Best fishing on the Kenai

Kasilof River

Early Morning Fishing

Kenai River

The Kenai River need not be introduced – it’s one of the most famous rivers on the planet! Located just 10 minutes from A Hiada-way, the Kenai offers a variety of fish species and ways to catch them. You can bank fish from the middle of town in Soldotna, or you can try to catch your limit with a licensed guide. Fishing guides are abundant on the Peninsula, so let Carole know if you’re looking for a good one and she will get you connected with the best.

The tournament, hosted by the city of Seward and the Armed Services YMCA, gave more than 200 military anglers stationed in Alaska a free day of halibut fishing to thank them for their service.

Homer & Ninilchik Halibut Fishing

A Hiada-way is located just 30 minutes from Ninilchik and 60 miles from Homer – the halibut capital of the world! Set out on a halibut day trip from one of these spots and the odds are that you’ll come back with something to show for it. Both locations offer numerous guides and services to book with, and Carole is always happy to help you sort through your options and plan a great halibut trip!

Seward Halibut

Seward Halibut & Salmon Fishing

Seward is about 2 hours from A Hiada-way and is well worth the trip for the scenery alone. But once you get there, halibut and salmon fishing in Resurrection Bay is a must! Seward has a busy harbor with numerous fishing outfitters and day trip options to choose from. Be sure to let Carole know if you need Seward fishing recommendations!

Russian River

Cooper Landing & Russian River Fishing

Cooper Landing is an angler’s paradise and about a hour and change from A Hiada-way. The Upper Kenai River winds through the small mountain town, offering fishing opportunities for rainbow trout and Dolly Varden. The Russian River is one of the most popular rivers in Southcentral Alaska for a reason – anglers find ¬†Sockeye, Coho, Rainbow Trout, and Dolly Varden swarming in these waters!
