Go Fishing

Visit the Soldotna Visitor Center to connect with the local guides who help visitors choose their own fishing adventure path. Learn more about the iconic, nearby trout and salmon runs and connect with local fishing guides who hook legendary catches. From providing the equipment and gear to transportation and sportfishing licenses, expert guides make fishing in the Kenai River a breeze. While at the visitor center, check out local resident Les Anderson’s 97-pound, world-record Kenai River king salmon that is on display. Look for four types of salmon, including chinook, sockeye, coho and humpback, that run from May through November. Any time of the year, scour the water for rainbow trout and Dolly Varden. Set up camp at one of the nearby campsites or venture down the easily accessible trails from nearby hotels, lodges and RV parks. Embark on a floatplane fishing excursion to fish some of Alaska’s best hidden gems.
