Alaska Trout and Steelhead Fishing
Spectacular Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden and Steelhead Fishing
The guides of Great Alaska Adventure Lodge, targeting our surrounding rivers, consistently produce some of Alaska's most impressive Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden catches. Our trout season opens in mid June, with the best fishing in August and September. As they are a delicate resident species, we practice catch and release on all Trout species. Vying with the Kings for label of “most popular sport fish in Alaska”, the Rainbow combines with our excellent Silver Salmon for great late-season angling right up until the end of September. 2-20 pounds. Alaska Trout Fishing is great at Great Alaska Adventure Lodge!
The waters we fish
Depending upon weather and water conditions, time of year and a variety of other factors, beginning in mid June, we’ll fish over 60 miles of the amazing Kenai River to produce great variety, good numbers and outstanding individual specimens. For many of our returning fly fishermen, the August and September time frame cannot be surpassed. Sockeye, Silver and (on even years) Pink salmon combine with Trophy Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden to make some truly astounding sport fishing. September adds our beautiful steelhead fishery for some very fine steelhead fishing, as well.
All this terrain means lots of areas for the trout to hide...and with the Kenai's two lakes providing literally hundreds of miles of shoreline and miles of spawning water, our home river is uniquely able to produce really outstanding, native wild trout....and these amazing trout inhabit every inch of it. Each day you may find yourself exploring a new area that just became "the hot spot" a few days earlier...and could change back just as quickly! Our guides are on these stretches of water every day, and we have been doing it for over 25 years, constantly changing colors, presentations and exploring every possible nuance that might mean the trophy on the end of your line. We have been licensed operators in the "limited Entry" areas of the upper Kenai Wildlife Refuge for decades as well.
While fly anglers certainly covet the big trout, spin fishermen feel the same way, and spinning rods give up nothing, targeting the largest of the trout and silver salmon as well from both our power and drift boats. Combined with the lovely changing colors, crisp fall air and nearing end of season, August and September is one of our favorite times to be at Great Alaska Adventure Lodge!
