Kenai River Trout Anglers

Po Box 818
Cooper Landing AK, United States

Kenai River Trout Anglers can be found snuggled into the beautiful town of Cooper Landing, right on the world famous Kenai River. Offering daily drift boat fishing excursions in pursuit of Salmon, Trout, and Dolly Varden, everything they do is centered around introducing their guests to the joys of fishing in pristine surroundings. Join guide JJ Brown, one of the few people licensed to guide people in the exclusive Upper Kenai River National Wildlife Refuge, and live your dream of fishing Alaska’s Kenai River.

Whether you are a fanatic fly fisherman, lure casting angler, or have never fished before in your life, by the end of your trip with Kenai River Trout Anglers you will be fishing the river like a pro. You will be taken out on the water on a drift boat that is perfectly suited for these waters, and as you set off you will become immersed in the nature that surrounds you. Traveling through the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and the Chugach National Forest, you could see not only fish, but also bears, elk, and mighty birds of prey.

Fishing trips will take you across the Upper River, Middle River, or Lower River, and you could even have the chance to fish in the stunning Canyon (weather conditions permitting). These waters play host to the annual migration of the Sockeye and Silver Salmon - an event that brings anglers to this untouched area every year. As the Salmon move upstream, they bring nutrients, color, and life to the area’s peaceful waters. And with 18 years of experience guiding fly fishing trips in the local area, Kenai River Trout Anglers will make sure that you experience this incredible event to the full.

Out on the water from June 11th - October, this guide service will ensure you are fishing at the right time of year to catch fish. With peak season running from mid-August through October, make sure you book in good time to secure your spot!

Alec was on time, calm, careful in his instructions on safety and on how to catch each type of fish.  He provided a great experience and had a great sense of humor.
