The Kasilof River is an excellent fishery with a variety of fish to chase from late spring through early fall. King of the River- Kasilof and Captain Dean Schlehofer will give you a fishing trip on the Kasilof River that will not disappoint!

 

Dean Schlehofer is the owner and operator of King of the River- Kenai and King of the River- Kasilof. He has been fishing the Kenai River since 1986. Growing up in Connecticut, he often saw magazines writing about giant King Salmon in the Kenai. His dream was to one day go to Alaska and catch one of those Kings. In 1981 he and his family moved to Alaska. He later bought his first boat and later landed an 80 lbs. King Salmon. His dream of landing a trophy King had come true. He has been hooked ever since. Since starting his guide service, Captain Dean has guided thousands of clients. His greatest thrill is seeing the look on his clients face when they pull in their first Salmon.
