Erick Fish and his sons are the owner and operators of Fish and Sons Kenai Charters, which focuses on personalized Salmon and Trout charters on the Upper Kenai River. The guide is one of a handful of guide services that possess a permit to fish the Wildlife Refuge and Canyon area of the Upper Kenai River. Fish & Sons is located in the town of Cooper Landing on the Kenai Peninsula. Getting to Cooper Landing is easy. It is a 2-3 hour drive from Anchorage, and there are ample places to stop and enjoy the scenery.

Fish and Sons offers lodging in addition to just guided day trips so it's great for someone looking to just fish for a day or those anglers looking for an overnight multi day fishing adventure as well.

Guided Fishing on the Upper Kenai River

Fish and Sons Kenai Charters specializes in providing the perfect guided fishing experience for you. Each trip is individualized and suitable for anglers of all skill levels. Bring the kids. Bring the wife. Teach them all how to fish – everyone is welcome, and the guides are patient and knowledgeable.

When you fish with Erick or his sons, you can target King Salmon, Silver, Salmon and Sockeye Salmon. In addition, there are Trophy Rainbow Trout and beautiful Dolly Varden here too. Those are the focus and draw of fishing on the Kenai River. This is a fabled river that draws anglers from around the world. It is where the world record King Salmon was caught, and it remains a place where that record can be beaten.

Guests can choose from half-day or full-day charters. A half-day charter is perfect for families with kids and those solo anglers who want to squeeze in a bit of fishing. Half-day charters are four hours and provide you with ample time to enjoy targeting Salmon and big Trout. A full-day charter is perfect for those who fish regularly and want to be able to float more of the river and get even further away from the crowds.

Lodging with Fish & Sons

For guests looking for overnight accommodations Fish & Sons offers several two-bedroom mountain cottages for guests to book. The fully furnished cottages make a comfortable and cozy base if you are looking to fish on the Kenai for several days. They feature a full kitchen, full bathrooms, and a beautiful and large deck that provides a scenic view of the wilderness. You can walk to some of Copper Landing’s best restaurants, view bears and other wildlife from the deck, or relax after a long day of battling Salmon.
