Jason’s Guide Service provides professionally guided fishing trips that’ll have you reeling in trophy-sized Rainbow Trout and a variety of Salmon in no time. Your guide, Jason Lesmeister, has over 20 years experience providing guided adventures along the Kenai River in Alaska, and prides himself on providing fully-customized trips that are perfectly suited to fit his customers’ needs.
Jason lives where he guides, and spends over 200 days a year on the water, both professionally and for fun. His goal is to provide eco-friendly fishing trips that will provide a lifetime of memories, and protect these rivers and lakes so that they can be enjoyed by future anglers. Jason practices catch and release on all native Rainbow Trout, while Dolly Varden and varieties of Salmon can be caught for both sport and table fare.
You’ll head out onto Kenai River in a 20’ Willie drift boat. Drift boating is perfect for anglers who want a hands-on experience, as it allows you to fish from the boat as well as “beaching up” and wading these productive waters for your catch. It also allows for a peaceful, environmentally-friendly adventure. Jason can accommodate up to 4 guests on each trip, and his drift boat is equipped with all of the necessary navigational and safety gear for a productive day on the water.
Jason prides himself on not only being a year-round guide, but also living and fishing in his guiding area. This means that he is able to keep his finger on the pulse when it comes to the species that travel through this river! He knows the best times to visit for your dream catch. Want to reel in huge Rainbow Trout? Visit during Autumn. If you’re after Sockeye Salmon, join Jason in July. You’ll also have the chance to hook Chinook and Coho Salmon, and plenty more.
You’ll be provided with top-quality G-Loomis, Shimano, and Lamson rods and reels, as well as tackle. All you need to bring is a fishing license. Join Jason’s Guide Service and get ready to reel in your dream catch!
