Brad Kirr Fishing Guide Kenai River Rainbow Trout

Anglers from all over the world flock to the Kenai River to pursue not just Salmon but to chase the wild Rainbow Trout that live in their dreams.  These opportunistic feeders, of behemoth size and strength, are bountiful growing to 30+ inches and reaching nearly 20 pounds! The abundance of food provided by the over 1.5 million returning spawning salmon annually drive this healthy ecosystem of world class measures. The trout are thoughtfully managed, with a conservation mind, to ensure that future generations will enjoy this amazing fishery. At Alaska Kenai Fishing for Fun, we respectfully handle and gently release with great care all native Rainbows no matter their size. Regardless of your experience, a day fishing the Upper or Middle sections, of the Kenai River in Alaska for Rainbow Trout, is a day you will never forget.

A Dolly what...??? These spectacular sport fish are widely dispersed throughout the Pacific Northwest with a high concentration of both sea run and resident fish in the mighty Kenai River. Dolly Varden are in the salmonidae family like a trout or salmon but are most closely related to a char. These prized fish are both beautiful and fun to catch! They are carnivorous and opportunistic feeding on a variety of prey from mayflies to crustaceans and salmon eggs to salmon flesh including everything in between. The average Dolly is 16" but they can grow to epic proportions of nearly 30" and 12lbs. These Kenai gems are highly regarded and we go to great measures to protect these specimens using all catch and release tactics.
