The Kenai Peninsula offers world class sport fishing for King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Silver Salmon, Halibut and Rainbow Trout.

Sport fishing on the Kenai Peninsula attracts visitors from all over the world. The Kenai Peninsula holds several world class fisheries within a short drive from the City of Soldotna. The world famous Kenai River flows through downtown Soldotna. The Kenai River holds the current world record king salmon and seven of the ten largest kings ever landed on rod and reel. This river literally teems with fish at various times of the summer and fall.

Just 12 miles south of Soldotna, anglers can find excellent guided and bank fishing opportunities on the Kasilof River for three different species of salmon.

World class halibut fishing can be found one to two hours south of Soldotna in the coastal towns of Ninilchik, Anchor Point and Homer.

Fishing, beach combing, horse back riding, kayaking, clamming and hiking are just a few of the many activities found on the Kenai Peninsula.

Although there are public access fishing locations throughout the Kenai Peninsula, many visitors to the area, utilize the services of our many guided fishing businesses. When hiring a guide, there are some key questions to ask. First question could be "do I need a guide"? Guides offer several things that the visiting angler lacks. Two of which are a boat, fishing equipment and a local knowledge of fish movements. Once a determination is made that a guide is needed, research by word of mouth and internet searches will surely turn up a list of established guide services. Calling a guide on the phone and listening closely to fishing options based on your desired dates and fishing experiences often helps a angler determine what is available. Asking for references can give a potential guided fisherman a chance to talk to others that have fished this area and perhaps gain a different perspective first hand. Most guided fishing operation's websites and print literature provide directions, maps, suggested items to bring, services and equipment included with the guided trip. The key to good fishing on the Kenai Peninsula whether guided or unguided is a positive attitude and the desire for adventure!
