Soldotna Travel Guide: 56 reviews and 70 photos

The Kenai River

Most of the tourists that come to Soldotna are there with one purpose.....Catch Red Salmon and King Salmon!!! There are several spots were you can fish right from the river bank. There are also "Fish Walks" which offer fishing from steel walkways and some of them offer Handicapped access. To land a fish from one of these you will need a landing net though.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great Fishing!!
  • Cons:Lot's of tourists
  • In a nutshell:Great Fishing!!

    I liked the Soldotna mall. there were 2 shops I really liked . One had local art(Originals, prints) and carvings and Alaskan gifts. The other gifts and very nice Victorian items. The other mall was more of a local mall, shoes,clothes,army recruiter etc...

    You've convinced me that I must stay on the Kenai Peninsula when I visit Alaska. It was that Salmonmobile that did it for me. Seriously, I can tell from your pictures the area is beautiful -- I'm excited!

    a most interesting page, but as I see it, a very important aspect was not really mentioned, viz that on the pretext of leading boys to a baseball tournament Scott came here to go fishing, to ride the Big Salmon and to spend 150$ for a fishing net .....
