Rainbow Trout

The Kenai River is home to some of the largest native rainbow trout in Alaska. The excitement of hooking one of these prized fish is worth the trip to Alaska in itself. Our permits and experience allow us to fish limited access areas of the river.

Along with trout, the Kenai is home to a large population of Dollies. These fish make the upper Kenai a fly or spin fisherman’s paradise.
