I took a float down the Kenai river fishing for rainbow trout with John mid September 2016. I was very well taken care of. His very friendly, entertaining and knowlegeable way was very appreciated. I caught more trout than I can count. Heather was excellent in booking and communicating promptly be email, answering any questions. I would recommend this float... More

John did such a great job with my two boys (8 and 11). Not only did we catch fish, he made it an informative trip which me and the boys loved. I would highly recommend these guys for your next float trip.

My husband and I booked a full day trip with float and fish after our original plan of a bear viewing flight was cancelled due to weather. This trip turned out to be a truly amazing experience that I didn't expect. I'm personally not experienced with fishing. John is an amazing guide, we had a blast. He is a great... More

We had an amazing time! Cold and rainy, 30 minute trip down the river to Reubins favorite spot. After a 10 minute tutorial we spent the day limiting out and brought home 50 lbs of processed and packed salmon. Amazing day!

Fantastic week of fishing fun and excitement with John Pierson our guide. I've been enjoying fishing with John for14 years, and without exception, every year is memorable. John brings a unique blend of knowledge, humor, energy and results to every trip..

This group did not disappoint. From the excellent accommodations to the expertise on the river. We caught a ton of fish and slept soundly in the wonderful cabin. Even did some fishing from the shoreline there.

Our 15th trip to AK wouldn't be complete without a drift down the Kenai with John at the oars! John always gets us into BIG FISH. He and his wife Heather are an amazing team. They make our fishing trip an epic event every year! Go with John if it's the big trouts and salmons you desire on the end... More

This was a fantastic trip! My wife and I fished a half day for Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden. We caught a lot of fish including a couple of Sockeye Salmon. John was EXTREMELY knowledgeable of the river, fishing tactics, and wildlife. I had never done a float trip and my wife is still getting used to fly fishing but... More
