Kenai Peninsula Fishing Charters

The Kenai Peninsula is a fishing mecca during the summer months. Locals and visitors alike flock to the world-famous Kenai River to fish for Sockeye (Red) and Chinook (King) Salmon, as well as trout and other varieties. Coastal towns of Homer and Seward are ideally situated for deep sea charters, where anglers can hook into halibut, rockfish, Coho (silver) salmon, King Salmon, and more.

If a fishing experience in Alaska is high on your list, it's great to try both a river fishing experience along Kenai, as well as a deep sea charter. The experiences are quite unique from each other.

And, as always, a bonus of booking a guide or charter is that they'll fillet your catch, package it, and mail it home for you!
