Rainbow Trout fishing on the Kenai river at any time of the season is great. That said, there are times when it is at its peak like Mid August to Mid October
This trophy rainbow is 27.5 inches but has an 18.5 inch girth!! A guided trout fishing trip on the Middle Kenai River is your best chance at landing one of these chromers!
The Kenai River's environment is very favorable to rainbow trout because of the vast number of salmon that swim through the state’s rivers every summer. Rainbows flood in and fatten up on the flesh and eggs of spawning salmon. The Kenai Peninsula offers an abundance of rainbow trophies for those looking to experience the thrill of challenging this majestic, hard fighting fish.
