Fished the Kenai River on Aug 30 with guide Dusty and his 1st mate a 1&1/2 year old very well behaved Golden Retriever named River. It was a drizzle most of the time fishing. And I did land one Silver!!! However i lost 2 others and much bigger Silvers. So Dusty did put me on our targeted fish. There that’s the bad news! We did however have a great time catching 9 fish mostly sockeye and a couple of bigger ones as you see in the photos. Dusty was making me look good by allowing me to catch one more fish than him. We did spot a pod of 4juvenile Eagles. I had a great time fishing and seeing more of the rugged beauty Alaska offers’ I’d definitely book again with this company THE KENAI COWBOYS

My wife, 6-yr-old son and I did a half-day float/fish on the Kasilof River in late July. Capt. Nick was so kind to our son and really made the experience awesome for him - even helping him catch his own sockeye salmon. He pointed out several unique and interesting features along the river, was very personable and friendly, and the afternoon was full of amazing memories.

Our family (2 adults, 16yo and 13yo boys) spent a day on the middle Kenai River with Mark as our guide in a float boat. He took us right over to a prime bank site, and showed us how to fish sockeye salmon a very unique, local way. Our youngest son had “fish on” in 1 minute! It was an amazing, fun, experience. We ended the day with 17 sockeye, and could have kept going to our limit, but wanted to try for trout. No luck with trout (trolling in the boat), but we didn’t mind, we were happy to be floating down such a beautiful body of water. Incredibly peaceful! Mark was a fantastic guide and very knowledgeable about his craft and the river. The outfitter provided waders and boots for everyone (I wasn’t clear on that point), but be sure to bring lots of warm, waterproof layers. It’s much colder on the water. Highly recommend Kenai Cowboys.

Although the weather could have cooperated better, our guide, Nick did an excellent job of keeping our group of four entertained and on fish.

Awesome day with Dusty on the upper Kasilof. We had almost zero experience fishing and Dusty was patient and instructive. He put us on sockeye and we would have limited out if we had been any better fishermen. It was a great day and we still ended the day with 7 Sockeye. I definitely recommend this guide
