By Mike Hopley, Alaska Fishing Guide,

Some brief background on myself and fishing business.  I've been fishing for 45 years, the first 20 years in Washington St. in the San Juan Islands.  The past 25 years have been here on the Kenai Penisula from the Kenai River, Cook Inlet and Seward, Alaska.  I started my fishing business, Alaskan Adventure Charters in 1990.  I will have just completed my 21st year in the fishing charter business.  I built my fishing business around good customer service with the customer's positive experience being my number one priority.

I fish for Kenai River King salmon, Kenai River Silver salmon, Cook Inlet King salmon, halibut and Seward Silver salmon.  I begin my fishing season the first part of May offering combination King salmon/ halibut charters on Cook Inlet out of Deep Creek from May 1st through June 7th.  I begin fishing the Kenai River for King salmon in June & July.  I move to Seward, Alaska on August 1st through August 25th where I charter for Silver salmon.  I then finish my season fishing on the Kenai River the month of September for Silver salmon.

You can view a picture of my saltwater boat which I use for halibut fishing and Seward Silver salmon fishing on the front page of my website at:  I take a maximum of 6 clients per trip on my halibut trips and Seward Silver salmon trips.

You can also see a picture of my Kenai River boat on my website on the 2010 fishing photo gallery.  Picture # 4 and picture #5. I take a maximum of 4 clients per trip on my Kenai River boat.
