Alaskan Chinook King Salmon Fishing Charters
If you are yearning for the prized Alaska Chinook “King” Salmon, our location provides two distinct opportunities to fulfill your dream. The first run is in May and June and the second one is the month of July.
First Run Saltwater Combos
In May and early June, we can intercept the first run of kings in the saltwater of Cook Inlet as they migrate toward their home rivers. This type of trip, known locally as a combo trip, is done by trolling about 2 to 3 hours in conjunction with a halibut trip. The angry fight and arm-numbing strength of a hooked chinook in saltwater will provide memories for a lifetime, and a HUGE mound of bright red salmon fillets.
First and Second Run River Charters
The first run starts into the local rivers about the third week of May and continues in the rivers until the end of June. The best river for this fishing is the Kasilof River, about 23 miles north of Alaskan Angler RV Resort, the perfect place to park your RV or stay in one of our cabins. It is a non-motorized river, meaning only drift boats are permitted. This provides a quiet, serene experience punctuated only by cries of “fish on!”. You will love it. We provide 7 hour professionally guided trips in our drift boats on this river.
July brings the second run of kings, and the loosening of fishing restrictions make both the Kasilof and the Kenai Rivers excellent for king fishing. You have your choice of power boat trips on the Kenai for six hours or drift boats on the Kasilof for seven hours. If you hook one of these monsters you better sit down and strap in because you are in for the fight of your life. You must try it!
