Kenai River Rainbow Trout, Year Round

Rainbow trout are by far my favorite species to fish for in fresh water. They are well known for jumping and explosive runs. These fish live their entire life in fresh water gorging themselves on decaying salmon and their eggs. Wild rainbows are catch and release only on the Kenai River. Kenai rainbows are some of the largest wild trout in Alaska, they grow very large because of the abundant food source created by the millions of salmon spawning on the river.  Kenai River rainbows can be well over 30 inches and up to 20lbs!
