Overview

Soldotna lodging does not come any better than St. Theresa’s Lakeside Resort. No other Soldotna cabins can match our high quality, comfortable, and cozy cabins. Our cabins are known for their rustic but luxurious quality, making them superior to any other Soldotna lodging option. They are fully furnished, large, comfortable, and clean. St. Theresa’s Lakeside Resort is the optimum destination for anyone in search of the best Soldotna Alaska fishing experience. Our resort is located upon 25 acres of the beautiful lake shore, with views of nature that exceed the scenic surroundings of other Soldotna lodging choices. Our particular Soldotna cabins are just minutes away from all the great salmon, halibut, and trout fishing one could dream of. Our professional guides are highly experienced, and have a full knowledge of the fish on the Kenai Peninsula.

Flying into remote areas of Alaska for fishing and wildlife viewing is an experience of a lifetime. Enjoy the untouched wilderness, fishing off the unbeaten path, and the spectacular scenery of the majestic mountain beauty that will leave you with a lifetime of memories. With thousand of acres of land only reachable by floatplane, it’s ready for the fishing excursion and opportunity only few have ever had a chance to experience. There are several different options for fly out trips; overnighters, sight seeing, massive icefields, glaciers, volcanoes and bear viewing. Depending on the size of your group you could charter the whole plane for that specialize trip, the options are endless.

The Kenai River boasts major runs of four Pacific salmon species—king, red, silver and pink—in addition to trophy-sized rainbow trout and Dolly Varden. Kenai River kings, or Chinook salmon, are among the largest North Pacific salmon, often weighing from 50 to over 85 pounds. The Kenai provides anglers an 80 day window to catch Alaska’s largest freshwater fish, the king salmon. It is important to remember that the Kenai is not known for producing daily limits or extraordinary numbers of kings. In fact many other rivers in Alaska surpass the Kenai in sheer numbers of king salmon. The Kenai is a trophy river. It holds the largest STRAIN of king salmon in the world with the average fish weighing 35-40 lbs. King salmon over fifty pounds are actually common, and nine out of the ten largest kings EVER CAUGHT were taken from the Kenai River. The world record was set here in May 1985 with a Kenai king that weighed 97lbs caught by the late Les Anderson.

We also fish the Kasilof River, this is a drift boat only fishery. The Kasilof is 12 miles to the south and flows from glacier fed Tustamena Lake. It is a peaceful float drift down a pristine river filled with lots of fishing action. Bait is also allowed in this fishery. Multiple hook-ups are frequent. This a great fishing experience on Sundays and Mondays when the Kenai River is closed to guided anglers.

If you would like to enjoy some of the best halibut fishing in Alaska, neighboring Cook Inlet, Homer and Seward are all great choices. Fishing is good to excellent for most of the summer with tides and weather being the biggest factor. Cook Inlet has the second highest tides in the world and water movement can be 20+ feet each way, twice daily. During May and part of June many of the Ninilchik area captains offer our guest combo trips… a chance to troll for near-shore migrating king salmon. Anglers have a chance to catch kings headed for local streams in the area or possibly one of the bigger kenai kings passing through.

Whether your visit is a small honeymoon getaway, a Soldotna Alaska fishing trip, or a large wedding or corporate event, St. Theresa’s Lakeside Resort should be your destination. Our resort has the capacity to ensure an unforgettable adventure for groups sizes ranging from two to two hundred people, or even more. With our history of dozens of wonderful, successful weddings over the years, our resort is known to be the best choice for large events on the Kenai Peninsula.
