“Jim Rusk Fishing” offers guided trips on Alaska’s famous Kenai River! With over 30 years of experience in these waters, Captain Jim Rusk can easily call himself an expert in hooking Salmon and Rainbows. After you experience the thrill of hooking into one of these epic fish, you’ll realize there’s nothing like it!

Hop aboard Capt. Jim’s 20’ Willie aluminum fishing boat. She’s the ideal choice for up to 4 anglers and gets you to the good spots fast, thanks to twin 50 HP Mercury engines. She features all the necessary safety equipment and has enough fishing space for you to get your hands dirty going after your trophy.

The Kenai is well-known for its incredible Salmon fishery and you’ll go after everything from King Salmon to Silver, Coho, and Sockeye! These trips take place from May through to September, with peak season hitting in July. In the spring and fall, add delicious Rainbow Trout to the mix and now you’ve got a true Alaska fishing adventure on your hands!

All the gear you need to successfully spin, troll, drift fish, and jig already awaits on board. Capt. Jim even brings along fly fishing gear if you’re up for a challenge! Any catch you choose to keep is cleaned and filleted at the end of the trip for easy transport home.

For Captain Jim, fishing isn’t just a pastime, it’s something that gives him precious memories that will never fade. Join him and see why!

Miembro desde Marzo 2017
I was born in Soldotna Alaska in 1966, to parents who have homesteaded in Alaska since 1953. As a young boy, I spent my summers fishing on the banks of the Kenai River and became an avid fisherman at a very young age. When I was a teen, I often worked in the summers as a bait boy on some of the first charter boats in this area. By the time I graduated from high school and was old enough to get my guide license, I knew that was what I wanted to do. In 1987 I started Jim Rusk Fishing. As a fisherman, I enjoy all types of fishing and will always use whatever technique I feel is best to give my customers the best chance at success.
