Thank you for choosing Jammin' Salmon Alaska Vacation Rental and Kenai River Fishing on the Kenai Peninsula
Welcome to Alaska's Playground, the Kenai Peninsula! Our cabins are located 3 miles off of the Sterling Highway, approximately 5 miles from Sterling, Alaska. Although there are multiple public access areas to fish, you will enjoy your own private fishing dock right on the most captivating river you will ever experience.
At 82 miles long, the Kenai River, starting from the Sargeant Glacier Fields, flows west to the Cook inlet. The 1.4 million acre watershed is home to four species of Pacific Salmon, including the largest of the king salmon. The glacier runoff gives the Kenai River a milky, emerald - green color. The river supports 37 species of fish including world class rainbow trout. The Kenai River is also home to 100 kinds of birds, including 21 species of waterfowl. The area supports populations of black and brown bears, wolves, lynx, bald eagles, caribou and moose.
Located at Kenai River mile 41, we are literally right in the middle of this awesome spectacle. Only the longtime residents along the river, and those who run the river frequently, are aware of it's secrets. Prized bank fishing frontage, so predominantly successful for catching red salmon, silver salmon, rainbow trout and dolly varden trout, is only a short walk from your lodging accommodations.
