The Kenai River is famous worldwide for its fishing. Fishing in the Kenai may yield rainbow trout and Dolly Varden as long as thirty inches. If you’re really lucky, you might even break the 1985 king salmon record of 97 pounds (caught, of course, in the Kenai).
In order to fully experience the majestic Kenai River and all it has to offer, it’s a wise idea to invest in a fishing vacation package. Plenty of resorts on the Kenai offer fishing and lodging packages. Getting you and your family a fishing vacation package will earn you such perks as:
- Luxury log cabins, which are usually equipped with their own kitchen and grill;
- Expert fishing guides with a lifetime of experience, who will show you the hotspots for king salmon fishing;
- Some vacation lodges offer activities such as bear watching for those less inclined for fishing trips;
- Live out of state and wondering how you’re going to get your prize catch home? Many lodges will package, freeze, and ship your fish for you.
Salmon fishing tours on the Kenai are a great way to bond with family. Of the 55 million Americans who go on fishing trips annually, 10 million of those are kids. Getting a fishing vacation package is a great way to show your kids not only the ins and outs of river fishing techniques, but also the beauty and tranquility of cabin life.
Depending on where you are, fishing is a sport that relies largely on luck. Instead of casting a line and crossing your fingers at the beach or local lake, consider investigating all the fishing vacation packages the Kenai River has to offer. Fishing vacation packages can be pricey, but the memories you make will be worth every penny.
