Drakes on the Kenai is a 5,800 square foot lodge that sits along the banks of the Kenai River. The lodge offers 150 feet of prime, private Kenai River access in a secluded location where guests enjoy the peace, quiet, and fishing for which Alaska is famous. The lodge is easy to reach as it sits technically in the town of Soldotna. You can fly into Anchorage and then fly into Soldotna or drive to the lodge directly from Anchorage - 2.5-hour scenic drive.

Fishing with Drakes on the Kenai

Soldotna sits between Seward and Homer along the Sterling Highway. It gives guests access to some of the best Saltwater Fishing they will ever experience. Saltwater fishing along the Peninsula includes fishing for big Halibut, King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Chum Salmon, and Pink Salmon. In addition to the excellent Halibut and Salmon fishing, guests should try their hand at fishing for the big Lingcod and Rockfish that are plentiful in the area. The Lingcod can be so large that you can put your head in their mouth. If you want to fish for big fish, then Saltwater fishing in the area is something that will blow your mind.

Freshwater fishing is not to be underestimated either. This is the world-famous Kenai River and the place where the world-record, 126 pound King Salmon was landed. Guests can fish from the property or take advantage of the many local guides in the area. The lodge is the best place to start. Make sure to inform them of your fishing plans when you book your reservation. They have access to many options that most guests will not find on their own.

You cannot beat the local area and Drakes on the Kenai is a perfect base to make all of your fishing adventures a reality.

Lodging with Drakes on the Kenai

Expect a big and beautiful lodge with expansive sitting areas, river rock fireplace, beautifully appointed rooms, and big modern kitchen. There are plenty of decks with sitting areas and places to enjoy meals outdoors too.

There are washer and dryer units in each of the units and guests enjoy the fire pit as a place to congregate and share fishing tails. What you should expect is a comfortable stay in a beautiful lodge that offers a restful vista between the extremes of fishing the Kenai Peninsula.
