Fishing & Floating Alaska's Kenai Peninsula
Fresh Water & Salt Water Trips
The entire Kenai Peninsula has a remarkable selection of fresh water and salt water fish to pick from. Mountain Lake Meadows Subdivision has land for sale right in the heart of this area. Miles of salt water shoreline with countless bays and natural harbors serve to give shelter and beauty for the countless fishing charters that are available for locals and visiting anglers.
Those that come just for photography won’t be disappointed. World class Halibut fishing commonly yield fish over 200lb. Kachemak Bay, Anchor Point and the Seldovia areas are great fishing opportunities for salt water salmon and halibut fishing.
The picturesque town of Homer hosts the annual “Spring King” Derby that is one of the local highlights for fun, prizes and great fishing. These are known locally as the “White King” and makes for one of the most sought after “black skillet, Crisco, corn floured, fried, finger-lickin'” salmon steaks you could wish for.
Shrimp and crab pots are also popular to “set out” while you enjoy the fishing & beauty of this fun and fabulous area of Alaska. Shore birds are everywhere and very much a part of this spring extravaganza.
World Record Fishing & Viewing
The World record King salmon, 97lb. 4oz, was caught right here in the Kenai River near Soldotna. Mountain Lake Meadows is only 3 miles from the beautiful Kenai River. The Red Salmon, known locally as Sockeye, make their annual run in July. Fisherman come from all over the country to harvest this excellent Wild Alaskan delicacy and process their catches on site.
Many take their fish to local commercial plants for processing and shipping home. Others have their own “processing equipment” and recipes. Fresh salmon is then “put-up” in cans, jars or freezer bags for their later winter use. Some process their fish in their own “special brine” for smoking. Shortly, they fire up their “smoke houses” mounted on their motorhome or pick-up truck bumper.
The “locals” have their own smoke house “backyard creation.” No two are alike! However, one thing is for sure, in a few hours they all will have a mouthwatering treat for enjoyment by family and friends and tell tales of stories of the ones that “got away.”
Yup, I love it. This is definitely Alaska stuff..!!

Rainbow trout fishing is in the category of unbelievable…! Fishing charters are available all over the river system. The “upper Kenai River” in Cooper Landing is something to behold in beauty and fishing. The “Kenai river canyon” is also a great float trip.

Alaskan Wild Rivers
Freshwater streams, rivers and lakes cover the Kenai Peninsula in a never ending web of majesty and beauty. They seem to connect to each other in a never ending aquifer of wild mountain waterfalls, lakes and glacier fed streams that eventually make up our great rivers like the Kenai, Kasilof, Ninilchik, Anchor and Deep Creek.
Mountain Lake Meadows Subdivisionis a short distance from the great fishing associated with these rivers. The rivers seem to silently travel this Peninsula to the coast where they drain into the world famous Cook Inlet. Eagles keep watch and nest with their young high above the banks of these rivers. Salmon and Steel head trout reverse this direction once a year to travel this unbelievable route of unequaled beauty. Nature somehow points and sets the compass for each of these species to guarantee arrival to their respective mountain spawning area year after year. When the spring thaw comes, the process starts all over again.
