If fishing is your fancy, Kenai Lake feeds the world famous upper Kenai River and Russian River confluence, known for its world record counts of Sockeye (Red) Salmon. In late summer, Silver Salmon are exciting to fish among the many spawning Sockeye. If salmon doesn’t interest you, the upper Kenai River is known for its awesome Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden. These fish are a challenge, but so much fun to catch in the crystal clear waters of the river.
If hiking and wildlife viewing is more your interest, there are many trails to choose from. In the late summer, you can hike to the Russian River Falls to watch the salmon jump the falls to reach their spawning grounds. The Resurrection Pass Trail is also a very popular hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding trail. If you’re an avid hiker, you can go for the ultimate adventure from the trailhead in Cooper Landing to the small community of Hope, some 36 miles. Along the trail is 6 Forest Service cabins (at intervals) and reservations are required.
Only 45 minutes away in Seward Alaska, is the amazing fisheries of Resurrection Bay. Charter a boat for the day and catch Halibut, Ling Cod, and in late summer, Silver Salmon. Seward is home to the Silver Salmon Derby in late summer. Seward is also home to an up-close and personal experience with a glacier. Exit Glacier, is located right outside Seward, a short hike to the glacier for an experience you won’t forget and the coldest water you’ve ever felt. The Sea Life Center is also another excellent place to take the kids, see and experience the wonders of the Alaskan waters.
Whether you want an awesome fishing trip with your buddies or a family vacation enjoying the outdoors, a trip to Alaska will be a “reel” vacation we guarantee you won't forget!
