Remember NO !  guided king salmon fishing on the Kenai River on Sunday or Monday in     May, June or July  

NO !  guided silver salmon  fishing on Mondays in August, September or October 


May - June - July - August - September - October


Salmon Herder Charters mainly books full day charters meeting at 5:30am and starting our fishing at 6am we generally finish up around 3:00pm unless our lucky fisherman have reached their limit. For the location to meet and catch the boat can vary depending what and where we are fishing for so call my cell phone the night before or if coming from a lodge check with the lodge owner or coordinator, my cell number is (907)252-1956 . It is important to show up on time because of the 6am start time for all guided boats on the Kenai River during king salmon season and being the first boat through a good fishing hole can have a big impact on your first king salmon of the day or being the first one out to get a great silver hole in August - October. We will fillet your fish for you if needed or transport them to a fish processor for vacuum sealing and freezing/shipping. Good luck to all anglers and hope to see you this summer ! 


Thank you !
