Contact us to book now Alaska rainbow trout fishing is one of the most rewarding and thrilling an angler will experience by far.

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.

Alaska rainbow trout are insatiable feeders, and the Kenai is a perfect, plentiful habitat for these fish. A 10-pound rainbow trout is not uncommon, and monsters of more than 20 pounds have been caught in this world renowned river. Our guides at Drift Away are experts at finding those sweet spots for catching trophies while preserving and respecting this precious resource for a healthy, native population of Alaska rainbow trout.

Battling one of these monsters will challenge the most experienced fly anglers. We at Drift Away are well seasoned in the unusual fly fishing techniques that are used on the Kenai. Our guides have the equipment and knowledge to provide the most exciting and rewarding Alaska guided fishing trip an angler could dream of.
