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.

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

Best guided trout fishing on the kenai river. I've used 3 different charters and Jasons is the best. We caught lots of fish and the sights were amazing. Memories for life and bent rods all day!!

Jason is a fishing god in the Cooper Landing AK area. You can go to the gas station and mention his name and people know who you're talking about. Do what I did and book Jason now for this upcoming season. You will thank me later.

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!!
