Get Hooked on Kings Near Anchorage!

Looking for a quick fishing adventure? Something close to town and not an all-day drive? Alaska Outdoors Addiction’s 4-hour King Salmon charter on Knik River is what you’re after!

Captain Brett or Captain Brian will take you on a great family-friendly adventure, absolutely perfect for seasoned veterans and for those who have never fished before and are looking for a low-stress, relaxing day on the water. The Knik River is located 30 minutes from Anchorage and 20 minutes from Wasilla. This fishery is a 100% hatchery-enhanced fishery specifically stocked by the State of Alaska to provide sport fishing opportunities for King Salmon.

The main fishing technique you’ll be using is either back trolling or trolling while on anchor. While doing this, your guide will have two to three rods rigged with cured Salmon eggs and one to two with a plug or a spinner. Depending on which lure or bait is catching the most fish, your professional guide will change gear out to give you the highest opportunity to harvest a King Salmon. At this time, you’ll let out your line and place it in the rod holder, waiting for the tell-tale epic takedown of an Alaska King Salmon. We also utilize power trolling, back trolling, drifting salmon eggs under a bobber, back bouncing, jigging, as well as casting and retrieving plugs or spinners. We’ll do whatever it takes to get you on a delicious Alaskan king salmon!

Your fishing adventure starts on a 21’ Wooldridge boat that can safely take up to 6 anglers. This boat features an ice box. The price of your trip includes all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle. Fishing licenses aren’t included, so make sure to get them prior to the trip.

Regulations allow each guest to keep one King Salmon per day. Once you’ve harvested your King Salmon, you are not allowed to fish for the remainder of the trip. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Born, raised, and year-round residents of Anchorage, Alaska, we grew up on the water fishing with our dad. As soon as I started running the boat at age 4, I knew I wanted to share the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness with folks from around the world.
