    Default Kenai Peninsula Area Fishing???

    I'm looking for some suggestions for good guides around the Kenai Peninsula for salmon fishing around late May, early June. Preferably something that includes lodging. Which rivers should I be interested in, and which should I avoid? I'm not too familiar with the area so I'd appreciate any input that you guys have.

    The fishing sucks on the Kenai Peninsula. Not many fish and too crowded!

    Now there's a very helpful post. There is incredible fishing to be had on the Kenai Peninsula, both freshwater and salt. The most notable rivers, that everyone knows about are the Kenai, Kasilof, Deep Creek, Ninilchik and Anchor Rivers. In late May to early June there are kings entering the rivers and if you pick a good guide or lodge they should be able to get you into some. And that, too, goes for both fresh and salt. There are a number of lodges that will set you up to do both. And obviously there are other fishing opportunities, too.

    I live down here, so I have never used any guide services, so I can't really be too helpful suggesting anyone from experience, but I'd try going into the "Services" link above and then checking out the "Lodges - Southcentral" for links to some lodges down this way. If you have any questions about them don't hesitate to contact them directly and also ask questions about them here. I'd imagine you're going to find someone here that can attest to their fish catching abilities.

    Also, check out some of the guide services and lodges at: http://www.alaskaoutdoorjournal.com. You might want to give Early Fishing in Soldotna a try at: http://www.earlyfishing.com/. I have never fished with them, but I know their reputation and I wouldn't hesitate to use them if I wanted an all inclusive package.

    I'm heading down tomorrow for the weekend. How are the lakes doing? Is there any fishing off the spit?

    Not that I've witnessed, though I'd have to guess you can always catch some of the bottom dwellers out by Land's End. The kings haven't made their way into the fishing lagoon yet if that's what you're wondering about.

    the Kasilof and Kenai are in full swing by the 1st of June - which one you fish depends upon your objective for the trip... do you want a high odds fishery with a great chance at catching a king (kasilof), or a trophy fishery w/ lower odds, but larger fish on average (kenai). The southern peninsula streams (ninilchik, deep creek, anchor river) are bank fishing spots w/ no need for a guide, but expect crowds and they're only open around the weekends. The King fishing starts slowing off in the saltwater during late may/early June, but it's certainly a possibility, and the halibut fishing is great during this time of year. The advice you have received thusfar for guides is very good. Good luck and have fun!

    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.
