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.

Great Cooper Landing fishing guide with lots of good fishing holes on the river. He knows the good spots and more times than not will get your pole bending. Bring a camera too because there will be lots of good stuff to capture.

Launched out of Cooper Landing on the Kenai and had a blast. Took tons of great pictures and video and most importantly caught some fish. Honestly, just being out there in nature on the river was worth the price of admission. You can't get that kind of vibe sitting indoors.

Amazing ice fishing on the Kenai! Jason knows the spots and scouts quite a bit. He puts in the hard work so he can get you on the fish. Trip of a lifetime and I'm sure i'll be back next year sometime. Bent rods!!

Love fishing in Alaska. Really loved fishing with Jason on the Kenai. Amazing sights, great fishing, and good company. Pricing was comparable to other guides and I learned a lot I can take back home and try my luck solo.
