Kenai River Trout Fishing is world-class! Fortunate to maintain a healthy ecosystem, the Kenai River is one of the last great places to support wild, rainbow trout and Dolly Varden populations. These trout and char are able gorge themselves and reach enormous size, thanks to food provided by salmon! Beautifully colored, and aggressive, these fish are extremely exciting to catch! If you would like to try and hook one of these behemoths, book your trip today.
Kenai River rainbow trout are primarily year-round, resident fish. However small numbers of steelhead (ocean-going) do exist. Rainbow trout spawn in the Kenai River between late March and early July. They are carnivores feeding primarily on fish, salmon carcasses, eggs, and even small mammals. Kenai River rainbow trout have an average life span between 4 and 11 years of age. The average length of these fish is between 10 and 40 inches, with many between 24 to 28 inches. Kenai River rainbow trout are known for their fight! Whether they are 10 inches or 40, they will hit hard, and give you and your rod a run for your money! That with their rich rainbow color pattern and striking black spots, they are definitely a sight to be seen!
Kenai River Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma) are both resident and ocean-going fish, that spawn in the fall between September and November. They are carnivores that feed opportunistically on a variety of prey including: insects, small fish, and salmon eggs. Dolly Varden have an average life span between 5 and 16 years of age. They have an average length between 10 and 30 inches, with many in the 20 to 25 inch range! In the fall as Dolly Varden transform into their spawning colors of deep green, orange, red, and white, they become a photographer’s dream!
Kenai River Trout Fishing begins on June 11th, and runs through the end of October, with the peak season between mid-August through October.
