4 Fishermen per boat
The famous Sockeye Salmon aka Red Salmon follow the shoreline of the glacier fed rivers just out of eye sight in about 2 to 3 foot of water. The Reds don’t seem to get aggravated much at lures as they enter into the freshwater river. We fish for the reds from the shore because of the way these fish handle themselves. This looks like us jumping on our 21’ Willie Classic boat and finding a sandbar only accessed by boat to wade in the water.
We aim for about knee deep water (we provide waiters), and jump out of the boat for the day. The fishing side of the reds is a little more work then the Kings or Silver since we are actually standing in the water and casting throughout the day. The limit is 3 per person and if we get enough fish up the river they will up the limit to 6 per person.
Monday - Saturday
Kenai River Boat Launch
Hundreds of thousands of Red Salmon return to the Kasilof River every year. It’s an experience of a lifetime to drift down the Kasilof River with it’s glacier fed water in our 20’ Willie Drift Boat. You will get a chance to try your hand at landing a Sockeye which also happens to be the richest tasting Salmon out there.
