Planning An Alaska Trip

Planning an Alaska trip requires careful research and a firm understanding of the many options adventurers have available.  With over 660,000 square miles of varied terrain, 44,000 miles of coastline, 12,000 rivers, 3 million lakes, and endless small ponds and creeks, choosing where and when to plan your Alaska fishing adventure can be a daunting task.  For the past 28 years, we have worked very hard to assist our guests in creating custom Alaska fishing trips and we look forward to helping you make the most of your fishing vacation to the Greatland.

Getting Here

Traveling to the Kenai Peninsula is much easier than many more remote Alaska fishing locations. When planning an Alaska trip, one simply needs to fly into Anchorage and from there, either rent a car, or take a commuter flight to the town of Kenai and rent a car from there.

When to visit

Despite it’s infamy, the Kenai is just as unpredictable as any salmon bearing river. Not even the most focused crystal ball will be able to predict the exact timing or ensuing strength of pending returns, and there are other factors to consider also.
