This was going to be the 3rd time I had every gone fishing as an 11 year boy who has never caught ANYTHING and feeling totally down about what could happen. But as soon as we got there and we met our wonderful guides, Adam and John. There and then my mindset changed. I looked back and chuckled as maybe... More

I had my best friend from High School and his son here from Minnesota. I have known John & Heather for a few years and they absolutely the best of people. John is a great Guide and knows the river well. We were on fish immediately. He had my friends fishing like PRO's for Reds in a few casts. They... More

I booked a full day trip with the Kenia Float-n-Fish for a buddy and I and I was very please with whole experience. We fished with a very nice couple from Austin, Texas. Our guide, John, provided all the gear necessary for fishing the Kenai. Being passionate about fishing, the outdoors, and an accomplished angler, John was very eager to... More

Our family of five (14, 13, 10) did the half day float and fish with John, the owner on Aug 6. Not all guides will accommodate five so thank you to John for taking our family! He was great with the kids, always ready to help when we needed it and giving great guidance and tips for fishing on the... More

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
