Our 2004 model boats are 20 footers custom fabricated for the Kenai River, safety and our client’s comfort. We use 4 stroke Yamaha T-50 motors, which are noted for reliability. Abu Garcia reels are mounted on Berkley Air IM7 poles for strength and reliability.
All guests must supply their own waders and wading shoes, hip boots, and rain gear. If a guest wants to fly fish from the river banks below the lodge; they will have to supply their own fly fishing gear.
Just a short note to let you know that you provided me with an unforgettable experience while staying at the American Anglers Fishng Lodge in Soldotna, Alaska. The accommodations, staff, and guides really helped to make my trip an enjoyable experience. I was able to catch a large number of salmon just below the lodge. A lot of action and never a dull moment.
The highlight of my trip was with my guide Craig Rang. I caught a 38 lb. King Salmon. I have never had a fish fight so hard. I highly recommend your lodge and staff.
Hope to see you again.
Thanks for one of the most memorable fishing experiences in my life. The accommodations, hospitality, care for the customer, and fishing far exceeded my expectations. Your knowledge of the Kenai River and how to fish it were the contributing factor to my success at catchng the largest fish of my life. We never did weigh the fish but going off of your experience we guessed it to be about 35 lbs. Ever heard the saying "The first liar doesn't stand a chance?" Since you guessed the weight to be around 35 lbs., that would make you the first liar. I'd say it weighed more than that; exactly how much more, I'm not saying. You'll just have to wait and hear me tell the story.
I'm hoping to bring either one or both of my sons up there sometime and let him experience the rush of catching a salmon. I have caught silvers and they too are a lot of fun with all of their dancing and showing off but this King was truly an experience of a lifetime. You might say I'm "hooked" (pun intended). In the event we do get back up there, I will most definitely be booking the trip with you at AAA American Angler in Alaska.
