Overview

We provide high quality fresh and saltwater guided fishing. We are a family owned and operated business. We live on the Kenai River and guide the river year round. We provide specialized wildlife viewing and birding adventures. We rent a 6 bedroom/4 bath Kenai River house to large groups for a very reasonable price and we have several cabins on separate river lots that we rent to visitors. We discount military, teachers, and Alaskan residents. We love what we do and we feel privileged to get to share this amazing place with our guest!

Rueben, I am interested in a fishing adventure for my grandson and myself. He will be 12 years old entering middle school. We feel that this is the age we have our last hook on him . Years to follow, he will not be excited about being with grandma and grandpa. We want this to be an exciting experience fishing for Halibut or if you think the chances would be better with Salmon OK, but he is really set on Halibut. I am not sure of all the logistics , but we will arrive in Anchorage July 2nd with the intention of going to your area for the fishing experience. Please, are we going to the right place for the Halibut ? For us this is a one time giant financial venture. I want him to experienced catching several halibut, is this realistic ? Provide me with ideas the lodging for three ,two nights, Halibut fee, freezing the catch to send home,and anything you can share. This is a one time shot with our oldest grandchild, with three more to follow. Ed, as well as your reviews have you almost walking on water, really looking forward to meeting you and Mindy. As per our phone conversation, I will call you or you will call me ( I forgot already ) around 5-5;30 Monday. Stan Canaris 610-929-1533
