“Highly recommend in Cooper Landing!”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

We were referred to Kenai River Float n Fish by Alaska Wildland, because not many outfitters cater to young children. Our kids are not quite old enough for a full day fishing trip, so we booked the half day with John. It was perfect! I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a great intro to fishing the Kenai or even the more experienced. All 4 of us caught fish and we took home a few for dinner! John was great with the kids and very patient with all of us! A fun day or half day on the river - amazing scenery and wildlife! Thanks John & Heather! Oh and we loved their recommendation for lunch - Sackett's was wonderful!

“Great afternoon on the Kenai”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

We had a nice afternoon floating down the Kenai River. The fish were not biting, but we did end up catching four rainbow trout. John worked hard to get us into spots to catch fish. He was patient when our lines were crossed. He knew about some of the local fauna and history. Heather was very friendly and helpful in getting the whole thing set up and when she picked us up.

“Fantastic Day Fishing”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

What a great family run business. John is a wonderful guide. Regardless of level of expertise, he has the knowledge and patience to insure a great day of fishing and knows so much about the Kenai area. He is also very respectful towards the environment. His equipement is top notch with a wide varitey. Can't recommend this company enough.

“Wonderful float trip with my ten year old son.”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

My son loves to fish and this trip to Alaska was to be a father/son adventure. John and Heather Pearson helped make it the trip of a lifetime. Spoke with Heather several times before we arrived and she helped me get reserved and gave helpful advice about lodging and logistics!

John piled us into his drift boat and did a fabulous job of guiding us on the upper Kenai. We caught salmon, Dollys, and trout. In fact, my son caught his first trout on a fly that day. John was patient and entertaining even when we discovered that my son had left his lunch in our rental car!

The Pearsons get top marks from us!
