Lower Middle Kenai River
Upon leaving the beautiful and remote Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, you will find yourself floating down the more settled section of the Kenai River. Enjoy the beautiful riverside homes and wide slow flowing baby blue water as you fish the bounty the Kenai River has to offer.
Depending on the time of year we can take you fishing for the mighty King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Silver Salmon, or Trophy Rainbow Trout!
King Salmon are legendary in both their size and fight (Some battles lasting over an hour!) and begin entering the Kenai River early to mid-May and continue through the end of July. The largest of the five Pacific Salmon species, King Salmon are powerhouses, guaranteed to get your adrenaline pumping! Limits on the Kenai River for King Salmon are 1 per person per day.
Sockeye Salmon begin showing up in this section of the Kenai River in catchable numbers around Mid-July. These power surging fish are the ones you see in the television programs jumping up waterfalls. When targeting Sockeye Salmon, your expert guide will row you down to a honey hole on the bank for an extraordinary day of fly swinging (fishing). Runs during this time usually average between 30,000 -230,000 fish daily so, at times fishing can be crazy but they are fish and plentiful one minute gone the next!
Silver Salmon begin showing up in this section of river around Aug 15th and can be exhilarating to hook into. These mighty fighting machines will please any angler and are great on the BBQ! We offer Combo Trophy Trout / Silver Salmon.
Trophy Rainbow Trout can also be found throughout this section of the river. With over a million Salmon spawning and dying here annually, there is an unlimited food supply for the trout which translates into some of the largest and most extraordinary trout fishing anywhere in the world. Our world class guides will put you right over these monsters for an experience unlike anything you have ever been through!
