Kenai River
One of Alaska's quintessential experiences: fishing for salmon. Whether you're a first-timer or an expert fisher person, casting a line into the Kenai River will provide plenty of delight. And, fingers crossed, plenty of salmon too. Fishing the Kenai takes some knowhow and, because the glacial river runs chilly, good gear. Local guides (and there are plenty of 'em) can help you with both. Prepare to get up early for the experience. Many river guides like to claim their spot on the river before the sun is even up (and, during summer months, the sun comes up early). Fishing limits change annually and you'll need a fishing license; your guide can provide information on both. The fish will ruin you for most supermarket salmon for the rest of your life but, so be it, you can always return to Alaska for another round of catch and chow down.
