Kasilof King Salmon Trips!

Come Experience…

World Class Fishing On the Kenai Peninsula!

Sit back and imagine how this plays out… 5am your alarm clock goes off. You hop up out of bed, get dressed, grab a cup of coffee (or a Red Bull) and you’re out the door to meet your guide. On the short drive there, you banter back and forth about who’s going to catch the biggest, or maybe the most.. maybe you make bets on it. (My dad and I used to do $1 for first, $1 for biggest and $1 for most, of course I always won, but I would let him win once in a while.) You meet your guide at the boat ramp…. load your gear in our 20 foot Willie Boat and you’re off… the start of the Alaska Salmon Fishing Trip you’ve been waiting years for. Who’s going to get the first fish? What are we going to see? How many are we going to catch? The possibilities are endless, and every day is a new adventure!

This is what we live for, and this is why we do what we do. For us, Guiding is our life; we want to see our clients catch their first Salmon, see their first Bald Eagle, maybe float past a 1,000 pound Brown Bear, we want to share all of the things we love about this great place with you! The rest is up to you… give us a call at 907.971.0309 to get your trip booked!

I have lived in Alaska for 8 years, fished with numerous guides, and the crew from RiverRise are at the top of the list! They are experienced, knowledgeable and will put you on fish. We limited out even when other guides around weren't catching anything. Can't wait for next season!!!

World Class Guided Fishing Trips!

Whether you’re looking for Half Day or Full Day, King Salmon or Sockeye Salmon, Morning or Afternoon… we have fully guided fishing trips for just about everyone! Our season begins May 16th and lasts all the way until September 15th. Each fish has its own “season” or run times, but there is generally great fishing all season long and we would love to share our part of Alaska with you!

If you’re looking for a quick rundown on when to book your trip, a simple guideline to follow goes like this:

  • From May 16th – July 31st; you’ll find the big and beautiful (and sometimes very elusive) King Salmon making their trip up river to the spawning grounds! A good Hatchery King Salmon will be in the 18-25 pound range, with several fish every year coming in around 35-40 pounds. Regardless, hook a King Salmon and you’ll be hooked for life!
  • Around the middle of June, Generally while targeting King Salmon, we catch our first chrome bright Sockeye Salmon and we will target them all the way until the end of July! When the Sockeye Salmon are in, THEY ARE IN, and they will provide non stop action all day!
  • Right after the Sockeye Salmon are most of the way up river, the aggressive Kenai Silver Salmon start showing up and take over! They’re big, they’re aggressive and they are delicious! If you’re looking for a fun Silver Salmon Fishing Trip, shoot for any time after August 1st.
  • If chasing what seems to be one of the millions of Salmon in the river isn’t your thing, we have BIG TROPHY RAINBOW TROUT in our Rivers! Kenai River Trout are WORLD FAMOUS, come see why! We chase these big guys, and girls, all the way until September 15th.
