Fishing Alaska's Kenai Peninsula is the first and only book to provide detailed information on stream access, timing, tactics, and equipment for fishing one of the world's beautiful backcountry spots. Longtime Alaska resident Atcheson provides information on both fly fishing and conventional spin casting in both fresh and salt water. He covers every style of fishing - from jigging for giant halibut off the coast, to float tubing for grayling and monster rainbow trout on quiet mountain lakes, to pursuing species of salmon that run up the streams of the Kenai Peninsula to spawn.
Dozens of maps, diagrams, and illustrations give crucial details on where to go, how to fish each area, and how to identify the local salmon species. Atcheson also covers the well-known "combat zones" that are so renowned for their large salmon and trout that angler line up shoulder to shoulder in pursuit. In addition he reveals how to find out-of-the-way, peaceful stretches of water where the beauty of Alaskan wilderness can still be enjoyed in solitude.

Snapshots at Statehood: A focus on the communities that became the Kenai Peninsula Borough
This book was a result of several volunteers in a subcommittee in the AK50 on the Kenai Committee led by the Kenai Peninsula Historical Association. AK 50 on the Kenai was organized by the Kenai Peninsula Borough to plan the Kenai Peninsula Borough-wide celebration(s) of the 50th anniversary of Alaska's statehood. Countless contributors from all over the Kenai Peninsula worked on this project and the book is loaded with homesteaders' stories, photos-past and present-and historical data. Printing of this book was made possible by contributions from BP, Icicle Seafoods and the Kenai Peninsula Borough through the AK50 on the Kenai Committee.

Alaska is vast, still mostly roadless and wild, and stunningly beautiful. Alaska is so big- equal in area to about one-fifth of all the lower 48 states- it is difficult to completely cover all of its available hiking in one book. This guide therefore concentrates on the Kenai Peninsula, which has the largest number, greatest concentration, and most diverse range of hiking environments in the state. The Kenai, as it is known locally, is itself huge, containing an ice field larger than the state of Rhode Island. The Kenai offers coastal, forest, subalpine, tundra, and even glacial hiking opportunities. While many of these trails traverse remote and wild country, the trailheads for all 50 hikes covered in this book can be reached by either roads or water taxis. These Kenai hikes are also easily accessible from the cities of Anchorage and Kenai/Soldotna and the towns of Homer and Seward.
The hikes range from an easy 0.5-mile flat walk through boggy lowland meadows to more challenging multiday hikes through mountainous, alpine, and even glacial terrains. Included are several hikes that are appropriate for families with small children, and coastal beach hikes that will delight everyone. Detailed hike descriptions, beautiful photographs, relief maps and explanations of the Kenai's geology and geography make this guide a must-have for your trip.
