“Jason’s Guide Service is the top ice fishing guide on the Kenai Peninsula throughout Kenai and Cooper Landing, AK!” – Jerry M.
When the Alaskan salmon fishing is over, try ice fishing the lakes on the Kenai Peninsula just once and you’ll be coming back for more! The days of sitting on a bucket on the ice and praying for fish to swim by and bite your bait while freezing your butt off are long gone.
The lakes of the Kenai Peninsula are full of stocked rainbow trout, Dolly Varden char, and lake trout. We bring an aggressive approach to finding and catching these fish. We fish both stocked and wild fish all winter long. We have a catch and release policy for all wild rainbow trout.
If you want to keep rainbow trout, we will keep fish that are caught on all lakes where fish are stocked. The lakes we fish are on the scenic Kenai Peninsula and they are an under used resource which allows for some great winter fishing opportunities.
When ice fishing with Jason’s Guide Service you will be fishing with the industry’s finest gear:
- Clam Outdoors Portable Ice Houses
- State of the the art Vexilar Electronics (fish finder)
- Underwater Cameras,
- Mr. Buddy Heaters to stay warm
- World’s best Ice Fishing rods, reels, and tackle available
We bring state of the art technology and good old fashioned know-how to the lakes every time we hit the ice. We fish comfortably and aggressively, whether you want to sit in the warm ice house with the under water camera watching the fish bite your lures, or drill lots of holes over good structure and cover lots of area using Vexilar fish finders to target and catch fish.
If you want a relaxing ice fishing trip in a warm ice house, or a day fishing aggressively from hole to hole finding the moving schools of trout and char that roam the lakes chasing baitfish, we have the trip for you.
Jason’s Guide Service will tailor your guided ice fishing trip to your wants and needs.
Feel free to call us in advance with your questions or for more up to date details on ice fishing conditions.

Jason’s tour was awesome; hands down I would recommend him if you are looking to do some salmon fishing while in Alaska - whether you are an experienced fisherman or not! We are definitely not experienced; we came to Cooper Landing with our 11 and 13 year old sons on our first trip to Alaska and thought it would be fun to try and catch some “wild caught sockeye salmon” since we love eating it at home. We told Jason we had no idea what we were doing and to give us a “city slicker” tour :) He was super friendly and accommodating - he had the waders and waterproof boots, top-notch equipment, a very nice and comfortable boat; and was very conscientious about keeping all of us safe and making sure we had an awesome time.
He obviously is a talented guide and fisherman, but was so helpful and willing to patiently teach us the basics that we needed to know to get the most out of our 4-hour tour. Out of pure luck (not skill) we caught a huge sockeye which we enjoyed for dinner tonight (amazing!!). He even gutted and filleted the fish for us right on the spot so we could take it back to our cabin ready to eat! But even if we wouldn’t have caught that fish it was a fantastic experience that I would highly recommend. Just the ride on Jason’s boat on the Kenai river was super enjoyable and beautiful; he knew everything about the area and pointed out so many fantastic elements of the wildlife and surrounding environment that really made us and our kids appreciate the entire experience.
A+++ - call Jason if you are looking for any kind of half day or full day Alaskan wilderness adventure; this guy has been doing this for 26 years and is an absolute PRO.

Jason was a spectacular guide! Has tremendous knowledge of the Kenai River landscape. We caught 6 sockeye with his guidance. Great experience!

Better late than never! I had the luxury of Jason guiding me for a day of fly fishing. Fortunately for me, the other party was a no show, so I had the trip to myself. Oh, did I mention that I have never fly fished ever? Jason was EXTREMELY patient and within no time, I was catching fish. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and even if I hadn't caught a fish, it would have been money well spent. Seriously, if you get the chance, take a tour with him... you will not regret it.

My son really wanted to fish on our trip to Alaska and not being a fisherman myself, I figured the best option was a guide. Not only did Jason accommodate our last minute scheduling, but he ensured we had a great time, caught the fish, and best of all, made memories that will last a lifetime. ps. Even this "non-fisherman" caught a few! Highly recommend Jason to anyone.
