Kenai & Kasilof River Fishing Guides - Meet Our Guide Staff

Click on the photo below to learn more about each of our Kasilof and Kenai River fishing guides

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 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.

Kenai Peninsula Guided Fishing

At Alaska Boat Rental & Guide Service, we’re proud to have some of the finest guides around. Professional, courteous, patient, and ready to show you why we enjoy every single day in Alaska – all summer long. 

Alaska Boat Rental & Guide Service is located in the heart of some of the best salmon, trout, and halibut fishing anywhere in the world. We couldn’t feel more fortunate to spend our summers here and to call this place home. In addition to our boat and equipment rentals, we specialize in fishing for trophy king salmon (Chinook), red salmon (sockeye), silver salmon (coho), rainbow trout, Dolly Varden, and huge Pacific halibut.

We fish all 82 miles of the Kenai River and All 17 miles of the Kasilof River for king salmon, silver salmon, sockeye salmon, resident rainbow trout, arctic char, and steelhead. Along with that, it’s impossible to estimate the number of square miles of Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay we fish each summer.

We take great pride in providing the most professional experience possible. We hope to show you why we love it so much.
