Book early -- the season can be unpredictable. Bring bug spray!! The mosquitoes weren't terrible while on the water, but once on shore, they were pretty thick. Stay close to where you will be fishing. Anchorage is 2.5 - 3.5 hours from most fishing locations (that we are aware of), and getting a good night's sleep will make your trip much more enjoyable.

We were a bit early to catch the peak king salmon run on the lower Kenai, although we did catch fish. The river was less crowded, however, which made for a more relaxing trip. You will have a better chance to catch more and larger fish later in the month, but you'll have lots of company.

If you really want to catch fish. You need at least a few days. with 1 day ,do not complain about no fish result (target is King salmon.)

River fishing in Kenai may not be for everyone, but I think everyone should try it at least once. I normally fish saltwater but had a great time on the Kenai River with our guide, Brett.
