Humpy Creek offers a unique opportunity to get across to the Kachemak Bay State Park.  We take a water taxi from the Homer Boat Harbor, 45 min. across Kachemak Bay, where we can catch King Salmon, Chum Salmon, Dolly Varden, and maybe see a black bear on our trip.  Hip boots or chest waders are required for this trip, which we can provide if you don’t have your own.  This is a Full Day guided river bank fishing trip, because of having to plan the time according to the tides for drop off and pick-up.

Full Day  $325 per person

(6 hours)  Water taxi and State Park Fee included.


Trips located in the Cooper Landing Area:

Upper Kenai River

                   We normally meet in Cooper Landing and drive down to the fishing trails.  We consider this a Full Day (6 hours of fishing with the             guide).  On occasion we will float down in a raft for better river bank fishing away from the crowds.

Quarts Creek
