Alaska Fishing CHarters

With Jim Rusk Fishing

Welcome to Alaska. And our little fishing town of Soldotna, Alaska . Here you can fish for some of the millions of salmon returning to spawn in the Kenai Peninsula rivers and streams each summer. Or take advantage of the world class Trout fishery that we have here on the Kenai.

May, June & July

King Salmon

A typical King weighs 20-50 pounds. The Lower Kenai is well known for its run and the size of its King Salmon.

 June, July & August

Sockeye Salmon

Red Salmon are the premier salmon for eating, canning and smoking. They also provide one of our most unique fishing experiences.

 August, September & Qctober

Silver Salmon

Silver Salmon runs begin in early August and continue to October. Silver Salmon are especially fun to catch.

All Summer

Dolly Varden & Rainbow Trout

On the Kenai River you will find some fantastic Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden fishing.   Also in the spring we target Lake Trout and in the fall Rainbow Trout and Arctic Char on some of the local lakes.

Sample Fishing Report

Welcome to this years first 2013 fishing report for the Alaska Kenai and Kasilof Rivers. I’m happy to report that the fishing season has begun here in Alaska. This week I fished three days on the Kasilof River and it was great to be back on the River and although the fishing was slow we were able to catch a few nice Kings as well as some sea run dolly varden, I look for the fishing to steadily improve with each passing day and by next week should be having some good catches of King Salmon.
