King of the River- Kenai

Capt. Dean Schlehofer Kenai, AK Incorporated Licensed Insured

King of the River- Kenai and Captain Dean Schlehofer will take you away from the crowds and into some of the most productive trophy fishing waters in the state – all amid the Kenai’s dazzling mountain scenery. 

 

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.

 

You will be hopping aboard a 20’ Bay Boat with a 50HP Yamaha engine. This vessel is outfitted with a GPS, fish finder, and a radar. USCG approved safety gear including a CPR trained crew are also equipped.
