Kenai River Cowboys provide guided fishing for Salmon and Trout along the Kenai River and Kasilof River on the Kenai Peninsula. This is Trophy King Salmon waters but equally home to 30" Rainbow Trout and big Dolly Varden. Both the Kenai and the Kasilof Rivers are home to a million-fish runs of Sockeye Salmon too. While there are many Kenai River fishing guides to choose from...with Kenai River Cowboys expect experienced & professional guides as well as high quality fishing gear & boats.

Fishing with Kenai River Cowboys

Kenai River Cowboys are out of Sterling, Alaska and just off the Sterling Highway between Coppers Landing and Kenai. This gives the guides easy access to two of the world's best freshwater Salmon Fisheries and that means you get more time on the water to fish for Trophies.

You can opt for a 4-hour trip or an 8-hour adventure. If you are short on time or just passing through, 4-hours is plenty of quality time to fish and battle big Fish. The full-blown 8-hour fishing trip is ideal for anyone who wants to limit out on Kings, Silvers or Sockeye Salmon. In addition, these water hold many trophy trout, not just a few here and there. When the Sockeye Salmon are running, they literally bump into you if you are casting from the shallows. The season for the upper Kenai is short if you want to target Kings. Do so early as they hit their spawning beds quickly. If the season for kings is closed, target the big Rainbow Trout. They swim with the kinds and feed off the roe. The same is true of the Dolly Varden which are similar to Rainbows but dressed a little more fancy. Both are excellent sports fish and both are available here on the Kenai or Kasilof Rivers.
