World Class Fishing

Most visitors come to Kenai to enjoy fishing in the famous Kenai River. Try to beat Les Anderson’s 97 lb. king salmon that he pulled out of the Kenai River in 1985, the world’s largest king salmon ever caught in sport fishing. King salmon, red salmon (or sockeye), silver salmon (or coho), and pink salmon all make their way up the Kenai River. Both the beauty of the scenery and the superior fish that migrate here have earned Kenai River the reputation as an angler’s dream come true.

Beluga Whale Lookout

The salmon attract more than people. Even beluga whales come to join in on the fun. You can look for belugas coming to feed on the salmon from the edge of the bluff at Beluga Whale Lookout, usually in late spring and early summer. The lookout also gives a good view of the mouth of the Kenai River and the volcanoes on the west of the Cook Inlet.

Local Fishing Charters

Many visitors book with local charters, due to their expertise of the Kenai River, best fishing spots, methods and bait  for catching various species of fish, and rules and regulations pertaining to this heavily governed area.
