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.

Jason is truly Amazing!! He took my wife and I out for the trip of a Lifetime! Fishing was great and he was extremely helpful to my wife who was brand new to fly fishing. We felt well taken care of, safe, and prepared. We hope you enjoy your Idaho wine Jason! Cheers!

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 trip with Jason was awesome! We caught a good amount of fish and we learned a lot from Jason. Great guy with vast knowledge of the river and different water ways. Will be back for sure and highly recommend.

I've been fortunate to have had the opportunity to go on several fishing excursions in my life. But nothing has ever compared to my time with Jason. Jason's respect and love for nature is above anything I've experienced and it left me with such a different appreciation when hunting/fishing. The best of the best right here.

Love fishing with Jason. Just found out he got a special permit to fish the UPPER KENAI RIVER for this year so I'll be back!!! Real fishermen know the significance of that! It's the most coveted stretch of the river and only a handful of guides have access. Cant wait!!!
