The pelagic trip, as usual was wonderful! Our day list included Bald Eagles, Black-legged and Red-legged Kittiwakes, Common and Thick-billed Murres, Horned and Tufted Puffins, Double- crested and Pelagic Cormorants, Pigeon Guillemot, Buller's Shearwater, Fork-tailed Storm-petrels, and a variety of gulls. As well, we saw Humpback Whales, Orcas, Mountain Goats and Stellar's Sea Lions!

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I bring


The weather is mild in the summer with temperatures ranging from the upper 40s to the mid 70s. We recommend dressing in layers and encourage guests to bring raingear and comfortable waterproof footwear. 10 miles or 10 minutes can bring about a totally different weather pattern. Don’t forget your camera and sunscreen too! Everything else you need is at your disposal at the lodge, including bank fishing gear and tackle. We have a growing collection of assorted sizes of hip waders and rubber boots for those who want to get up close and personal with the river.


What amenities will I find at the lodge?


Our river front cabins are very new and offer many modern conveniences. Each cabin has a full, well equipped kitchen, satellite TV, and a modern bathroom(s). You have access to the outdoor kitchen, grills, coin-op laundry and wireless internet. Our riverbank walkways offer a comfortable place from which to bank fish using our gear and tackle. We have a fully equipped office at your disposal for your corporate retreat.

Do I need a Fishing License?
If so what do they cost?


Persons 16 and over must have a fishing license. A 1 day license costs $20.00 and if you fish for King salmon you’ll also need a $10.00 king stamp. If you are under 16 you have to have a free harvest record card. We have licensed for sale here at Marlows on the Kenai or you can purchase them online at It can take more than 2 weeks for the license to arrive, most gas stations and most stores sell the licenses here.


What can I do when I’m not Fishing?


The Kenai Peninsula is known as Alaska’s Playground. Birding, photography, wildlife viewing, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, dog sledding on a glacier, shopping, berry picking…. You name it; we can set you up with it!



What is the shopping like?

Soldotna and Seward both have full grocery store options. Anchorage has a Sam’s Club and Costco if you would like to shop on your way down. There are many gift shops and art galleries on both sides of the peninsula.


Are there Restaurants available?

Restaurants are plentiful on both sides of the Peninsula. In Seward you can walk to local restaurants and bars, and in Soldotna and Kenai there are even more dining options within a 30 minute drive. Don’t forget you have a full, well equipped kitchen in your cabin as well as the outdoor kitchen at your disposal. Nothing tastes better than a freshly grilled sockeye you just caught yourself! If you prefer, we also offer a meal option (all breakfasts, lunches and dinners) for our lodge guests.


What kind of boat will I be on?

We use a 20’ Willie Predator riverboat with 4- stroke Yamaha outboard for most of our fishing here on the Kenai River. We also have a 20 foot Willie Drift boat. They both seat 4 fisherpersons and all boats have deluxe seats with back and arm rests. Our Offshore-Saltwater boats vary depending on the number in your party and your specific wishes. Small boat tours are limited to 16 passengers. The longer range trips are on larger boats with up to 50 passengers.
