We have been fishing the Kenai with John Pearson since 2003. We book a trip or more with him every year. There is no finer guide on the Kenai. John won't tell you because he's a humble man but no one knows The Mighty Kenai River or how to lure trophy trout with a "greedy bead" quite like John! If... More

You will catch fish! He knows a great deal of the history of the river and the area. John and Heather have a... More

Not really sure where to start, there is so much I can share about Kenai River float-n-Fish! All told I have done six trips with them, and they have all been great. John is a really great guide. His knowledge of the river is extensive, and it is a joy to listen to him and see his passion for the... More

So, john meets us at their Tee pee with a big ol' grin like he's the brother I haven't seen in a year. He is excited to start this float! He makes my wife and me feel at home and his excitement is contagious. Fast forward to our day on the water and shores. John knows and loves every mile... More

We try to fish with John at least once a year. He is so personable and has such a vast knowledge of the Kenai! He has great patience for those of us who are fishing impaired! It is such a treat to float with him. We enjoy spending time with Heather, too. She is so great in helping us book... More

Here is what our Kenai Peninsula trout and salmon trips with John have looked like over the years: + John suggests what to fish with, how to fish it, and where to fish it… + We catch tons of incredible fish… + While the folks around us scratch their heads in wonder… John’s personable nature makes an already extraordinary day...

John & Heather, What a wonderful seven mile drift in September 2014. We've never fished underneath such a beautiful back drop in our lives. John's knowledge of the river, the resource, his sense of humor along with his occasional rendition of "Hello Dollie" , made this a trip we"ll never forget! Thanks again.... ~Ben & Sue

This is an awesome place to do. They have professionals taking you on a boat ride that you will never forget! They have knowledge of the area and the fish. You can take a rod and fish along or they provide you with one. The people are friendly and provide a safe boat ride

John and his family are awesome! Had some friends in from the lowers and used Float-n-Fish b/c we randomly found it online and they had openings. Turns out it was meant to be. From the 1st time I spoke with Heather on the phone, I knew we were going to be treated well. They were awesome in accommodating and being... More

Kenai Float-n-Fish is a small, family-owned and operated guide service on the Upper Kenai River. We took a half-day fishing trip with John in late August and came away with memories to last a lifetime! My husband, our daughter and I were definitely beginners, and we found John patient and encouraging. He provided excellent fishing instruction as well as lots... More
