Kenai River Trout Fishing
Premier Trout Fishing on the Kenai River
This outfitter is one of the first trout focused outfitters on the Kenai River.
The Kenai River is long time know for being one of the finest trout rivers in Alaska. Its glacial blue waters are unlike any other in Alaska. The river flows for roughly 80 miles to Cook Inlet. Despite being along the road system and gaining more pressure than some of the more remote rivers of western Alaska, The Kenai River continues to produce some of the largest rainbow trout anywhere in Alaska! Offering day trips for rainbow trout on the upper, refuge, canyon, and middle Kenai River.
Each year rainbows over the 30″ mark and up to 15lbs are caught, but don’t expect a fish of this size. They are some of the hardest fighting rainbows anywhere! Hooking a mega sized rainbow on the Kenai is one thing but landing it is another!
Also Offering Walk-and-Wade Fishing on the Russian River and Quartz Creek
The Russian can be a great dry fly fishery for trout and dolly varden also move up the river in the fall to feed on salmon eggs. Quartz Creek is lights out in mid august for dolly varden and a few big trout are around as well as they move in to feed on sockeye salmon eggs.
This trip is primarily for trout fishing, but there are opportunities for sockeye and silvers during the right time of the year. (silvers fishing may be done with a spin rod)
