MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I get to Kenai Riverbend Resort?
All of our clients fly into Anchorage Alaska.  From Anchorage they rent a vehicle and make the 3-hour drive to Soldotna.  The drive is very beautiful and full of scenery.  It is also a very easy drive.  Some of our clients prefer to fly into Kenai and then rent a vehicle in Kenai.  The Kenai airport is just minutes from the resort.  Ask about special airfares and rental car rents when you call, we work out some great rates for our clients!

Since you only serve a continental breakfast what do I do for Lunch and Dinner?
All cabins have cooking facilities and barbeque grills.  Many of our clients eat breakfast at the lodge, pack a snack for lunch and then go into either Soldotna or Kenai for a nice sit down meal.  Both Soldotna and Kenai have 24-hour grocery stores like Fred Meyer and Safeway.  Restaurants are everywhere and very inexpensive, our local diner serves meals for an average of $10.00 per plate.  Prices are very reasonable!

What is the summer weather like? 
Our summers are beautiful, our typical day begins with morning temperatures in the 40s and daytime highs get up to high 70s.  Rain and clouds are possible at anytime but usually do no last long.  We do not have many bugs!

How much daylight do we have in the summer?
From May to the end of August we have an average of 19 hours a day of sunlight.  Rising at 4:00 am and setting at 11:00 pm.  Plenty of time and daylight to do all the things you want while on your fishing vacation!

How much are Alaska Fishing Licenses?
The lodge sells fishing licenses so do not worry.  License fees for non-residents are 1-day - $20.00, 3-day - $35.00, 7-day - $55.00, and 14-day - $80.00.  If you are fishing for King Salmon you also need a King Salmon Stamp, which are sold in the same increments and prices as the licenses.  For example a 7-day fishing license with a 7-day King Stamp will cost you $85.00.  This license covers you for all types of fishing (fresh and salt). 

What is provided on Fishing Charters?
Kenai Riverbend Resort provides all of our guided clients with boats, G-Loomis Rods, Shimano-Penn-Okuma Reels, baits, instruction, and the best guides in Alaska.  Everything is provided just bring yourself!

How big are the boats and how many fish per boat?
Our Kenai River boats are 20 Willie Predator riverboats with 4- stroke Honda outboards.  They fish 4 anglers and all boats have deluxe seats with backs and arm rests.  Our Offshore-Saltwater boats are 33 Hatco Offshore Cruisers.  They come equipped with state of the art electronics, twin 225 Honda outboards, marine bathroom, heated cabins and a huge deck for our 6 anglers aboard along with the captain and deckhand.

How long are the Trips?
Most of our trips are 6 - 10 hours. Saltwater trips start at all times of the day due to tidal movements therefore some trips may start at 5:00 am or 2:00 pm it all depends on the tide for that day.  All-day fishing trips are 10 hours.  

How big are the fish?
Alaska is known for our gigantic fish.  Expect King Salmon from 25-80 pounds, Silver Salmon from 8-20 pounds, Sockeye Salmon from 6-15 pounds, and Pink Salmon from 4-12 pounds.  Our Pacific Halibut average 25-50 pounds with many over 100 and some into the 200-pound class. Ling Cod to 60 pounds and many 5-10 pound rockfish.  Our expert guides will instruct each client with all the techniques and secrets of getting these huge fish in. 

How do I get my fish home? 
Most packages include one box (50 pounds) of processing.  We fillet, vacuum pack, freeze and box your catch for the trip home.  Extra boxes are $65.00.  Most of our clients take their fish back as checked baggage on the airlines.  Your fish will stay frozen in our boxes for up to 24 hours.  Remember to pack light, to take fish back home with you and cut freight costs.  We can also ship Fed Ex if you prefer. 

What clothes should I bring?
Pack Light!  Dress is very informal in Alaska.  You could wear the same jeans and shirt for a week and nobody would look at you differently.  We recommend jeans, sweatshirts, tennis shoes and knee-high boots and rain gear.  Dressing in layers is the way to go and remember you can always take clothes off
