Alaska Boat Rental & Fishing Guide Service

Alaska Boat Rental and Guide Service has some of the most successful and experienced Kenai River fishing guides and Kasilof River fishing guides on the river. We fish all 82 miles of the Kenai River and all 17 miles of the Kasilof River for Trophy King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, and Trophy Rainbow Trout.

But  We Do A Lot More Than Just Boat Rentals & Guided Fishing!

Kenai & Kasilof River Fishing Guides - Meet Our Guide Staff

World Class Guided Fishing

We have some of the most accomplished fishing guides on the Kenai Peninsula. Kevin Chavira, Hunter Nash, Jim Voss, Nick Garret, & Creig Garrett have been fishing the Kenai River, Kasilof River, Russian River, and the entire Kenai Peninsula watershed for years. These are professional, courteous, sportsmen who are passionate about what they do and can’t wait to share it with you. At Alaska Boat Rental & Guide Service we don’t hire “one and done seasonal guides.” We hire guides that will be with us for many years and that exhibit a passion for outdoor sportsmanship, professional attitude, unwavering ethics, and a well-rounded education.

 

Each one of them has been with us for years and we feel so fortunate that they’ll be with us for many years to come.  Many are lifelong Alaskans whose families have been fishing these waters and living the Alaska life for generations. We’re extremely proud to have Nick’s son Creig joining us in 2021. While 2021 may have been his first year professionally guiding, Creig has been fishing the Kenai River with his dad since before he could walk.
