After spending 15 minutes with John it was like I was fishing with a life long friend. John's knowledge of the Kenai River is impressive. Not only does he know how, when and where to catch fish, his knowledge of the rivers history, the plant, wildlife life and geography added to the experience. Went nine for twelve for the day...

My husband and I (both 70) went on a 1/2 day fishing trip on June 22, 2015 with John to celebrate our 48th anniversary!! Best day and most fun on our whole 12 days in Alaska. I researched fishing a year ago and everyone gave him such high reviews so I called and spoke with Heather last January (she's so... More

What a great guide John is! He displays such enthusiasm and excitement for what he does and has such a positive attitude for all his clients not matter what their level of ability. The trip was the best as we caught fish wherever we dropped lines with the highlight for me being when we fly fished a feeder stream catching... More

My family of 5 did the half day float-n-fish with John. We had an amazing time. John was wonderful and knew all the spots to catch fish. We caught 27 that day! Incredible. The scenery was beautiful. Would love to come back and do another fishing trip with John. He and his wife Heather were such nice people.

We booked a half day fishing trip with Kenai River Float-n-Fish and we picked the best. John, our guide, trainer and expert on the Kenai River was amazing. His enthusiasm and love of fishing was catching (no pun intended!). He knows the river like the back of his hand and made navigating down the river look easy (we know it's... More

My wife and I did the half day with John and we cannot think of one thing that would have made the trip better. We had a great time, caught dolly varden, rainbow and salmon. We kept one fish for dinner. John is a great guide, knows what he's talking about, great personality and kept a rod in our hand... More

What a great end of vacation float and fish with John and Heather- Kenai River Float and Fish! The weather cooperated and John could not have been nicer or more knowledgeable. Heather was great with giving me pre-trip information and it was fun to meet the family when she picked us up after our fishing was done! I was traveling... More

If you use a guide in Cooper Landing, use John. He and Adam were great. He has super knowledge of the river and different ways to catch the fish. We loved the whole experience. Don't use anyone else!!

We recently took some visiting friends on a (primarily) catch-and-release float with John on the upper kenai. Everyone had a wonderful time, from the moment we tried on the waders and rode in the van to the put-in, to listening to John's knowledge about the river and the area, to catching some beautiful fish!! :-) He gave us the choice...

We came to Alaska for a wedding and decided to go fishing. We had an awesome time with Kenai River Float-n-Fish. Our guide, John was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we all had a wonderful time. He is an absolute blast! I have been on many float trips and this was by far the best. Highly recommend this company!
