Couple's Trip

Cooper Landing Fishing guides provided an amazing experience for my son and I. They were extemely patient with my son teaching him about all aspects of fishing. They are also just great to be around for a day on the water. We plan to book our annual 7 day fishing trip with them each summer as well. Highly recommmend.

My family and I did a fishing trip with Dave and Jackie in late May and had an amazing time! We caught King and Sockeye Salmon on the Kasilof River. Dave and Jackie were so accommodating to our group and made the entire trip so fun! The boat was a great size and they had all the equipment we needed. Dave taught us everything we needed to know to reel in the fish! I recommend Cooper Landing Fishing Guide for anyone looking for a fun and beautiful fishing trip in Alaska!

My wife and I fished with Dave for 2 full days, on different parts of the Kenai River. We caught so many BIG fish, we stopped counting. Dave is by far the best guide we have ever had the pleasure to fish with. His expert knowledge of the fishery, is beyond words! He and Jackie are running a first class operation. I highly recommend them to anyone, that would like and need a perfect fishing, floating adventure. We will be back!

Multi-Day Couples Trip

Took my father out for an all day trip on the upper Kenai for his 67th b-day. We had a great time, our gear was top notch and our guide Dave knew right where the fish were. We were on the trout from the moment we dropped our lines in the water till the end of the day...Thanks again Dave!

Father and Son

My wife and I fished kings with Dave on the Kasilof and had a great time. I've fished with several guides on the Kenai Peninsula rivers over many years and Dave ranks right at the top. His easy going attitude coupled with his lack of ego that most guides tend to have made for a very enjoyable trip and I look forward to fishing with him in the future.

Couple's Trip
The cost of a guided Kenai or Kasilof River fishing trip just about covers everything you'll need for your fishing adventure. We provide all the fishing equipment, waders, wading boots, flies, tackle, bait  and rods for your fishing trip. We cover guide parking fees, boat launch fees,  we bring snacks, coffee, tea, hot chocolate and all necessary safety equipment. The only thing the cost of your guided fishing tripdoesn't cover is gratuities, your parking fees at Alaska State Parks parking lots, a fishing license and lunches.
Guided fishing trips start and end at various times. Some start times depend on how much daylight we have. During the long summer months, it is not uncommon to start fishing trips at 4 or 5 am! Later in the fall fishing season, we start our guided fishing trips later and later as sunrise occurs later. Full day fishing trips last for up to 8 hours, while half day fishing trips are usually 4 hours long. Prior to the start of your fishing trip (usually the night before you go fishing), your guide will call you to schedule a meeting time and location. We also offer free pick-up and drop-off services, unless it is otherwise inconvenient. Directions to popular meeting locations are available on our website.
We provide most everything you will need to ensure your guided fishing trip with Cooper Landing Fishing Guide, LLC is as exceptional as possible!  The only thing we do not provide is a valid Alaska Department of Fish & Game Sport Fishing License, which may be purchased ahead of time online via their website and printed off, or purchased locally at many different retailers.  Please note that licenses are not valid unless signed and must be physically present--electronic versions of your license are not permitted!  Additionally, if you are on a guided fishing trip for King salmon, you will need to purchase a King salmon stamp when you purchase your fishing license!  

We do offer several snack and beverage options while onboard your guided fishing trip, such as chips, granola bars, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, but you may wish to bring something more substantial, particularly on full-day guided trips that run about 8 hours.  There will be several opportunities to stop and eat, if you choose or as we are transitioning the boat from one area to another.    

You are more than welcome to bring your own equipment (waders, fly rods, etc..); however, be sure that your wading boots do not have felt soles as they are not legal in Alaska.
Your guide will handle the initial processing of your fish on your guided trip. We will fillet and bag your fish and store them at a suitable temperature while on your fishing trip. We do not vacuum seal nor do we freeze fish for clients. We can recommend local fish processing services if you wish to have your fish processed further after your guided fishing trip.
Absolutely. Kids are such an important part of the work we do at Cooper Landing Fishing Guide, LLC. We take education and resource stewardship very seriously and what better group than kids to share this knowledge and love for the outdoors with. Yes, bring your kids and let's have a blast on your guided fishing trip! They will learn fishing skills that will carry them through a lifelong sport filled with awesome memories!
Your guided fishing trip will last for 4 hours on a half day trip and for 8 hours on a full day trip. Keep in mind that there is some set-up and commute time that is usually not factored into the stated hours of your trip, so a guided fishing trip can be a long day. If you need to end early, please let us know ahead of time so we can make appropriate accommodations. Sometimes, due to the sheer length of the stretch of river we are floating, it is impossible to end a trip on short notice. Also, if you are fishing with other guests not in your fishing party, we may have to make arrangements that are suitable for everyone in the boat.
One of the most rewarding parts of being a fishing guide is the learning process for our guests. We love to teach, so whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, we take the time to teach as much or as little as you need. If you are fly fishing on your guided trip, have no fear, it's a lot easier than you think! You truly will learn a sport that can become a lifelong passion!
