Golden Eagle Charters offers Halibut Fishing, King Salmon Fishing, Red Salmon Fishing, Silver Salmon Fishing in Cook Inlet, Seward, Homer, and Kenai River Alaska

Cook Inlet Halibut:
The pacific Halibut is one of Alaska's largest game fish. These fish can weigh as much as 400 pounds or more. They are also one of the best eating fish you have ever tasted. The average halibut that is caught is 10 to 13 years old and weighs about 18 to 22 pounds. When you get into a school of these smaller fish it is not uncommon to catch and release 30 to 40 fish per trip.
When fishing for the bigger Halibut it turns into a waiting game and at times only catching 2 or 3 fish an hour. But the size differences all but makes up for the waiting.
 

Fishing on the Kenai River for King Salmon has its rewards!

The Kenai River:
The name speaks for itself. The Kenai River is known around the world for its world record salmon runs, in particular its King Salmon. Each year there are numerous 60 t0 70 pound Kings taken from this beautiful river, and each year bringing yet another tale of the new world record that was lost right at the boat. It is just a matter of time before the BIG one does not get away and a new world record is set. The average King will weigh 30 to 40 pounds. There are 2 runs on the Kenai. The first one lasts until the end of June, and the second one ending at the end of season! Usually July 31st.


The Red or Sockeye Salmon run are considered, by some, to be the best eating of the salmon. These fish will hit the Kenai around the 12th of July and run until about the second week of August. With annual counts as high as 1 million fish migrating up the river, you can see why these fish are so popular. The average Sockeye will weigh about 4 to 10 pounds with the Alaska State record being 16 pounds.

The Kasilof River:
This small river is known for its numbers of King Salmon that come back to spawn each year. With the early part of the season being the best time to fish this river, it is not uncommon when everyone in the boat catches a King. This is a drift boat only river and is a great alternative to the Kenai River. The average Salmon here weighs 15 to 25 pounds with a few 45 to 60 pound fish landed each year.
Silver Salmon:
There are two choices when it comes to Silvers, First, you have the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers. These rivers have a good run of Silver Salmon each year and the Kenai having 2 different runs. The Silvers are known for their jumping and hard fighting as well as how they taste. They are also the hometown favorite. Fishing for Silver in These 2 rivers is very enjoyable and what fishing is all about. These fish will weigh 6 to 12 pounds and the state record is 26 pounds.

Your second choice for Silvers is out of Seward. With some of the most beautiful mountains around and fishing that is fantastic, what more could you ask for. This fishery is more than a salmon fishery, when the weather cooperates you can catch a variety of rockfish, from Halibut and Lingcod to Red Snapper and Black Bass. This is truly a combination fishing trip.
 
 

 

Cook Inlet Clamming:
During minus tides you can go down to the beaches of Cook Inlet and dig Razor Clams. Some of the most popular areas to dig clams are from Clam Gulch to Ninilchik. A limit of clams, after they are cleaned, can fill up a one gallon jar. That is a lot of chowder makin's.

Lodging:
OUR NINILCHIK cabin is only 1.25 miles from the Deep Creek beach boat launch. This deluxe fully equipped cabin will sleep up to 8 people with plenty of room. After a day of Halibut fishing sit back on the front porch and relax while cooking a fresh piece of Halibut on the barbecue located out front.

OUR KENAI RIVER cabins are located on the banks of the world famous Kenai
River. Each one of our four cabins will sleep 4-6 people and come fully
equipped. Step out of your cabin and walk down to the river to meet your
guide. We are just minutes from some of the best fishing holes on the Kenai
River.

Our favorite is a three bedroom one bath house that is within feet of the
water. Set at the kitchen table or on the front porch and watch as the boats
navigate up and down the river. Watch the fish as they roll in the current
while on their way to the spawning beds.
