At Jim Rusk Fishing we use only top quality, proven fishing equipment.  Fishing the Kenai River and the Kasilof River demands the use of High Quality Boats.
Fishing the Kenai River and the Kasilof River demands the very best fishing equipment.  At Jim Rusk Fishing
We spare no expense to ensure you fish  and with the very best!

First we use Willie Boats. They are hand crafted fishing machines.
We have both a 20ft power Boat and a 20ft drift boat each are Willie’s of course.
These boats are very wide stable and roomy and very nice to fish out of.
They are each nicely equipped with Bentley seats for each angler,

Plenty of dry storage, diamond plate floors, and just all the bells
and whistle’s an angler would want. Yamaha four stroke outboards are our chosen power.

In addition to top of the line boats we also use top notch fishing tackle. Our rod of choice is Lamiglass.  I have been using Lamiglas since 1987 and they are, in my opinion, the the best rods you can buy. We use Shimano fishing reels and once again I just think they are the best.

So when you come to Alaska to fish with “Jim Rusk Fishing”, rest assured you will be fishing  with one of the most experienced fishing guides on the Kenai Peninsula and you’ll be fishing with the best fishing equipment on the best boats.

Did we mention that Jim was born in Alaska and has fished the Kenai River and the Kasilof River since he was a boy.  He’s been guiding international anglers on the Kenai Peninsula rivers since 1987.
