The use of a powerboat for fishing on the Kenai River is hands down the most effective way to have a chance at more and bigger fish.
With a 50-horsepower engine on the back of the boat, running multiple drifts through a hole can be done in no time.
The powerboat is an effective vessel for catching Alaska salmon and trout, as well as being a nice ride in adverse weather and wind.
With the ability to motor quickly up the river, we can hit that sweet fishing spot over and over and cover a lot of area in a short time. Many of our guests find the excitement and thrill of powerboat fishing irresistible. There is no need to shuttle our guests since we can put in and take out at the same spot.
Alaska drift boat fishing is a relaxing and unforgettable experience.
There is nothing quite like drifting serenely down the Kasilof River enjoying beauty that some people never see in a lifetime.
For those who want to enjoy the peace, quiet and beauty of the river, Drift Away has 20-foot drift boats for the more serene fishing trip. Rest assured, no excitement is lost in this fishing experience!
The sound of the river swirling past the boat, the chattering of an eagle in a nearby tree, and the line stripping off your reel are the pleasant sounds you will hear while drift fishing on the Kasilof River.
