    Experience the world-class fishing Alaska's Kenai Peninsula has to offer, whether novice or experienced angler, family, corporate group or happy couple. Professionally guided trips include fishing for salmon and trout on the world famous Kenai River, the serene Kasilof river, fishing for Pacific Halibut off the Alaskan coast and more.

    Walk right out of our lodge or cabins and hop on board for the ultimate in Alaska fishing and adventure. Experienced guides will take you on a float plane, leaving right from our dock, and fly you off to the most remote areas on the Kenai Peninsula. Unique and exciting fishing trips for salmon, trout, grayling, bear viewing and more.

    Alaska Denise Lake Lodge is located on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula near the town of Soldotna nestled in a setting of white birch trees and overlooking picturesque Denise Lake. The quiet, friendly and relaxed atmosphere at the fishing lodge offers a warm Alaska Inn setting for our guests to experience the best of Alaska Sport Fishing and Adventure.

    Located just 147 miles via paved scenic highway from Anchorage in south-central Alaska, Soldotna is adjacent to portions of the famed Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, which contains nearly 2 million acres of pristine wilderness. The refuge and nearby state park lands are home to Moose, Caribou, Brown and Black Bear, Wolves, Dall Sheep, Mountain Goats, Bald Eagles, Swans, a wide variety of Ducks and Geese and other wildlife. Moose are often seen at the lodge and wander right downtown, and Bald Eagles are commonly sighted. Soldotna claims to have more river city parks within the City's boundary than anywhere else in Alaska. You will understand why Soldotna is a favorite playground for Alaskans and Denise Lake Lodge is a favorite destination for non Alaskans as well as some non locals from the other side of the state.

    The world famous Kenai River is a major attraction to the Soldotna area. This glacier-fed river and its many tributaries and lakes are known world-wide for excellent fishing for all varieties of Salmon, Halibut and even Trophy Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden and Grayling. The Kenai River has two runs of King Salmon each year and the sport-fishing world-record King Salmon was caught on the Kenai River weighing over 97 pounds! Our Soldotna Lodge provides many Soldotna Lodge and Sport Fishing Packages that include fishing of all types.

    We look forward to your stay with us and hope you enjoy your experience of a lifetime!

    - Your hosts, Jim and Elaine
