Book Now Shipping Fish - Fish with Jason's Guide Service

Shipping Fish

There is nothing as mouth watering as the smell of a wild caught salmon as it sits in a layer of sizzling oil. There’s nothing that gets the stomach rumbling like a big slab of wild caught salmon sitting over a bed of charcoal. It’s one of the main reasons anglers from all over the world come to Alaska. We have great salmon runs.

A question I get all the time is, how do I get my fresh Kenai River salmon home?

When you fish with Jason’s Guide Service we fillet any salmon you catch and keep.  After your day on the water we will direct you to a reputable fish processor who will vacuum pack your fish for you.  Once you have your fish packaged you have the option of paying the processor to freeze and store your fish, or you can bring them to where ever you are staying.

After you have packaged and frozen fish the best two options for transporting home is shipping through FedEx or bringing it home as luggage.  The FedEx option is great for people who are on the front end of their vacation and don’t want to travel with fish.  The luggage option is my favorite because it costs a lot less.

How much it costs exactly to ship salmon by Fed Ex, varies depending on weight.  The cost of bringing it home as luggage depends on what airline you fly and how many checked bags you have.  With a couple phone calls you should be able to come up with a ball park estimate of cost and budget it into your trip.

Once you get your fish home the only logistic left is making sure you don’t let the secret out that you have some Kenai River salmon on the menu or you may discover you have loads of close friends and neighbors who will just happen to arrive at your door around dinner time.

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!
