    What to Expect
    Drift the upper Kenai river with a local professional guide and experience a taste of this amazing fishery. This beautiful stretch of water is nestled between the peaks of the majestic Kenai Mountains in permitted areas of the Chugach National Forest. This is primarily a drift only area (no motor boats) and offers fishing for native Rainbow trout and Dolly Varden char as well as seasonal opportunities for Sockeye and Silver Salmon.

    The abundant flora and fauna offer a glimpse of Alaska's natural beauty and wildlife sightings are common. Trout and char are catch and release. Salmon have seasonal limits and cleaning of your catch is complimentary.
