We are located on the middle river section of the Kenai River which is the portion from the mouth of Skilak Lake to about 5 miles below the confluence of the Moose River and the Kenai River and is known to hold trophy size Rainbow Trout as well as tremendous salmon fishing. Trophy rainbows of 30 inches or more are not uncommon in this area during the peak season. The Middle Kenai River also offers anglers the opportunity to fish for the 1 million plus second run of Sockeye Salmon during July and the first part of August before they reach the Upper Kenai River. The best King Salmon (Chinook) fishing in this portion of the Kenai River is the last 3 weeks of July, although some seasoned local anglers will swear that the really big kings arrive in mid-June as part of the early king run. The king salmon run in the Kasilof river starts earlier in June. For more information, see our website "The Kenai River Cabins at Sterling".
