The Kenai Peninsula has many rivers that have thousands of King (Chinook) salmon entering them every year. Alaskan Kenai River fishing holds 8 out of the top 10 record King salmon in the world, with the world record being 97.4 lbs. It’s common to catch fish weighing between 60 and 80 lbs., with the majority of the fish averaging 30 to 50 lbs. The Kenai King salmon are some of the hardest fighting fish in the world. Plan on fighting one of these massive fish anywhere from a half hour to an hour when in the tidal waters.
An expert in the four species that are common in the Kenai Peninsula (King, Sockeye, Coho, and Pink), Gary has the experience to know which fish are worth keeping and which are starting to turn bad.

We Want to Help
Alaska Fish On Charters will help you with trip ideas, tours, and outings to fill time that you’re not fishing. Many of our clients like to try some fishing on their own, so we supply them with poles and good locations, along with some of our fishing secrets.

We supply buckets, shovels, boots, instructions, and a place to clean, vacuum pack, and freeze the clams.
