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….the man, the myth, the legend. We did two days with Jason and one with Caleb. All spectacular. They put us on the fish, took care of all the details and told some great stories. We had some laughs, saw some beautiful country and took home 36lbs of fish! These guys are very knowledgeable of the area and will hone your fishing skills at whatever level you are at. Stop researching “the other guys” and just book em! You can thank me later….

Jason was such a fantastic guide and teacher. First time fly fishing and he was the perfect teacher. Patient, kind, funny, but not afraid to let you know when you are in your own head and to just cast it and have fun. It was such a thrill to catch some fish and a highlight of my vacation. Would go to Jason again in a heartbeat!

Had the best time fishing with Jason. He knew exactly where to go to put us on the fish, and i feel like we laughed the entire time. If ever in the area I 100% recommend this guide service. Even if you don't catch, it is still a BEAUTIFUL river!

We had the best time with Jason and his team on our fishing trip! We did a half day with Caleb and a full day with Jason and left with over 40 pounds of salmon. Both Jason and Caleb were friendly, knowledgeable about the best spots on the river, and were great teachers on fishing technique that made it easy for all skill levels. Highly recommend Jason and his team for your next Alaskan fishing adventure!!
