The Kenai Riverbend Resort offers both freshwater and saltwater fishing adventures. The lodge sits on the Kenai River and provides easy access to Cook Inlet for saltwater fishing - Halibut, King Salmon, and Silver Salmon. Plus, you have easy access to the Lower Kenai River and plenty of opportunities to fly-out to some of the special Alaskan rivers that do not see a lot of fishing action.

Guests stay in luxury at either the main lodge or in out-cabins. Cabins hold up to six guests and offer a kitchen, private baths, TV, sitting areas, and vaulted ceilings. The lodge offers seven guest rooms with log beds and room furnishing. There is a dining room that serves both as a spot for meals and as a place for corporate meetings.

Fishing with the Kenai Riverbend Resort

King Salmon run from 30-80 pounds and guests can fish for these large fish in Salt or freshwater. Expect to fish with top gear such as Loomis rods and Shimano reels with top gear set up to handle big fish. The Sockeye Salmon show up in massive numbers and guests can literally catch 100 Sockeye a day. August is the time to target Silver Salmon in the Lower Kenai River. Silvers weigh between 10-20 pounds, but they fight like a 50-pound fish. Halibut are common in the 25-50 pound range with plenty of opportunities to battle 200- and 300-pound fish. Other fishing targets include 30-inch rainbows, and gigantic bottom fish like Ling Cod.

If you want access to big fish, this is a good place to try.
