Why Do They Come?  They Come For The Salmon Fishing!

People come to Kenai River Drifter’s Lodge for many reasons.  The pristine Alaskan outdoors is always a great factor but by and large, the biggest reason people come to this area is for the fishing—and to be even more specific, they come for the Alaska salmon fishing!

Salmon Fishing In Alaska—It’s All Here

For salmon fishing, the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska is hard to beat.  The reason is simple: the Kenai Peninsula has Native Wild Alaska Salmon in abundance. We believe the great variety, larger fish size, plentifulness and easy accessibility makes it the best place in the world to fish for salmon.

If you want to make the most of salmon fishing in Alaska then Drifters Lodge on the Kenai River has to be on the top of your list.

The Kenai Peninsula, the place Kenai River Drifters Lodge lovingly calls home, is home to major salmon rivers. Perhaps you recognize some of these famous names (and if not, you soon will!):

  • Our home, the Kenai River
  • The Russian River (just down the road)
  • The Kasilof River
  • The Anchor River
  • The Ninilchik River
  • Deep Creek

We operate on all of these rivers at various times of the year to bring you the best Alaskan salmon fishing anywhere; we’re sure you’ll find that there are more fish here than you could ever dream of catching!

Alaska Salmon Fishing Charters At Kenai River Drifters Lodge

Our main attraction in the summer is Alaska salmon fishing (the Kenai River is just so well suited to it!).  We operate our Alaska salmon fishing charters to maximize the area’s resources.  Depending on the time of year, we run these Alaska salmon fishing charters on a near daily basis:

  • Kenai River Salmon Fishing
  • Russian River Salmon Fishing
  • Kasilof River Salmon Fishing

Most years, Six Mile Creek, Anchor River, Ninilchik River, and Deep Creek also have great salmon runs but because our main “Home” rivers are so productive, we reserve the other four rivers primarily for steelhead and trout in the spring and fall.  At the request of our guests, the guides are always ready to fish these rivers.

For those of you out there looking for the best options in Alaska salmon fishing, this is your place. You will not find another lodge that has the ability to combine beautiful natural habitat with skilled fishing charters and a multitude of recreational activities.

Our ultimate goal at Kenai River Drifters Lodge is to provide you with the Alaska salmon fishing experience of a lifetime.  Help us fulfill our goals as we bring you ever closer to yours!  Come and enjoy the best all-around salmon fishing Alaska has to offer.
