We had an amazing time! Cold and rainy, 30 minute trip down the river to Reubins favorite spot. After a 10 minute tutorial we spent the day limiting out and brought home 50 lbs of processed and packed salmon. Amazing day!

Fantastic week of fishing fun and excitement with John Pierson our guide. I've been enjoying fishing with John for14 years, and without exception, every year is memorable. John brings a unique blend of knowledge, humor, energy and results to every trip..

This group did not disappoint. From the excellent accommodations to the expertise on the river. We caught a ton of fish and slept soundly in the wonderful cabin. Even did some fishing from the shoreline there.

Our 15th trip to AK wouldn't be complete without a drift down the Kenai with John at the oars! John always gets us into BIG FISH. He and his wife Heather are an amazing team. They make our fishing trip an epic event every year! Go with John if it's the big trouts and salmons you desire on the end... More

This was a fantastic trip! My wife and I fished a half day for Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden. We caught a lot of fish including a couple of Sockeye Salmon. John was EXTREMELY knowledgeable of the river, fishing tactics, and wildlife. I had never done a float trip and my wife is still getting used to fly fishing but... More

I have been fishing on the Kenai River for 30 years. I started fishing with John at Kenai River Float-n-Fish over 10 years ago, and he is my first choice when it comes to fishing guides. Unlike a lot of the bigger guided fishing companies, who hire seasonal guides with little experience on the Kenai, John knows the river well,... More

We booked the half day Upper Kenai River trip online as part of our Alaskan vacation / road trip. Booking the trip was easy and Heather promptly answered our questions via email. We bought our non-resident fishing licenses the day before at one of the local shops. Alaskan fishing licenses can also be purchased on-line. We arrived as scheduled at... More

John was an outstanding fishing guide. He was professional and a great coach for my companion who was new to fly fishing. John put us on fish all day long and was genuinely excited every time a fish was brought to the boat. He was patient, encouraging, and knowledgeable. Heather's customer service for all the business for booking and billing... More
