Alaska offers many different angling opportunities. The Kenai is arguably Alaska's most famous fishing river and best known for its runs of giant King Salmon (Chinook). The world record King was taken here in 1985 and weighed over 97 pounds. While the Kings draw many anglers to the Lower Kenai, fly-fishers typically focus on the Upper Kenai and the numerous rainbow trout. Fish over five pounds are common. Larger rainbows to twenty pounds or more are landed yearly. In addition to the rainbows, Dolly Varden are plentiful with many caught weighing four to six pounds. Sockeye (Red) Salmon arrive in huge numbers in mid June and from mid July through August. During large runs, the Sockeye (Reds) have returned to the Kenai in numbers exceeding one million fish. Silver (Coho) Salmon join the fray from early August into the winter season. Many consider Silvers to be the best of the salmon species to target with a fly. Join us to have an unforgettable fishing experience.
