AND NOW, WHAT YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR – here is some information about our incredible fishing!

Our beautiful property and cabin is strategically located in the heart of Alaska’s premier summer playground, the “Kenai Peninsula” - 120 miles south of Anchorage (this is where the major airport is located). You have easy road access to the ocean, numerous rivers, lakes, and tourist destinations. We can be your base of operations and provide our many years of experience to help guide you to the best fishing and vacation activities for your desired time of visit.

It is important to note that specific fishing opportunities vary from month to month. We can help customize your visit to make your Alaska adventure successful and one to remember. We have many years of fishing and outdoor excursion experience and can organize a lodging and fishing package to match the dates of your visit. You may book your guided fishing directly through Eagle Head for 3 species of Salmon, Rainbow Trout, and Halibut as well as fly outs for remote area fishing and bear viewing. Our prices are very competitive because of the volume of fishing that we do and we use local guides who know where the fish are.

There are many additional side excursions that may interest you (see list below). Just let us know your interests and we can direct you to these providers.
- Whale and Marine Mammal Viewing
- Bird Viewing
- Sea Kayaking & Canoeing
- Clamming
- Horse back riding
- Helicopter sight seeing
- Hiking and Eco tours
- Golfing
- Various spa packages

Lodging and fishing packages are required for the peak season of July 1 thru August 7th. Fishing on site may continue to be productive well into August. May, June, August, and September still have very good area fishing with local and fly out charter operators. Check out the following seasonal information for the specific fish species: Your fishing in Alaska is date sensitive.

Halibut ---------------------May 1 - September 30
Saltwater Kings-----------May 1 – June 30
Kenai Kings--------------- May 1 – July 31
Sockeye Salmon-----------June 10 – August 20
Silver Salmon--------------August 15 – October 31
Pink Salmon----------------August 15 – October 31
Rainbow Trout-------------June 15 – October 31

Note: The Kenai River fishing for trout and Silver salmon in September and October can only be described as outstanding and better. The crowds are gone and the wildlife viewing for moose and bear while floating this magnificent river are above average. There are several river guides providing full day float charters for this outstanding fishing and viewing. A good camera is a must have item. The fall colors are starting to surface making your stay very pleasant and rewarding.

It is our goal to make your visit to Alaska the best experience of your life. You will be visiting one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, and we are proud to help you in any way we can.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: My wife and I moved our family to Alaska in 1990 to realize the dream of residing in the "Last Frontier". Raising our children while doing what we love - outdoor activities such as fishing, camping, boating and other wilderness activities - in our spare time was amazing. In the summers we would head out in our little red Zodiak inflatable boat and camp and fish along the Alaska coast. My career took us away from Alaska for a time, but now that we are retiring and our children are raised, we are beyond thrilled to be back where we belong - on the Kenai Peninsula. With years of fishing and excursion experience and a deep love for all things Alaska, my family and our amazing on-site property managers Ron and Denise, can help make your Alaska vacation dreams come true. We are committed to giving you the experience of a lifetime.

Why the Owner Chose Sterling, AK, USA:
We have over 200 feet of river frontage with some of the best fishing in all of Alaska. We are right in the middle of the Kenai Peninsula, this location gives access to the best outdoor excursions with only a short driving distance. Every trip to Homer or Seward is an adventure in itself as the drive is breathtaking and you regularly see wildlife in the beautiful wilderness setting.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You will not find a nicer cabin on the Kenai River and the view is beautiful. In addition it is amazing to watch the eagles fish the river daily and return to their huge nests in the immediate area. Many times we experience Moose swimming across the river, sometimes with their new calves. During the summer we also see brown and black bear in the area. Every day is an adventure. It is simply one of the very best lodging and excursion opportunities in Alaska.
