Silver Salmon Fishing

Silver salmon fishing on the Kenai River and the Kasilof, the silver salmon don't get any bigger and fishing doesn't get any better!  Soldotna B&B Lodge and Alaska Fishing Charters can be your next destination for a silver salmon fishing tour or vacation. Soldotna B&B Lodge and Alaska Fishing Charters is located directly on the Kenai River.  Our lodge has over 300 feet of private River frontage with a private dock for launching our Silver salmon fishing tours.  We also offer silver salmon fishing tours in drift boats on the Kasilof River. Silver salmon fishing tours can last from 6 hours to 12 hours long.  As part of all of our tours, Soldotna B&B Lodge and Alaska Fishing Charters provides only professional, experienced guides.  All bait and tackle is included.  Also, filleting, vacuum packing, and freezing of your salmon caught on your tour is also included.  Soldotna B&B Lodge and Alaska Fishing Charters also includes complementary use of rain gear and hip boots as necessary for our tours.


There are several techniques used to catch silver salmon and most guides specialize in one method but will often use more than one technique if necessary.  The four most popular techniques are: back-bouncing (basically, bottom fishing) hooks baited with salmon eggs, back-trolling banana shaped plugs (Qwikfish) baited with herring or without, back-trolling Spin-n-Glo lures (basically, a propeller which spins in the current connected to a hook) baited with salmon eggs, and spin casting large spinners such as Vibrax. The technique not only depends upon the guide, it also depends upon: water conditions, tidal conditions, location on the River, time of day, etc.

Fly-fishing is also an excellent option for Silver salmon, the upper Kenai famous for its trout fly-fishing, is also an excellent area for silver salmon fly fishing sight casting.


Coinciding with the silver salmon run, there is also an excellent native run of steelhead on the Kasilof River.  The steelhead are caught using much the same methods as for silver salmon and King salmon.  Steelhead of up to 15-20 pounds have been caught.

There are two different whole-day silver salmon combination charters.  One combines awesome silver salmon fishing with Trophy rainbow trout fishing on the Kenai River.  The second combines awesome silver salmon fishing with steelhead fishing on the Kasilof River.  Both of these are whole-day float trips combining excellent fishing with awesome scenery and wildlife viewing potential.
