Powerboat and Drift Boat Fishing

POWERBOAT FISHING
on the Kenai River

For Reds, Silvers & Rainbow Trout

Red Stars

The use of a powerboat for Fishing on the Kenai River is hands down the most effective way to have a chance at more fish 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 & Trout. As well as being a much nicer 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.
