We Launched Our New Website

Jason Lesmeister, owner of Jason’s Guide Service, has 20 years of experience as an Alaskan fishing guide, ten of them on the Kenai River, so he is well qualified to help visiting anglers shorten the necessary learning curve for a successful trip.

He has just launched his new website, www.JasonsGuideService.com.The website was redesigned from the ground up and now contains helpful information about the fish to be found in the Kenai River, the best season for each, and the services and equipment Lesmeister offers.

When asked about the upgraded website, Lesmeister said, “I love everything about our new web presence. It’s going to allow me to provide more detailed information about the gear we use and what we are catching day in and day out. I will also be updating my blog on the website on a regular basis so you can read up on our guests’ adventures.”

Rainbow trout and Dolly Varden appeal to fishermen because they bite readily, put up an aggressive fight, and are plentiful all year. Red (sockeye) salmon, silver (coho) and other salmon species migrate up the Kenai River at certain times. Sockeye salmon peak from mid-July through the first week in August. Silver salmon fishing is best from the third week of August through the end of October.

Lesmeister’s Kenai River guiding service provides all the equipment you might need, including custom built 20 foot drift boats, G. Loomis, Sage, Lamson and Shimano rods and reels, and all tackle and baits. They will also clean fish and offer other expertise necessary for a quality trip.

Ice fishing the Kenai and surrounding lakes is also outstanding and Jason’s Guide Service is one of the few serious organizations serving this type of fishing and implement the latest technology to locate the fish and keep you warm on the ice.

Jason is headquartered in Cooper Landing, Alaska, and covers the entire Kenai River resource – Kenai, Soldotna, Sterling, Skilak Lake, Kenai Lake, and the Cooper Landing Area. Fishermen are encouraged to bring their cameras so they can post photos of their catch with the others on the website’s “Braggin’ Board”. It is a good idea to make reservations for prime seasons as far in advance as possible.

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.

Jasons Guide Service is in a class of his own! Not even kidding. Dont bother with the other guys. I already have so I'll save you some time and money. Jason knows this river system like the back of his hand and will get you on the fish more times than not. He is a wealth of knowledge

To echo the other reviewer on here, he was right. Jason is straight Legendary! I booked Jason based on that guys review alone and it paid off. Not only did we catch fish but I learned so much from Jason. I've fished with other guides that barely tell you anything and try to keep the secrets to themselves it seems like.

Fished with a couple other guiding companies in Alaska and Jason is pretty dang awesome! Booked a full day with him for me and my two boys and we caught lots of fish, made memories, and took awesome pics and video. Glad we took our road trip through Cooper Landing and found Jason!

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!!
