hmmm it's a very *flexible* place i guess. The time of departure was confirmed one day before. And somehow i thought the day trip for silver salmon charter is deep ocean trip. Guess not. Basically we only spent 5 hours on two spots on the river, and the spots are just sorta part of the resort. But it costs 220...

No matter how hard they try, you can't catch when there are no fish in the Kenia River. Upper Kenia was closed and they just opened lower Kenia the day we got there. From what we saw....or didn't see...very, very few are catching fish. The Russian River "combat fishing" grounds were bare. Every year, the numbers are diminishing. I realize...

My sister and I went up to RW's. Our guide Nate was the best. We were a bit early for the first run of Kings. But that is why it is called fishing not catching. But we still brought in two Kings and had the best time in the boat. Nate not only meet us with a smile he kept...

We visited in mid-August for silvers. We were not disappointed! Though we did not limit out every day, we enjoyed every day. We had great guides. They are knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice large kitchen, full size fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc. The staff are friendly and helpful. It was great to have someone...

RW is the place you want to be to fish, he has the best set up and guides in the area. Large rooms with everything you need. Full size fridge and stove, can sleep five easy but you could go up to seven without a problem other than there is only one bathroom. You could save a lot just by...

We all would like to come home with a trophy fish, but it is serious work. It took us 18 hrs. of fishing to get our two beautiful kings, several years ago. This trip, we got skunked a few days, but still were able to catch silvers. Fishing is not a sure thing, but the guides give 100% effort on...

We are at RW's Fish Camp and went out with them yesterday fishing for silvers. There were two boats that went out on the Kenai with four people fishing on each boat . . . one boat came back with 9 and ours with only 2. (The personal limit was 3 per day.) I personally felt that our guide was...

We did not stay at the Big Eddy Resort, but went out for a half-day salmon charter on the river. We had a great experience and would definitely return again. The only reason I did not give this a 5-star is because when we originally called and set up the charter, we were told over the phone, "Just show up...

In any relationship, personal or business communication is paramount, and sometimes there is a breakdown in communications. For that we appoligize, but we are also happy to hear that your experience with us was a good one. Tight Lines.

We are sorry the river did not meet your expectations. The Kenai River is one of the most challanging rivers in the world, that is the reason why it has always been such a popular and rewarding fishery. We have always worked with our customers to exceed their expectations, but the one thing that has to be kept in mind,...
