water salmon fisheries in Alaska. Rivers and lakes are also teaming with
Arctic char, resident and sea-run dolly varden and trophy rainbow trout.

charter, the Kenai Peninsula is a fisherman's paradise. Fishing is excellent
year round, including winter, when an angler can ice fish for salmon or trout
on a peninsula lake.
