Kenai Kings with Kenai Fly Fish - Sterling, Alaska, USA


Rainbow Trout


The Kenai River is a well-known fishing hot spot for Rainbow trout. It supports one of the healthiest and most robust populations in Alaska, making it an excellent place to catch these fish! Kenai River rainbows can be well over 30 inches and up to 20lbs!

Dolly Varden Char


Dolly Varden is a small, delicate fish with the ability to jump out of the water and onto your fly. They are fun to catch because they can be difficult for beginners but easy once you get used to them! Dollies range of all sizes and can reach up to about 12 lbs.



Alaska is the last frontier for fishing enthusiasts, and if you’re looking to take your skills up a notch or just want an adventure this fall then steelhead fishing on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula should be at top of the list. Steelheads are very uniform in shape and average around 28 inches. These amazing, acrobatic fish are often a fly fisherman’s favorite to target.

King Salmon

MAY 20 to JULY 31

The most famous salmon in all of America is, without question or dispute…the Kings Of The Kenai! That’s right folks; it takes a lot to get your name on this list and earn yourself an 80-pounder.

Sockeye Salmon

JUNE 11 to AUGUST 15

Sockeye salmon (also called red salmon) are the most popular salmon to catch on the Kenai Peninsula. The most famous and best-eating salmon in the world starts coming to Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula around June. These sockeye are noted for their sweet flavor, which can’t be beat anywhere!

Coho (Silver) Salmon


Coho “Silver” Salmon is a great fish for fly fishermen to target. Ranging in weight from 5-20 pounds, these salmon can be found jumping up and down near the bank of Kenai River’s waters where they were first born years ago!

Pink Salmon


Here at Kenai Fly Fish we think that Pink Salmon are the best fish for younger ages and family fun fishing trips. Pinks are completely underrated, they are extremely aggressive to catch and come in by the millions!



Halibut fishing is a thrill all year round. You can easily find Halibuts in June, July, and August when the weather becomes more stable with temperatures not changing too much from day to night or hour-to-hour

I was more than pleased with my fishing trip to the Kenai with guide, Ian McDonald. Ian is very experienced and obviously knows this river like the back of his hand. I would highly recommend his guide service to anyone that is looking for a fantastic day of fishing on the Kenai no matter what skill level you are. Ian is patient, knowledgeable, courteous and professional. I can't wait to fish with him again.

Caught our silver limit within the first 20 minutes and spent the rest of our day catching more trout than I’ve ever seen! Ian was incredibly helpful and showed us an amazing time. Regardless of your experience level, this is worth the trip. Couldn’t recommend enough!

This is my second time going out with Kenai Fly Fish/Ian. He WILL get you into a fish. Very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and uses this knowledge to find fish. Went out with family and we had some beginners in the group. Everyone caught a fish (even Daryl). He really is passionate about his job and can answer questions. Everyone is welcome from beginners to the most experienced anglers.

We’ve fished with Ian for the last 3 summers. Kings, reds and silvers. Ian has never lets us down. Every year he puts us on the fish. Ian is a hard working guide who knows the rivers and does right by his clients. If you want to make some “memories”, fish with Ian!!
