Upper Kenai River Guided Fishing Trip (Kenai Lake to Sportsman’s 9 miles)

Species: Rainbows, Dolly Varden, Sockeye Salmon, and Coho Salmon. This is our backyard and we spend most of our time fishing this section of the river as it is beautiful, relaxing and full of great fighting Rainbows and Dolly Varden. When the salmon are running through here, we will often target both Sockeye and Silver on a full day trip to add to the variety of the outing. Rainbows in excess of 21″ are taken with regularity along with Dolly Varden. Early on, the fish are a bit thinner from the long winter but put on significant weight as fall draws closer.  This section of the river is included in our Alaska Fishing Packages where we offer Alaska Fly Fishing Trips and Alaska Salmon Trips with our Kenai River Fishing Guides.

Upper Kenai River Guided Fishing Trip (Sportsman’s to Jim’s Landing 5 miles)

Species: Coho Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Rainbows, Dolly Varden We fish this section of the river primarily during the month of September when the spawn is in full swing. This is a shorter section to float but produces quiet well and we often offer this to multiple day clients in an effort to provide a different float/location each day.  This section of the river is included in our Alaska Fishing Packages where we offer Alaska Fly Fishing Trips and Alaska Salmon Trips with our Kenai River Fishing Guides.

Middle Kenai River Guided Fishing Trip (Skilak Lake Outlet to Bing’s Landing)

Species: Rainbows, Dolly Varden, Pink Salmon, Coho Salmon, King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon. This is a great section of the river to fish during the late Summer and Fall. During the even year Pink Salmon run, fishing for trophy sized Rainbows can be incredible. Nine weight rods and salmon sized nets are the go to equipment when fishing here during the egg feast.  This section of the river is included in our Alaska Fishing Packages where we offer Alaska Fly Fishing Trips and Alaska Salmon Trips with our Kenai River Fishing Guides.

Lower Kenai Guided Fishing Trip (Moose River to Swiftwater 11 miles)

Kenai Cache Outfitters, Alaska Fishing Guides

Species: King Salmon, Rainbows, Dolly Varden, and Coho Salmon. This section of the river is good during the early summer and fall. Here the fishing is more about quality then quantity. Fish in excess of 20″ are commonplace when fished at the right time with double digit catches as a realistic expectation. We fish this section of the river as an alternative for our multi day guest along with special request.  This section of the river is included in our Alaska Fishing Packages where we offer Alaska Fly Fishing Trips and Alaska Salmon Trips with our Kenai River Fishing Guides.

Lower Kenai River Guided Fishing Trip (Centennial Park to Pillars)

Russian River Sockeye

Species: Rainbows, Dolly Varden, King Salmon. Fishing this section of the river can be phenomenal during the Spring and early Summer. The river here runs wider then in most other parts of the Kenai. This is also King country where the current world record King salmon was caught in May 1985. In addition to offering trips here in the Spring and early summer, we also offer this as a multi day fishing trip alternative.  This section of the river is included in our Alaska Fishing Packages where we offer Alaska Fly Fishing Trips and Alaska Salmon Trips with our Kenai River Fishing Guides.

Kasilof River: Species: King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Steelhead, Coho Salmon.

2013 Silvers

We spend many Spring and early Summer days here fishing for King Salmon. Out largest in 2007 was 47 ½ pounds that was chrome bright and full of fight. The fish here are fresh from the ocean and eager to tear up tackle. Steelhead is often caught incidental to King Salmon fishing. This river also offers a great run of Coho Salmon.
