    Default Family vacation – lodging/guide info?

    I just signed up and it looks like a very nice site you have here. I am a moderator on a Michigan hunting and fishing forum and was looking for a little advice. My wife, son and I are considering a trip to Alaska to do some fishing and site seeing. We would probably go to the Kenai/ Homer area for the fishing portion in early July. We would like to target Kings for a couple days and Halibut for a day and possibly a fly out trip for Rainbows. There appears to be a wide range of packages and pricing out there. We can’t afford these high end packages that are $3,000+ per person. We don’t need anything fancy as far as lodging but would like to fish with someone experienced. I did find a place with reasonable rates but I’m also aware that you usually get what you pay for. Does anyone have any experience with this operator?

    A PM would be great if you care not to post on the open forum. Also, if you have other recommendations, I would love to hear them. I’m sure you guys get bombarded with these kinds of questions so again, anyone taking the time to respond is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    For early july you may be out of luck. I would call about everyone and see if there is space available. We are all ready booked for July 2007. Check out the KSA & KPGA web site for more guide info.

    Yep, what he said. I started last January for a trip this past July and I was way behind the curve.

    I had to stay in Sterling, because we couldn't find a place in Kenai. Try calling the Chamber of Commerce.

    We stayed here: http://www.spurrviewhouse.com/

    Great place, friendly people and their son runs a fish camp.

    Give them a try.

    Try fostersalaskacabins.com. They are right on the river (Beaver Creek) and there are a couple of guides who work out of there - Moby King and Fishin Rods. Cabins sleep 4.

    Smile early start

    Yep, the best places get taken early, or are booked from year to year in advance. That fosters place is a good Idea. Moby is a good capt, and that is a good place to start fishing from. Beaver creek is handy.
    I don't know how to get ahold of Fosters cabins, but Moby would know. He can be reached at www.mobyking.com
    or call him.. I see he is home because he plowed snow from his driveway today. 907-262-6301
    I have sent several people to a few other guys down beaver creek way too, so if that don't pan out,, let me know and I can steer you ..
    also, if you want to get the New Soldotna Chamber of commerce summer 2007 book, you can get it free by just logging onto the Soldotna Chamber website and requesting information. you will recieve a packet in the mail in a few weeks inclucing the new guide that was just put out a few days ago.
    Have fun and hope to see you this summer on the Kenai

    Re - your unanswered question about that website; yes, people on this website and elsewhere have had experience with that operation; it is the same phone number as the "funnymoose lodge"; see below for reviews:
