As your personal fishing guide on the Kenai River, Scott Eggemeyer will lead you to World Class King Salmon, feisty Sockeye Salmon, acrobatic Silver Salmon and majestic Rainbow Trout. The Kenai River and her little brother the Kasilof River produce amazing fishing for King Salmon from May through July with prime weeks in June and July. Silver Salmon start in the beginning of August until November. Sockeye Salmon fishing is from the middle of June through the beginning of August on the Kenai River. The Rainbow Trout are available in great size and number from June through November on the Kenai River and other area streams and creeks.
You will use different tactics and fishing styles depending on species and water conditions on the Kenai River as well as the Kasilof River. Willie Drift boats as well as Willie Power boats will be used during your fishing vacation with Alaska Bear Paw Drifters.
Rainbow trout has become the passion of Alaska Bear Paw Drifters. Whether you are an experienced fly fisher or never touched a fishing rod, these great leaping hard charging fish are waiting for you in the Kenai River. We look forward to helping you accomplish the trip of all trips to Alaska.

About the Captain

Scott Eggemeyer
Sterling, Alaska, United States
Member since March 2016
I love to see people catch fish. Helping people to catch the fish of a life time is the highlight of my year. My Dad and Uncle gave me a respect and an enjoyment for the outdoors at a young age. Since then I have spent the last 20 years honing my skills of communication and fishing expertise. All that is missing is you and your party enjoying the wilds of Alaska - one of nature's greatest resources.

Scott will put you on fish, Kenai Rainbow are his passion. Great teacher, mentor and knows were the fish are every day. 28” Rainbow has been my largest in the net.  It is catch and release so he is cautious not to harm the fish.  He has caught a 34” Rainbow on the Kenai, I have seen a replica on the wall. He does what he says he will do. By the was he is a great cook and always is on time.

Randy Eledge, is always the last trip of the year. Silvers, Steel-head and Rainbows are always a great ending to my season.

My wife and I have been fly fishing for over 40 years and have used numerous guides during our travels, but Scott Eggemeyer is certainly one of the best!  We have fished with Scott every year for the last 8 years and have enjoyed every second with him.  He knows the Kenai River and other waters on the Kenai Peninsula like the back of his hand.  Scott uses a Classic Willie power boat that is designed for fly fishing and is extremely comfortable.  We can move from spot to spot quickly and fish the most productive runs.  He is patient, very helpful with fly fishing tips to ensure you have a great day and works tirelessly to put you on fish. As a bonus to great fishing, Scott is also a trained chef and serves a great shore lunch every day.  Scott takes a lot of pride in providing a total Alaskan fly fishing experience, from beginning to end and It is a true pleasure and a lot of fun to fish with him.  My pictures speak for themselves.

Peggy and Paul Pettit are the clients, like so many of mine, that are the reason I look so good on the water.
