Fish in one of the most beautiful settings on earth with us! Rare permits give us the ability to share this entire stretch of river with you. Experience the upper Kenai river on an 8 hour full-day guided fishing trip in 20 foot custom drift boats sometimes stopping in the best places to do some Kenai River wade fishing from shore. Fly fishing and spin fishing in small groups provides a personalized experience with your seasoned local guide/instructor Mike Adams.  Enjoy the Chugach National Forest and/or the upper Kenai National Wildlife Refuge with the chance of seeing the local wildlife that abounds here. Fishing on the upper Kenai River is an unparalleled experience. Fishing for native Kenai River rainbow trout and dolly varden char is an excellent choice. Cooper Landing salmon fishing is also fantastic during our two Kenai River sockeye salmon runs and our two silver salmon runs.

Mike guided my sons and I on an unforgettable day of fishing
Aug 2021
We spent a full day of salmon fishing on the Upper Kenai. Mike was extremely helpful, patiently teaching us the proper techniques. He knew where the good "holes" were and we saw lots of action throughout the day. We learned a great deal about the forest life cycle and plant life as well. Another highlight was my son spotting a black bear on the shore of the lake and pulling up close for observation. Highly recommend Mike to anyone who wants to experience awesome fishing and beautiful surroundings.

Best fishing ever!
Jun 2021 • Friends
Our group of four had an amazing day fishing with Mike. We did float and bank fishing and tried multiple areas. Scenery is beautiful and the water is turquoise, so bring a camera for lots of eagles and salmon, rainbow trout, and dolly varden pictures. Mike is experienced and very patient in teaching techniques. For the waders, bring warm boot socks for a more comfortable day in early June. We also saw bears and a coyote on the bank.

We left early 3:30am for the best fishing and it's light out already. Fewer anglers and well worth it! Great recommendation from Mike! Will definitely book with him again and highly recommend you do too!

Great Alaskan Fishing Experience
Jul 2020 • Family
I want to say that Mike did an awesome job accommodating my family this past summer (late July 2020). He was very knowledgeable and helped us all experience the thrill of hooking the salmon! If you want a guided tour I highly recommend you choose Mike and Alaskan Angling Adventures.

Couldn’t Ask for a Better Guide
I fished with Mike back in July and it was one of the highlights of my trip to Alaska. Mike is super knowledgeable about the ever changing conditions on the Kenai. He was a true professional and it was a joy to fish with him. I left the drift boat that day with sore arms and a camera filled with pictures of massive Dollys, Rainbows, and Sockeye. I highly recommend fishing with Mike and look forward to booking another trip in the future.

True professional
My husband and I had a great day fishing on the upper Kenai with Mike. We had already been one day earlier in the week with a different group and wanted to go back. Luckily Mike had availability on short notice. He took us to a different part of the river so we could see some different scenery and also catered to the type of fishing we wanted to do (fly fishing for silver salmon, trout, and dolly). We got lucky and both caught silvers. Mike was great about stopping to take pictures for us when we had a picture-worthy fish, he had hot chocolate when I was really cold from wading, and overall he was super knowledgeable. I am newer to fly fishing but I felt comfortable with Mike. He kindly taught me some new mending techniques and casting styles. At the end of the day we had to traverse Kenai Lake and as a highlight got to see four black bears along the bank! It was so cool. Mike took us over to them. The whole day never felt rushed at all. If we ever get to come back we’ll definitely book with Mike again.

Four of us had a great day fishing with Mike, caught Salmon, rainbows, and dolly. We got to spend the first part of the morning across the river from four grizzlies! Mike was super helpful, we were newer to the area and learned a ton from him! He clearly knows his stuff and knows the river!

A Must Do Adventure!
Aug 2020
My husband and I decided to book this trip with Mike on our recent trip to Alaska and boy was it a great choice. Mike is so passionate about what he does and he really takes the time to teach and coach you along the way. We had a bonus of seeing 3 bear cubs that was the highlight of our trip not to mention catching some beautiful Salmon. It was great interacting with Mike and come to find out he grew up just a few hours from us! Will definitely fish with Mike if we make it back to Alaska!

Excellent Upper Kenai River Fishing Trip!
Jul 2020
We chose the Upper Kenai River trip for a more relaxed and beautiful area to float and boy was that the correct choice! We lucked out with beautiful weather and even saw a couple bears and bald eagles. And of course, Mike put us on all the fishing honey holes! For 2 completely beginners with fly fishing, Mike took the time to teach us and continue teaching us the proper way to get the salmon in the net. We caught more than just Sockeye on this trip too, we caught Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden as well. We had an absolute blast and would highly recommend this trip!

Amazing Fishing Aventure
Mike was awesome. I had fished the Kenai before and always regretted not going out with a guide. This time I wasn’t going to make the same mistake and I went on a full day trip with my wife and 10 year old daughter. Before the trip, my wife kept commenting on how nice Mike was and his pre fishing communications were great. My daughter was a little nervous at first but after her first sockeye she was hooked. Mike was amazing with her and seeing her have a good time was worth the trip. Mike is easy going and a pleasure to spend the day on the water with. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the animals. We throughly enjoyed fishing with mike and I couldn’t recommend him enough. If you have young kids I don’t know if you could find a better guide to go with. He is so mellow and easy going. Also we practiced all catch and release and mike did a great job with handling the fish as little as possible. Overall it was an amazing day on the water. My daughter is still giving me a hard time about catching more dolly varden than me.
