Val and Alice Tibbits Limit Out!

The water on the Kenai River in the National Wildlife Refuge is still way low and clear but the first run is starting to materialize. So much so, that Val and Alice limited out today! Good numbers of Sockeye Salmon both on lines and near the boats. Starting to feel like fishing season!

2011 Season Start!

guiding 001The start of the 2011 season is finally here. We are already reeling in a ton of Sockeyes, Bows and Dollys here at Kenai River Fly Fishing! Everyone limited out on Sockeyes on day 1!

The river is coming up and it is really clear so the Sockeyes are running really deep. Due to the large snow pack in Alaska floats are fast and trips are sometimes doubling up on river runs. We’ll be posting about everyday, sometimes twice a day so check back often! Be sure to subscribe by email at the bottom of the page if you want the KRFF River Report in your email! Trips are booking up fast, pick your time of the year and call us at 907.595.5733 or email us at to secure your dates.

Mike, Mark and Wyatt Bonertz Trip

On July 25th my brother, son and I took a 1/2 day float trip down the Kenai river, our Guide was Mike Adams.
I wanted to commend him on his professionalism and knowledge on the river. My brother and I have done several float trips around the US, and my brother has even fished the Amazon. My son is 15 and never has done a float trip and had no idea of what/when to do anything – Mike took the extra time and showed Wyatt exactly what to do and when. To say he was patient would be an understatement. Mike found us the fish. Wyatt hooked into a 23 inch Chum?? and landed it hopefully the picture came out, due to the weather we left our good cameras at home and I took this with my phone.
Mike also told us about several places to have our catch processed and sent home; it should be here tomorrow, we cant wait… I can say if we are ever in the area again we will use your guide service again and will pass your info on to friends traveling. Again my complements to your service and especially Mike.
