Soldotna Inn is great and they have a freezer for your fish and good restaurant/bar. Spirit of the Kenai Fishing Adventures with Mike in Soldotna is EXCELLENT - we had a blast with him taking us on his comfortable boat to the best spots then actually teaching us how to catch three different kinds of salmon which we got our limit. We used him the last couple days of July 2016. His home/boat is a mile from the Soldotna Inn. Best of all he told us a lot about the river, animals, and surroundings.

Cooper Landing or Seward. Better hikes on that side of the peninsula, a zip line in Seward, river rafting in Hope, and great fishing in the upper Kenai/Russian river.
