While they are one of Alaska’s most prized game fish, Kings are also one of the most elusive. Our guides have an intimate knowledge of the rivers we fish, and are very experienced with the most suitable methods of catching them so your chances of a successful catch are increased when you fish with us.
We use top of the line gear; however, we know some fishermen and women have a favorite rod or piece of equipment. If you are considering bringing your own gear contact us so we can advise you on the suitability. The Lower Kenai is very big, fast water; the Kasilof River is not as demanding on gear. We drift both rivers, but they each have their unique qualities.
We use several methods to attract the fish to our lines: cured salmon eggs, artificial lures and handmade flies. Steelhead trout are often caught while fishing for King salmon. Steelhead are sea-run Rainbow trout that live in the ocean and return to the river to spawn.
"Perfect weather, perfect fishing partners, perfect guides, perfect float, and our limit caught throughout the week! Now that is a fisherman's dream. All taking place on the Kenai Peninsula. Thanks! Can't wait to do it all over again. Including a 53lb King Salmon."
"Jeremy provided a great experience fishing for Kings in Alaska. Even though the run was not at its peak, we managed fish all three trips (days) with him. He is professional courteous and thoughtful in every way. Great guide, great eggs, great guy."
"Great day on the Kasilof.....brought in the big one - 40lb plus King!"
"The boys of Driftaway Fishing took me out on a great day. I had absolutely no idea how to fish for King Salmon but the Jeremy took care of everything. From Baiting the hook, Showing me how to cast and putting us in the right spot. But the most exciting thing was catching a mighty Alaska King Salmon. the fight was fierce and long. With Jeremy helping all the way. Thanks a lot for the great experience and tasty fish. I could not have done it on my own"
