Alaska Rivers Company sits just off of the Sterling Highway in Cooper Landing and along the shores of the Kenai River. Getting here is fairly easy. You can drive from Anchorage in about 2.5 hours or you can fly into any of a number of small local airports, such as the one in Sterling.

Alaska Rivers Company offers guided rafting and fishing trips along the upper Kenai River and around the Spencer Glacier area.

Fishing with Alaska Rivers Company

The Kenai River is perhaps one of the most well-known rivers from around the world. Alaska Rivers Company fishes the Upper Kenai and the primary fishing targets are Silver Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden. Fishing here is amazing and while you have plenty of salmon from which to target, there are other Trophy Fish here too. Rainbows Trout and the Dolly Varden are catch-and-release and that means the potential for big Trophy Fish and plenty of them.

The river is a central part of the ecology of this area and not just for its water. The richly teal blue waters obtain that color from mineralization and with it come the aquatic food sources that feed many of the species of fish here. The fish are an essential part of the food Web and even the bears change their habits when the Salmon are in the waters.

The Sockeye Salmon run is in the millions of fish. The King Salmon Population is small and highly protected. The big attraction here besides the fat Rainbow Trout are the Silver Salmon which appear in Late August and September.

This is a guided fishing adventure and that means you have access to many parts of the river that you would not have if you fished on your own.

Lodging with Alaska Rivers Company

The lodge is really a series of eclectic and cool cabins. They are hand-built log cabins along the Kenai River. They are spaced apart so it is as though you have your own little hideaway. Each cabin comes with a small kitchen, linens, and everything you'd need to make a meal minus the groceries.

The cabins vary in size. Most have separate bedrooms and a variety of bed sizes. Expect a full kitchen and indoor plumbing. Some cabins have laundry facilities. Units hold from 2-10 guests each.

Expect clean and comfortable cabins. There is a grocery store in Sterling, which is under 10 miles away. You can also stock up on groceries in Anchorage if you plan to drive over to the lodge from there.
