From late May until the end of the season on July 31, we fish the world-renowned glacier-fed Kenai River and the nearby Kasilof River for Chinook salmon. Known as Kings for reasons that are obvious to anyone fortunate enough to have battled one, Kings average 20-50 pounds, with many taken yearly that far surpass this. The current world record Chinook, weighing 97.4 pounds, was caught here by a good friend of the Lodge - Mr. Les Anderson - on May 17, 1985. These Chinook return annually to spawn in two overlapping runs, providing the absolute best King fishing in the world.
Our Kenai River lodge includes plush log homes with 2 or 3 bedrooms, completely furnished with amenities such as washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, barbeque and daily maid service. All Kenai River cabins are tastefully decorated with native artifacts, fish & game mounts, Alaskan art and wildlife prints. Our Kenai River lodge and cabins are ideal for couples, families, fishing parties of 6 to 8 hardcore fishermen or large corporate groups.
