Make plans with your guide before booking your room. They may be able to help you find a good place and a better deal right in Cooper landing. I booked a room in Soldotna before I made fishing plans and spent a little extra time traveling. It wasn't too bad, but it would have been nicer to be right there.

First time salmon fishing and first time salmon fishing on the river. The fishing is sitting right off the bank anchored down while you lure is diving close to the bottom from the current. Just a lot of sitting waiting for a bite.

Don't be disappointed if you don't catch all the fish you expect to. So many variables with weather and conditions. Enjoy the experience of it all. The camaraderie, the scenery is wonderful, being out on the big water. Being able to go fishing in Alaska is a blessing, not a given.

This is surf fishing. We thought it was specific for halibut which is not true. Title of this fishing expedition needs to change. It was a great experience. We caught fish without sea sickness and if you need to go pee there is bathroom :) beautiful scenes to view while fishing. Take your chairs, coolers, relax, enjoy and have good time. My grandsons (10 & 13) recommend and so do we.

Make sure you know what days correspond with the fish you desire to catch. For example, you are not allowed to keep Halibut on Wednesdays.

July is on and off just like a lot of people talk about. But if you take your crew there and keep lines in the water there's a good chance you'll have Salmon for dinner

If you're after Salmon, pay very close attention to the timing of the Runs and what is happening with the Dip Netting. In hindsight, we should have gone to the Kasilof or down to Seward as both had many more fish than the Kenai during the time we had available.

Great river to fish. When I was there the river was high, so it will always depend on the conditions at the time of your planned trip. Beginning of July 2023.

Have a plan for your catch. Grocery stores have coolers you can transport fish home in, local processors can freeze and ship them, or you could catch and release. Ask your guides what the nearby options are and the price range for each.

Managed to catch 2 Silvers (missed 2 - didn't get them in the boat!), nevertheless, we enjoyed our day on the beautiful Kenai River. Our last 30 minutes sitting in our spot we started in, a beautiful Eagle landed in the tree right next to us on the bank. What a great way to end the day as the sun was setting. Book Scout Lake Adventures for your next fishing trip!

We went on a honeymoon fishing trip with Captain Robert. We had such a fun time and caught limits for the both of us. Captain was knowledgeable about the fisheries, fun to chat with and even took us to look for Eagles after we finished fishing. He had all the good gear and had a heater to keep us warm, it was a chilly morning! It was an adventure we wont forget! We will definitely be back to fish with Captain Robert with our family. Thank you!

I did a one day float trip for a chance to catch Salmon. Catch for day was one Rainbow Trout and Arctic Char. Salmon had left weeks earlier Shore lunch of Reindeer brats, beer and chips was great. Guide RyN was of great help on boat control, rigging line, and trying to locate fish.

Captain Bob got our group of three out on a trip with short notice and in tough fishing conditions. He did a great job of getting us into fish and we were able to walk away with some fish for the freezer. It was enjoyable to spend several hours on the water with him. Would highly recommend a trip. I hope to be back.

Cole is a great Captain. Although my timing and the weather weren’t ideal for the late Silver “run”, Cole set us up on fish early and communicated with other fishermen in the area to continue to land us fish. Cole was super easy to talk with as he gave us fishing tips and things to look for and do while we were visiting. I will definitely see him again on my next trip to Kenai.
