This fishing report will be updated when additional information is available. For current seasonal information, please contact the Soldotna office at (907) 262-9368.

Local Lakes

  • A new lake was added to the Kenai Peninsula Lake stocking program. Be sure to try ice fishing at John Hedberg Lake in North Kenai. Information and directions to the lake can be found on the ADF&G Alaska Lakes Database webpage.
  • There are plenty of other local-stocked lakes that provide a nice, quiet winter fishing opportunity in the Soldotna, Kenai, Kasilof, Cooper Landing, and Moose Pass areas.
  • Ice fishing for rainbow trout, Arctic char, and land-locked salmon is good to excellent. Try fishing Johnson, Sport, Scout, Elephant (Spirit), Island, or Swanson River Road lakes.
  • Visit the ADF&G Alaska Lakes Database to view Kenai Peninsula Stocked Lakes Series Brochures that provide directions, stocking information, bathymetric maps, catch, harvest, and effort information.
