Welcome to Jason’s Guide Service

Jason’s Guide Service provides professionally guided fishing trips on the Kenai River for trophy rainbow trout, dolly varden, and sockeye and silver salmon.

The Kenai River is a complex system and the fishery can take many years to comprehend. If you’re looking for the top Kenai River fishing guides, Jason Lesmeister, owner of Jason’s Guide Service, is an excellent choice for your fishing experience.

The Kenai River in Alaska is the BEST in the world for fly fishing for rainbow trout, and Kenai River fly fishing is best done with a Kenai River guide. Salmon fishing on the Kenai River is also amazing because the salmon runs start in June and run through the end of October.

There are many options when it comes to Alaskan fishing adventures, but there are none better than a rainbow trout or salmon fishing adventure with Jason’s Guide Service where the fish don’t start biting until you get there.

Ice fishing in Alaska is also an option during Winter months with a professional Cooper Landing fishing guide like Jason’s Guide Service. Rainbow trout, lake trout, and dolly varden are all species that can be caught through the ice in Alaska. Please call for specific details regarding ice fishing as conditions change constantly.

Jason’s Guide Service’s headquarters are located in Cooper Landing, AK but we fish the entire Kenai River resource from Kenai, Soldotna, Sterling, Skilak Lake, Kenai Lake, and the Cooper Landing area.

We Catch Fish

The rainbow trout is appealing to fish for because they readily bite and put up an aggressive fight! The Kenai River rainbow trout are known for their massive size and plentiful numbers. The Kenai River rainbow trout is one of the most sought after fish in Kenai, Alaska and anglers appreciate a fly fishing guide to make their Alaskan fishing adventure complete. Kenai River guides are also well versed in all forms of trout and salmon fishing using every type of rod/reel combination.

Red (sockeye) salmon, silver (coho) salmon, and other salmon species are all migrating up the Kenai River in Alaska at certain periods during the season. Find out when the “run” is on for salmon fishing or when the Kenai rainbow trout are biting and book an Alaskan fishing trip with Jason’s Guide Service.

All gear is provided for anglers to catch some of the hardest fighting and best eating fish that live in Alaska. While many fish make the run up the river to spawn, it takes a certain skill to locate the perfect spot and use the right technique to ensure success.

Fishing on the Kenai River at it's finest pretty much sums it up. I hired Jason to get me on a monster rainbow trout and he did not let me down! I understand it doesn't always work out this well but I'm thankful for the opportunity and his willingness to explain certain things to me. Thanks Jason and I'll be back!!

Jason is the best fishing guide in the Cooper Landing area bar none. I have fished with 4 local guides, including Jason, on the Kenai river over the last few years and none compare to Jason. He actually took the time to teach and explain certain things and I believe that's why I was able to land my personal best rainbow trout.

I had an outstanding time! Jason took the time to show how to cast and present. As a result I caught a lot of fish! Like he said, "make a rainbow catch a rainbow". He wanted me catch fish as much as I did.

I travel to Anchorage at least once a year due to work. Next time, I will definitely hire Jason for his services and you should too!

Jason is a really amazing guide. He took his time to show us all of the necessary steps and explain everything along the way. Jason is not only very knowledgable about fishing and the river, he's a fun person to be around and exciting to talk to. He really wants everyone who comes along to have a great time and catch as much fish as possible. Jason was also very quick to share any knowledge he has to give us the tools to continue exploring fishing as a great hobby. We're already looking into coming back to Alaska and booking Jason's services again!
