Alaska Fishing & Lodging offers fishermen packaged fishing trips that include room, fishing, and guides. The lodge is located in the town of Soldotna which is along the Sterling Highway, aka Alaska 1 and about a two-hour drive from Anchorage. Soldotna also has its own airport that offers a variety of flight services including service by Alaska Airlines.

The lodge offers a series of modern cabins with full bathrooms, kitchenettes, and everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay in Alaska along one of the most famous Alaskan rivers - the Kenai River. The advantage of staying in Soldotna is that you have a whole town available to you. So groceries, restaurants, and nightlife are available.

Fishing with Alaska Fishing & Lodge

Alaska is a big place, and the Kenai Peninsula is huge. Soldotna sites between Homer Alaska and Seward Alaska. For fishing that means you have outstanding access to freshwater and saltwater fishing.

The lodge offers a variety of charters for saltwater fishing opportunities in Cook Inlet as well as plenty of freshwater fishing along the Kenai and Russian Rivers. They even offer fly-out fishing trips around the area. The best thing about fishing with these guys is that they focus on making your fishing trip the best it can be and along the Kenai River, which is pretty outstanding.

Fish and Fishing the Kenai River and Cook Inlet

The Kenai River is a beautiful shade of light blue, and it presents an opportunity for drift fishing or bank fishing. Both options are awesome if you have a guide. If you do not have a guide you will be arm-to-arm with everyone else - this is the river where they say combat fishing was invented. That is not the best way to enjoy the bountiful fishing that Alaska offers.

The Kenai River offers all five species of Pacific salmon along with trophy sized Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden. To find the trout, you have to find the salmon and during the summer, the best place to find the trout is in the King Salmon spawning beds. Trout love Salmon roe and the best place for trout to find salmon roe is where the salmon are spawning. This is why a guide is your best bet as they know where the King beds are located.

Cook Inlet is also an outstanding place to fish for trophy-sized fish. Homer is the world capital for Halibut, and if you want to target Pacific Halibut that are over 100 pounds or even upwards of 500 pounds, then Cook Inlet is a good place to start that hunt. Halibut are not the only big fish out there. The Inlet is also home to Ling Cod, Rockfish, and Salmon. The salmon pool in the Inlet before they head upstream.

If you want to find a place that offers you a comfortable environment, friendly staff, and some of the world's best fishing, then check out Alaska Fishing & Lodging.
