Winter gives fishing guides a chance to reset and look forward to the upcoming season. Our season is short, a fast and furious flurry of activity that seems to end as quickly as it begins!
Knowing that the last cast is the end of your day on the water, can sometimes make us more aware of what our fly is doing. It makes us fish it all the way through the run. We concentrate on the perfect placement, the perfect drift, the perfect swing or the perfect "twitch." And to me, that's the key: concentration and fishing a fly "perfectly."
Want to fish in Alaska and travel from honey hole to honey hole at your own pace? Renting a motor home might be the best way to do just that. You’ll never have to scramble to find a hotel room, a lodge or a VRBO (especially considering the often higher summer rates). You’ll always have a comfortable roof over your head and a vehicle to get you around.
KING SALMON FISHING ON THE KENAI PENINSULA
The largest of the Pacific Salmon, the Chinook or King Salmon can be found on the Kenai Peninsula. When I say largest, I mean the absolute biggest fish in the world roam our waters. The world record Chinook was caught out of the waters of the Kenai River back in 1985 and weighed an astonishing 97 lbs 4 ozs.!
Within a short driving distance from Anchorage, on your way to and from the Kenai Peninsula where Cooper Landing Fishing Guide, LLC is located, there are lots of adventures that await. Many of our guests ask about things to do on their vacations and we thought we'd put together a photo essay to display all the amazing experiences Alaska has to offer.

Fly anglers are grateful to Brad Pitt and A River Runs Through It for promoting the sport; however, very little "movie quality" skill is necessary when taking up fly fishing for the first time.
