My name is Steve I have been fishing in Alaska for the last 15 years. I was on a trip in Sept. 2020 to fish the Kenai with my son Stephen and a friend James and we booked 2 days with 5 Dogs Fishing and I have to tell you that Adam is the best guide that I have ever had on the river. We did full-day floats through the cannon to the lake and caught so many large fish. All his equipment was top-notch. I used a little 5 weight and had a blast fighting the big fish. My friend James was a big photographer and Adam stopped the boat so he could take pictures of eagles, black bears, brown bears whenever he wanted. It was my son Stephen's first time in Alaska and I'm glad that we had Adam as a guide. I would recommend Five Dogs Fishing to anyone that wants a great day on the river.

Adam is not just guiding you to fish, he takes you on an adventure! From having all the gear you need, to making sure you are comfortable with it, he is awesome! The above mentored gear, by the way, is top notch and well maintained, ensuring you stay dry and comfortable, and ready to catch fish. We caught Rainbow trout, Dolly Varden and Salmon, and saw a variety of wildlife. Even if handling fish is not your thing, he will help you get a picture showing your catch, so you can relive that awesome moment with friends at home.
Amazing scenery, coupled with his intimate knowledge of the river, made it a great part of a one in a lifetime trip, I would definitely recommend booking a trip with 5 Dogs!

We did a full day private trip of the Upper Kenai Refuge; in a word, “brilliant.” Adam is a highly skilled guy with a very engaging and easygoing personality which makes for a fun day on the river. Organizing the trip with Danette was seamless and communication was excellent. Adam worked hard putting us on fish and we had great success, catching rainbow and Dolly Varden trout and sockeye salmon. He is very organized and sets you up for success. What a day! The scenery is spectacular and the float through the canyon to Skilak Lake was gorgeous. All of the equipment provided is top-notch, and the boat is very comfortable. We would highly recommend Five Dogs Fishing; definitely the highlight of our Alaska trip.

My family of 4 fished with Adam today and had a fantastic time. We highly recommend choosing him to be your fishing guide. The sockeye season had just started and they weren't moving up the Kenai very fast so he gave us the option of starting earlier in the morning to try for salmon or to start later and go for catch and release trout. We decided to go for the earlier time and it ended up being a success. None of us had fly fished before and Adam was a patient teacher. He provided waders and we fished both from inside the boat and in the water which were both fun. He made sure we all had a good experience and we all caught enough salmon to eat some tonight and also bring several home. It ended up being sort of a wildlife tour too as we saw more bald eagles than we could count and also a beaver happily swimming along in front of our boat with a large branch for quite some time until it veered off to it's lodge. A good time was had by all. We will definitely book with 5 dogs fishing if we ever visit Alaska again.

That was a really fun trip and I am so stoked you enjoyed, and are enjoying the Sockeye Salmon you caught! The Upper Kenai is a great and scenic river that is for sure!

I am a retired high school Agriculture teacher and an avid trout fisherman from northern Wisconsin. Adam Snyder of Five Dogs Fishing on the Kenai River, is an excellent host and guide. He is a very good teacher and will put you on fish. We limited on Silvers, caught sockeyes, and rainbow trout. His personality and character is outstanding which made the trip so much fun. He is conscientious and works very hard to make sure you are successful in catching fish. I highly recommend him. You will have a good time. (I tried to upload a picture but trip advisor said my pic was too large). I was pictured with Adam and the stringer of fish we caught. It was impressive.

I had a full day charter guided by Adam Snyder, in his new green river guide boat, on the Kenai River just below where the Russian River empties into the Kenai River; it is just outside Cooper Landing.
Adam places me where the Russian Red Sockeye were running and patiently showed me, someone with no fly fishing experience, how to cast and catch fish. Had a great day on the river! He set me up for success!

Adam is an outstanding guide. Very professional and extremely knowledgeable on fishing the area. Very responsive to customer desires and he goes out of his way to ensure you have the best experience possible. Signed up for a trout river fishing trip and Adam provided us with multiple options allowing us to chose what we wanted to do. Adam has over 15 years of fishing experience in the area so if you want someone who can truly provide you a memorable fishing experience Adam is your guy. He will definitely be the guide I use when I come back to the area.

We left all the details to Danette and Adam and they came through....again. We booked this trip on our last visit to AK and this was the only attraction that we booked again. Adam has a good way about him. Of course he knows the river well but he is easy and steady with us as we try to hook and land the fish as well.

Beautiful day and we will have these good memories for ever

We did a half day trip with Adam on the upper Kenai - my 13 year old son and I fishing and my wife photographing everything. Adam was outstanding - put us on fish early and often. We caught rainbows, Dolly Varden and some sockeye - was a fantastic 4 hours.

Adam is awesome. We went fishing on Friday the 13th and about 10 minutes into the trip we hit 2 sockeye at once. My eight year son’s reel broke as our boat way drifting toward a concrete pylon on the bridge. The fish made a chance to escape by swimming on either side the the pylon. Adam calmly paddled the boat against the current, guided both fish under the bridge, fixed the reel, and netted both fish (pictured below) If you want a pro fishing experience, five dogs are your company.
