WHAT TO EXPECT

Weather is always a factor when fishing on the Kenai River in Alaska so check the forecast but realize that conditions can change suddenly so be prepared to dress appropriately for many different and varying conditions. You must have rain gear, sunscreen and layered clothing.

There will be ample opportunity for photographs on your Alaskan fishing trip so make sure you have a good camera along that can withstand the elements.

When it comes to Kenai river fishing trout and sockeye salmon opens on June 11. Rainbow trout and Dolly Varden are prolific all year long. Anglers that are seeking world-class trophy rainbow trout should concentrate their efforts during the autumn months.

The sockeye salmon are at peak abundance from mid-July through the first week of August.

Silver salmon fishing is best from the third week of August through the end of October.

Anglers must provide their own fishing license, lunch or snacks and beverages. Arrangements can be made to provide food and drink for additional cost.

The Kenai River fishing guides will provide the boat and all fishing gear. Guides will also clean fish and provide all the necessary expertise for a quality trip tailored to the angler’s needs.

All trips are conducted out of a custom-built 20-foot drift boat. All rods and reels are G.Loomis, Sage, Lamson and Shimano. Anglers are welcome to bring their own rods, reels and tackle if they prefer.

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!
