D's Fishing Company - Kasilof River

If you’re looking for the ultimate King Salmon adventure in Alaska, D’s Fishing Company operating on Kasilof River should be on top of your list. Captain Dustin Klepacki is an award-winning fisherman who will try his hardest to put you on the King, and many other species this plentiful river can offer.

You’ll be fishing aboard his reliable and spacious drift boat manufactured by Willie Boats, Inc. It can accommodate up to 4 anglers and comes equipped with the best safety gear. You’ll also find an ice-box on board to keep your catch fresh and chilly.

Kasilof River is becoming more and more popular when it comes to King Salmon fishing because of the hatchery program that allows two of these bad boys a day during May and June. Let the captain show you the most efficient techniques for landing the King, along with Coho, Sockeye, and Steelhead. You’re in for some trolling, drifting, and even fly fishing adventures.

The minimum age for kids is 6 and lifejackets for them will be supplied by the charter. You and your family or fishing buddies will be supplied with all the rods and reels, including fly fishing gear. Lures and cut bait are provided as well, and so is the service of catch cleaning and filleting.

The captain strives to always stay on top of the fish, no matter the season, and at the same time show the versatile Alaskan wildlife to his customers. Is there anything more to ask from a charter?

Dustin Klepacki began his fishing career at an early age of 13 when he fished in tournaments in Northern Illinois until he turned 20. Dustin took 2005 National Champion, 2007 National Team of the year and had many other victories. When he turned 19, he decided to move to Alaska and started working as a deckhand on a Halibut charter, concentrating on exploring the rivers in the Kenai peninsula. One thing led to another, and Dustin became a captain. He enjoys taking his guests out and providing the best service possible.
