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!!
