Jim Rusk Fishing Guide
  • Approximate Cost:
    Full Day: $200 to $299 Per Person
  • Type: Charters & Guides
  • Fishing: Freshwater Fishing Guided Fishing

The Jim Rusk Fishing Guide fishes out of Soldotna and on the Kenai River and Kasilof River for big Salmon, big Trout, and big Char. They have been making fishers' dreams come true since 1987. If you need an experienced guide to show you where to fish on the Kenai or Kasilof Rivers, then this is the place to book.

Fishing on the Alaskan Kenai Peninsula

There are plenty of reasons to use a guide service when you fish in Alaska. For world-famous rivers, such as the Kenai River, you gain more than just someone to show you where to fish. There are many segments of the Kenai River that are restricted by permit, and when you choose a professional guide, you often gain access to fish in areas where others cannot. That alone is huge.

Both the Kenai and the Kasilof Rivers produce big fish. The Kenai River holds the world record for the largest King Salmon caught by a sports fisher. The Jim Rusk Fishing Guide gives you great access to both rivers, and fishing throughout the Alaskan Kenai Peninsula including fishing for Halibut.

We mentioned big fish and these rivers have them. Expect to see King Salmon, Silver Salmon, big Rainbow Trout, big Dolly Varden Char and on the saltwater side of things, big Halibut.

When you choose Jim Rusk Fishing Guide service, expect to use top-shelf equipment that is always in good repair. Expect to fish from high-quality boats that are comfortable, safe, and that are designed so that you can fish and handle big Trophy Salmon.

The crew here specializes in customized fishing adventures. Your guides are always highly experienced, and they know the local area. They make sure that your fishing trip is top of the heap and that you are having fun the entire time you are fishing.
