Figuring Out Your Accommodations

It looked like the Taj Mahal on the web site, but when I got there it had morphed into a cockroach infested flophouse with two neighboring roosters and six barking dogs on chains next door.

What you need to know is what accommodations fit you best. Do you want a kitchen to cook your own meals, or will you be dining out for every meal. Do you want water front or are you looking for an economical option. Is this a base camp where you will be venturing out every day and just need a bed and a shower, or do you want deluxe accommodations where you might wish to spend some time utilizing the amenities. You’re needs will dictate your shelter so knowing what your parameters are before doing the research will not only get you the best deal possible, but put you in the perfect location for your plans.

To be right in the middle of all that is happening on the Kenai Peninsula, I chose Cooper Landing as my base of operations. This incredibly beautiful town, that is nestled where the Kenai River begins and the mountains cascade down to the valley floor, allows me quick access to the Kenai River, the perfect ocean habitat for halibut and rockfish and lakes to recreate on.

I have researched every possible lodging facility from Homer to Seward and I can attest to many well-run operations on the Kenai Peninsula. I can also confirm there are many that I wouldn’t recommend with good conscience. This is why I would recommend that once you know what your program consists of, call your guide.

The guide you are working with is going to understand how to help you schedule your lodging needs to fit the logistics of your trip. It’s that simple. Once you know what you want, ask for some recommendations to get you what you need.

If you come to Alaska, or if you live in Alaska and want to enjoy some quality time on the Kenai River and actually CATCH some fish, Jason's Guide Service can get you there.
I have fished the Kenai on my own, but I've never caught fish like I did on a charter with Jason's. Caleb was our guide and he was professional, thourgh, patient and an excellent teacher of all things fish. Did I mention we caught some HUGE FISH? The trip was epic, and we will definitely be back for more!

We had two great drift fishing trips down the Kenai River with Jason. He was straightforward about the probability of catching species based on all conditions and left the choice of adventure up to us. He demonstrated a depth of knowledge about the river, fish and wildlife behavior and lots of other questions about Alaska! You can tell that he loves and is an expert in what he does and where he lives. We had a great time catching rainbow trout, Dolly Varden char, and a King salmon watched by bald eagles lining the banks. Also loved seeing spawning Sockeye and the bull moose at the boat landing! We will definitely book with Jason again on our next trip to Alaska.

Caleb had us on the Trout even when they were a little hard to find! Always handy with a new lure or spot to try when things ran cold and we were right back on em. Great guide, great fishing. Don’t hesitate to book. Thanks so much!

Had a great time with my dad. Caleb was our guide and he was fantastic. Easy going and very knowledgeable when it came to the river, specific fish, where to fish, and how to fish. Absolutely recommend, wish we could have done a full day trip!

We live in Anchorage and have our own drift boat but still choose to fish with Jason or Caleb when hiring a guide on the upper or middle Kenai river. I always learn something from them! Highly recommended!
