Alaska salmon fishing is renowned around the world and Kenai River salmon fishing is some of the best in Alaska.  The Kenai is over 80 miles long and is best fished by boat.


The key to success on the big water of the Kenai River is choosing the right Kenai River fishing guide.  On this river knowledge and experience are essential.

We offer Kenai River fishing charters focused on Kenai River sockeye salmon fishing, Kenai River silver salmon fishing and Kenai River pink salmon fishing.


Due to poor returns of Kenai River king salmon in recent years we do not offer guided Kenai River king salmon fishing trips at this time.


Kenai River fly fishing for sockeye salmon is perhaps the most popular, and with good reason.  Kenai River red salmon fishing can be spectacular with two runs of salmon often totaling over 1 million fish.

Kenai River coho (silver) salmon fishing is also a great choice and Kenai River fly fishing or Kenai River spin fishing for these slightly larger acrobatic fish is a fall favorite for many of our return clients.

Kenai River pink salmon fishing provides a lot of action and is usually combined with Kenai River trout fishing and/or Kenai River silver salmon fishing.  Pinks only return to the Kenai on even numbered years.

The incredible Kenai River salmon runs bring an immense amount of food for virtually every living creature within the Kenai watershed and we have them to thank for our incredible abundance of resident fish and wildlife.  Even the plants in the river valley rely on the returning fish to bring and deposit large quantities of nitrogen.

Experience a Kenai River fishing charter with your local Kenai River fishing guide Mike Adams!

The upper Kenai River in Cooper Landing flows through the beautiful Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and the Chugach National Forest.  At Alaskan Angling Adventures we have the rare permits to be your Cooper Landing fishing guide on the entire upper Kenai River including the most remote stretch, the Kenai Canyon.

On your guided Cooper Landing drift boat fishing trip we drift and fish the motor free waters of the upper Kenai River nestled between the peaks of the Kenai Mountains.


Two sockeye salmon runs and two silver salmon runs offer a lot of opportunity for guided fly fishing for salmon or guided spin fishing for salmon both from the boat and from shore.


Copper Landing drift boat fishing trips on the upper Kenai are an exceptional experience.  We are your local Cooper Landing fishing guides and this is our backyard.  We would love to share it with you on a Cooper Landing fishing charter!

Perhaps no fish is more synonymous with Alaska salmon fishing than the king salmon.  Drift boat charters on the Kasilof River focus on the high tide to give us the best shot at the freshest salmon.  Take a Kasilof River fishing charter and take shot at Alaska’s most iconic fish.

The Kasilof also has a very significant sockeye salmon run.  Guided Kasilof River red salmon fishing trips are an excellent choice between the king salmon runs.


In recent years Alaska Fish and Game has frequently closed king salmon fishing in many parts of the state.  The Kasilof River has fared better than most, but it is always possible that your king salmon fishing charters could be impacted by regulation changes.


We are your flexible Alaska guide service and if regulations change we will find the best alternative for your guided fishing trip.

Alaska king salmon fishing is big game fishing and we slow troll with bait or tackle to give you the best chance of landing these hard fighting legends.  Every tide is different and king salmon fishing in Alaska can be the most challenging of all Alaska salmon fishing but it can also be the most rewarding.  Increase your odds of landing a Kasilof River king salmon by fishing with an experienced Kasilof River fishing guide.

Located in the heart of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and the middle of the 80 mile long Kenai River, Skilak Lake empties into the Kenai River 50 river miles from Cook Inlet.


Our middle Kenai River guided salmon fishing charters focus on the 12 miles of river between the lake and Bings Landing in Sterling Alaska.


The fly fishing for salmon on the Kenai River can be epic and the fresh fish in the middle Kenai fight hard and don’t give up.


Spin fishing can also be very effective and there are times when the aggressive takes make this style of salmon fishing a great choice.


At Alaskan Angling Adventures we offer guided sockeye salmon fishing and guided trips for silver salmon during their respective upriver runs on this scenic stretch of the Kenai River.  On a clear day you can see all the way across Cook Inlet and the majestic Kenai Mountains provide a beautiful backdrop for our guided drift boat fishing trips through the wildlife refuge.


Motors are allowed on the middle Kenai and we use our motor to cross Skilak Lake and at times to move between the best holding water.  We also salmon fish on the drift and form the best spots along the shoreline of the wider middle Kenai River.  Guide fishing trips on the middle Kenai River are an excellent fit for lots of fishermen and having a great Kenai River guide is the secret to success.


Come experience Kenai River salmon fishing with us and make some unforgettable memories to last a lifetime!
