Fishing with Kenai Jim's Lodge

Guests of the Lodge can choose between saltwater fishing or freshwater fishing. For Pacific Halibut, guests board either a 28 or 32-foot charter boat that hold upwards of six people. The lodge targets Pacific Halibut near Ninilchik, Alaska, which is about a 40-mile boat ride from the lodge.

For freshwater fishing, King Salmon are normally the main attraction. King Salmon or Chinook Salmon run from May through July and are the largest of the Pacific Salmon. Sockeye Salmon run from mid-June through the end of July and are one of the most abundant salmon that enter the Kenya River. Silver Salmon or Coho Salmon run from August through September. Though smaller than King Salmon, Silver Salmon are known for their fight. Pink Salmon show up in August but only in even-numbered years. Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden are fished on June through October.

McKinney a river is world-famous for fishing and as you can see, there're a lot of fishing opportunities here. Kenai Jim's Lodge makes an excellent base and guide for all of your fishing needs along the Kenai River.
