Alaska Fishing Trips: Kenai River and Homer
Catch fish so big you don't have to lie!
If you are looking for a first-rate guided Alaska fishing trip, you have come to the right place. We have fished the waters of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula for over 32 years. Whether you prefer trophy king salmon, rainbow trout, feisty coho salmon, sockeye salmon, pink salmon, or huge halibut, lingcod and rockfish we can accommodate you.
We offer day fishing trips and Alaska fishing vacation packages, which can include both lodging and guided fishing adventures on the Kenai River and salt waters accessible from Homer, Alaska (including Kachemak Bay, Cook Inlet and the Gulf of Alaska). We are licensed, insured, and fully equipped with quality boats, tackle and safety equipment, so you can enjoy the fishing experience of a lifetime without having to worry about the details.
Please take a look at our client testimonials, and you'll see why we are among the best fishing charters serving Alaska's Kenai Peninsula.
We offer some of the best salmon and rainbow trout fishing trips available on the Kenai River. We focus on king salmon fishing during the month of July, and depending on run strength and timing, we offer sockeye salmon charters during late July and early August. August is also a good month for silver salmon fishing, which continues into October. During later these months, we also fish for rainbow trout, and offer combo trips where we catch both silver salmon and rainbow trout.
Please visit our Kenai River Fishing Trips page for additional details.
We are the ONLY drift-only charter in Homer, Alaska. While fishing aboard our 34-foot Homer charter boat "Red Ryder", you will experience one of the most unique, fun-filled and action-packed saltwater fishing trips available in Alaska! We do not use bait for bottom fishing, and we never anchor the boat. Instead, we use motor-assisted boat control techniques, which allow us to fish lightweight tackle regardless of most tide and wind situations.
