Alaska Slammin Salmon Charters

Alaskan Slammin Salmon Charters invites you up to what is honestly one of the best freshwater fisheries on the planet: the winding waters of the Kenai River. Captain Jeff Bressler and his guides spend their summers guiding groups around the Kenai Peninsula on the hunt for trophy Salmon and Trout.

During their summer runs, you can find King (Chinook), Silver (Coho), Sockeye Salmon (Red), and Pink Salmon (on even-numbered years only) swimming through these cold, northern waters. On even years, you will also find Pink Salmon here, making a Salmon Super Grand Slam a genuine possibility. As if that wasn’t enough, you can also find monster Rainbow Trout here, too!

Captain Jeff and the guides he uses run trips aboard’ custom-built aluminum river fishing boats. These vessels are iconic of Alaska’s freshwater river fishing scene and are loved throughout the North for their hardy, reliable design.

You will be able to use a variety of techniques on your hunt for monster Salmon and Trout. Trolling, spinning, drifting, jigging – however you want to fish, Capt. Jeff and the guides he uses have the equipment on board. You will also be provided with both bait and lures, to give you even more options to play with.

And Alaskan Slammin Salmon Charters provides so much more than incredible fishing. Capt. Jeff will happily arrange accommodation for your trip we have cabin rentals just message me about availability and cost. He can also organize a variety of activities for you to enjoy when you’re not on the water, such as hiking and horseback riding, site seeing and more.

Great boats with great captain(s), fishing one of the best rivers in the world – sounds too good to be true! The season’s short and trips sell out fast, though, so book yours now and get ready for that dream Alaskan adventure! 

If you are looking at a date that is already booked, please message me I can usually get another boat or figure out how to get you on the water.  Tight Lines!!!

Member since August 2017
My father got me started fishing when I was around 5 years old. His love of fishing rubbed off on me and then some... I have been river fishing for a variety of fish my whole life. I first began guiding in Northern California in the late 90's and made the move up to Alaska in 1998. Fishing is my life. What can I say, I love to fish. I also really enjoy meeting new people, learning things from them, and hopefully teaching them a few things along the way. I love to fish with kids, it is really a blast to watch their expressions, enthusiasm, and excitement. It is one of the most rewarding experiences a fishing guide could have.
