Kenai River Guided Fishing

Upper Kenai Half Day Trip

 Our Upper Kenai half day trip is a placid 4 hour float that meanders along the top 7 miles of the Kenai River from the outlet of Kenai Lake downstream to Sportsman’s, across from the confluence with the Russian River.  There are a few sets of small rapids along this trip and the scenery is beautiful.  From the boat we target rainbow trout and dolly varden using both fly and spin methods.  Additionally, during the second run of sockeye salmon in July, we can also include a brief introduction to salmon fishing on this trip.

The Upper Kenai River guided half day fishing trip is our best value and a great fishing trip for families.  It serves as a general introduction to Kenai River fishing and is an excellent trip for beginners.  Also, it is a great trip for anyone that just wants to get dialed in to fishing the area on their own and needs a quick orientation on fishing both the Kenai River and other local waters.

All Upper Kenai River half day fishing trips are private charters- you get the whole boat exclusively for your group.

1-2 guests:  $450 per boat + tax & licenses

3-4 guests:  $600 per boat + tax & licenses

Upper Kenai Full Day Trip

 Our specialty!  This full day trip is an 8 hour adventure anywhere on the entirety of the Upper Kenai River, from the outlet of Kenai Lake downstream to the outlet of Skilak Lake.  We will take your trip goals, the time of season, and local conditions into account to decide which stretch of the 17 mile Upper Kenai River your trip will include.

We have greater flexibility on the full day Upper Kenai River guided fishing trip which allows us to be more species-specific; we can target rainbow trout and dolly varden using fly and spin techniques both from the boat and wading from shore, as well as target salmon species when available.

This trip is great for both beginners and experienced anglers.  We can tailor your trip to your wishes, just let us know what you’d really like to focus your time on.

Kenai River Guided Fishing

Middle Kenai Full Day Trip

We offer an 8 hour full day trip on the Middle Kenai River during August and September to target beautiful trophy rainbow trout.  Our Middle Kenai trip is generally a fly fishing trip, and is an interesting change of scenery from the pristine Upper Kenai as you get to float through private property on the Middle.  The Kenai River below Skilak Lake is not a drift-only area, so motor access is allowed in this fishery.

We recommend the Middle River trip to our experienced anglers for a single day trip and also to our beginners as a second or third trip in a multi-day package.  There is a good chance to hook a fish of a lifetime on this section of river and you want to know how to land it.
