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!

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

John and Heather are the best people. They run a great service on the Kenai River. I have been floating and fishing with John for 8 years, he know every turn and great spot on the river. 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
