This Groupon is valid for trips from Tuesday, June 11 through Monday, September 30. Each trip explores a seven-mile stretch of the upper Kenai River, also known as the Upper Upper, beginning at Cooper Landing and finishing at the Sportsman’s Boat Launch.
From June 11 to July 25, this stretch is a catch-and-release for rainbow trout and dolly varden. From July 25 to September 30, anglers will have a better chance to catch salmon, although this stretch of river remains primarily a trout fishery. All fishing gear is provided; visit the FAQ page for a list of other items to bring—among them a valid fishing license.
Salmon Chaser Charters
In the more than 50 years that Tom Corr has spent fishing, he's reeled in his fair share of milestones. In the Kenai Peninsula alone, where Corr has hunted trout since the early 1980s, he’s caught rainbows of up to 15 pounds, silvers of up to 20 pounds, and kings of up to 85 pounds—much heavier than even the local toddlers trying to eat the worms straight from the fishing line.
Today, Tom continues to lead drift-boat fishing adventures up and down Alaska’s rivers as the owner of Salmon Chaser Charters. To carry out regular trips throughout the peninsula's myriad fishing troves, Corr surrounded himself with other exuberant guides, each bringing his own experience and wisdom to luring, catching, and arm-wrestling huge fish into submission. During outings, the guides venture into the scenic waters of the Kasilof River and Kenai River—an area famous for its bustling fish population from August to October.
