We had a wonderful first Sockeye Salmon trip on the Kenai. My son and I caught our limit and released a few. John, the owner, gave us a great value and wonderful day on the river. Recommend it to any fly fisherman that wants to fish for Sockeye and see a beautiful river.

We spent two months in Alaska and Kenai River fishing with Kenai River Float-n-Fish was one of the highlights. Trip was half day, with my wife and I , and and two other people. None of us were experienced at fishing. From beginning to end John was entertaining, informative, and most of all hard working to make our trip enjoyable... More

We had just a wonderful experience with John and Heather Pearson. They were so friendly and pleasant that you couldn't help but have a great trip. John guided us down the Kenai River, which has to be one of the most beautiful rivers in North America. We took the late afternoon trip thinking it would be less crowded and quiet,... More

I pride myself on being a fairly savvy traveler, able to find unique places for my family and I to visit. I was beyond pleased with Kenai River Float-n-Fish. I have fished a lot of different places with a wide variety of guides, but John Pearson is first class. He put me on the fish, and I was able to... More

We weren't in the water 5 minutes and I caught my first 10 lb sockeye salmon! And it didn't stop there! John was an excellent, entertaining guide going all out to get us the fish ( and the pictures) we came for. Experience of a life time.

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 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
