for these silver bullets in a multitude of ways. One of the most common ways to fish for them is to back troll or soak plugs and eggs. Another very popular and one of our more favorite ways of fishing for Silver's is throwing spinners with light weight tackle and spinning reels.
