Welcome to our Soldotna Alaska Online

Located at the intersection of the Sterling and Kenai Spur highways on the Kenai Peninsula and born when both roads were completed in the 1940s, Soldotna is a hub for fisherman near and far and why?: the Kenai River runs through it.

Each fishing season, draws thousands of residents and visitors alike into Soldotna on a quest for famous Kenai River salmon. In fact, the world’s largest king salmon was caught from the waters of the Kenai River in 1985 and the 97.2-pound trophy now hangs on the wall of the Soldotna Visitor Information Center. Biologists believe genetics and the fact that Kenai River salmon often spend an extra year at sea account for their gargantuan size. A trophy salmon elsewhere in Alaska is a 50-pound fish, while here, anglers don't get too excited until a king salmon tops 75 pounds.


All this makes Soldotna the most fish-crazy place in Alaska during the summer and the fastest growing city on the Kenai Peninsula with a population of just more than 4,000 residents. Soldotna is a full-service community and well set up for the wave of anglers who flock here from mid-May through September for the runs of red, silver and especially the king salmon in the lower Kenai River.

Soldotna was incorporated in 1967. It has since become the retail, governmental and medical hub of the Kenai Peninsula. The following headquarters and state offices are located in Soldotna.

> Department of Highways
> Department of Public Safety
> Fish and Game Department
> Forest, Land and Water Management

Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna serves the Soldotna and Kenai areas. Soldotna is also headquarters for the Kenai Peninsula Borough School Distract. The University of Alaska-Kenai Peninsula College is also located in Soldotna.
