Peninsula Sportfishing – Kenai River

Visit the stunning Alaskan waters on the Kenai Peninsula, and enjoy a day of fishing with Peninsula Sportfishing. A local and professional guide, Guide Jared Lindquist has over 20 years of fishing experience in the area, and 10 years of guiding. He welcomes all types of anglers, and he’ll make sure you have an amazing day in these beautiful natural spots.

Jared will take you out on his 20’ Alumaweld aluminum fishing boat, powered by a 50 HP Yamaha engine – perfect for fishing the waters of the Kenai River. The boat can take up to 4 anglers, and it features a fishfinder to help put you on the fish and an ice box. It’s equipped with life jackets and all safety gear required by the Coast Guard.

The waters of the Kenai River are prolific and they hide some trophy specimens ready to take your bait. You’ll be fishing for 4 out of the 5 Salmon species – King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, and Pink Salmon! Monster Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden fishing are a favorite as well.

Your guide will provide you with all the fishing equipment necessary to reel in some prized fish – G-Loomis, St Croix, and Cast King rods, reel, and tackle. If you want to try out fly fishing, you’ll find the equipment on board as well. Test out a variety of techniques, and you’re sure to take home some real beauties!

At the end of the trip, Jared will clean and fillet your catch for you, so you can take it straight to the table upon your return home. Feel free to bring your kids along and show them how fun fishing can be, making some great memories. All you have to do is buy a fishing license before the trip, bring some rain gear, food, and drinks, and you’re all set!

Join Peninsula Sportfishing and let them show you a great time fishing on the Alaskan Kenai River!

If fishing is bad on the Kenai River, the Captain will take you out on Kasilof.

Jared Lindquist, born and raised in Moose Pass, Alaska has been fishing the Kenai Peninsula ever since he could wet a line. He grew up with the Kenai River and other tributaries right in his back yard, which made it easy for him to develop the skills of an avid fisherman and become a fishing guide. At a young age he was hooked and acquired a lifelong hobby and as the saying goes "has fish blood running through his veins. Not only is he extremely passionate for the sport and the fish that are in this paradise, but he is young, hungry and competitive. It is the unpredictable that keeps him striving to be the best possible fisherman, guide, and outdoor enthusiast he can be. Throughout his 30 years in Alaska, he has been fishing the renowned waters of the Kenai Peninsula as well as the hidden secret spots that only the true locals know about. There is never a day in the season Jared cant find some fish. Every day is a different experience and Jared will accommodate clients from all backgrounds. Whether it be your first day ever fishing or your thousandth day on the water, every client will be treated with respect, a positive attitude and enthusiasm!
