Fishing The Mouth Of The Kenai River, One of the easiest destinations for Kenai River salmon fishing, can be a very productive spot for the persistent fisherman.
Heading north through the city of Kenai, a left turn on S. Spruce St. will take you past baseball fields on your right (a great place for picnics) and Our Lady Of The Angels Catholic Church on the left and deposit you right on the north side of mile 0 of the mouth of the Kenai River.

With easy parking (assuming there is a space available) and a nice walk on the beach east to the river, this is one of the simplest destinations for salmon fishing in Alaska. Although the crowds can be daunting at the height of the season, early risers and the persistent will usually find success in finding the perfect spot in the sand for staking out their record Alaska King Salmon catching claim.
Veronicas Coffee House
Veronica's Coffee house is located inside one of the oldest buildings in Old Town Kenai. Serving fresh, homemade sandwiches, wraps, soups, and specials, Veronica's is a great place for lunch or dinner.
You’ll find it at 602 Mission Avenue in Old Town Kenai, a convenient walk from your fishing spot.
Beluga Lookout RV Park
There are RV spaces within a reasonable walking distance just up on the bluff (which provide incredible views). Then, it’s just an easy trail walk down to the water and you’re fishing the mouth of the Kenai River! The folks at Beluga Lookout RV Park have reasonable rates, full hook ups, lodge rooms available and even bikes to rent. All that, with great views and within walking distance of great fishing sure makes for an easy, pleasant stay on the Kenai Peninsula.
Located at 929 Mission Ave in Old Town Kenai.
