Tour Overview

* Not offered in 2022*

Depart very early this morning from Cooper Landing for a full-day freshwater fishing charter. Fish the Upper Kenai River for Sockeye (red) Salmon, Dolly Varden or Rainbow Trout, depending on the season. Revel in the ideal fishing platform provided on custom 4-passenger drift boats. On this Alaska fishing charter you can fly-fish both from the shore as well as from a drift boat.

Current catch limit per day is 3 per day for sockeye salmon. Typically there are two sockeye salmon runs per summer which occur mid through end of June and mid July through mid August.

Trout fishing and Dolly Varden fishing is catch & release only. Trout fishing continues to get better in the fall through September 15th.
