Halibut, kings and sockeye, through away the dolly varden. Best trip ever to the Kenai river and down south to the cook inlet

Avoid I81. VDOT should have to drive this horrific corridor everyday. Forget scenery/ all you have is truck traffic that imperils your life. Delays , accidents happen daily. Stay on Route 11 or any other route except this one.

Although there was no tour- we were able to get out and watch the salmon. There were hundreds of them and once or twice they were trying to fly up the rapids.
