If there’s a single fish Alaska is known for, it’s the Chinook or “King” salmon. If you’re dreaming of fishing Alaska, this is probably the fish you have in mind. The first spot that comes to mind for King Salmon is the Kenai River. Although salmon fisheries have struggled in recent years, there are big ones still to be had on the Kenai River. If you’d rather spend more time fishing and less time fighting with crowds, let Motes Mountain Adventures guide you to the less known honey holes that still hold kings. Expert guide, Nathanael Motes will coach you on, local fishing techniques, and help you land the fish of your dreams.

Are you someone who’s never fished before? A serious angler wanting a week of bent rods? A casual caster after a day of reeling on your own? No matter what your interest, let Captain Motes take you on your fishing adventure of a lifetime. Feel the thrill of world-class salmon and trout fish­ing on Alaska’s Kenai Penin­su­la with Nathanael Motes, an expe­ri­enced, pas­sion­ate guide.

There’s nothing Nate enjoys more than sharing the river with young anglers. He greatly appreciate spending time teaching the youth how to enjoy and respect the great outdoors. His low pressure guiding philosophy translates into a relaxed group of confident anglers. No matter what age or skill level all are welcome aboard.
