Fishing

Alaska River Adventures has fished the beautiful rivers and lakes of Alaska for 40 years. We provide full day trips to just about anywhere on the Kenai Peninsula and half day trips on the Upper Kenai River. Fishing opportunities change depending on the season, but our highly experienced guides will take you where the fish are biting and the scenery is breathtaking.

King Salmon - Alaska’s Kasilof River gives you the rare opportunity to try your hand at fishing for the mighty King Salmon.
