Fishing with Pete's Fishing & Guide Service

Guests of the lodge have access to King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Coho Salmon, Pink Salmon (on the even numbered years) Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, and Halibut. The Kenai River is where the current Alaska record King Salmon was caught. It weighed in at 126 pounds, which gives you an idea of what King Salmon Fishing is like on the Kenai.

For King Salmon, the best time is May, June or July. They start to congregate near Cook Inlet in May and then head up the rivers. You can target them either via saltwater fishing or freshwater fishing. May is also a good time to target Dolly Varden in the rivers or Halibut in the salty bays and deeper water. In June, the Red Salmon (Sockeye) begin their run that lasts through August. The Red Salmon run is impressive as millions of fish enter the rivers. June is also a good month for Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden and Halibut. By the first part of June, the Rainbow Trout are swimming with King Salmon. Their run lasts through September. The Dolly Varden are good targets May-September. The best month to visit is July where you have access to Red, King, Rainbows, and Dolly Varden. In August, the true sports fish show up; the Silver Salmon. They run from August through September.
