The Kenai River is known for its trophy rainbow trout fishing. Not only are they beautiful fish, but they are a blast to fight at the end of your line.
If you choose to book an Alaska trout guide with us, we’ll take you to our favorite portion of the Kenai River. Not only is it full of rainbow trout, but it’s also absolutely stunning. Tucked away in the beautiful Alaskan mountains, this secluded area is just a short boat ride away from Skilak Lake; also known as the perfect lunch spot. Just as we discovered the perfect viewing spots, we also hunted down the ideal gear you’ll need to fight that trophy rainbow trout.
Weather permitting, we prefer to use our Gloomis Fly Rods to catch these guys. Never used a fly rod before? No problem. Our expert guides will have you casting like a seasoned angler in no time. Though Kenai River rainbows are a catch and release species, we’ll be sure to get you the picture of a lifetime. After all, nothing tells a story better than a snapshot of you, surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountains in the world, holding an enormous rainbow trout that you wrangled all by yourself.
