Fishing with Chadwick’s Fishing Guide Service

Chadwick’s is based out of Soldotna follows the fish so, each time they charter a run, it is to where the fish are. So, if you want the opportunity to toss flies at a lot of fish, consider booking a guided fishing adventure with Chadwick’s. You get a professional guide with current knowledge of the rivers and the fish- both help make this a fishing adventure of a lifetime.

The Rivers

Chadwick’s Fishing Guide Services fishes the Kenai River and the Kasilof River. They are a few miles apart and offer a world of differences for fishers. The Kasilof is a slow river on which you can drift or fish from the bank. There are no motors allowed here. One of the significant advantages of fishing the Kasilof is that it has one of the earliest runs of King Salmon – Starting on May 1 when the season opens. In addition, it has a population of big Trophy Rainbow trout, which are available all season long.

The Kenai River has three parts, the upper, middle, and lower segments of the river. The upper Kenai is a fantastic fishery and holds many King Salmon spawning beds, which close early. There is also a mega run of Sockeye that make it into the upper Kenai River, and you can fish for those in early summer. The middle Kenai is a drifting paradise, and the short run of water is well-known for producing big fish. Finally, the lower Kenai River is home to all five species of Pacific Salmon, including the Pinks, which usually do not swim but a few miles upstream.
The Kenai River holds the world record for King Salmon, which is one of the reasons it is such an in-demand place to toss flies. Both rivers are capable of producing the next world record, King Salmon. The Kasilof is hard to beat if you love the quiet mornings and open water. If you want the option of motoring to the best fishing locations, the Kenai is your best bet. You spend more time fishing on both rivers and less time traveling.
