Fly Fishing for Trout on the Kenai Peninsula for over 30 years.

Alaska Trout Guides is owned and operated by Josh Hayes.  Hayes is a third generation Alaskan and a year round resident of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula.  With over 30 years of personal fly fishing experience on the Kenai River you are guaranteed to fish with one of the most experienced and diligent guides on the river.  

With unequalled attention to detail and trip expectations Alaska Trout Guides can make your Alaska fly fishing dreams come true.  In order to provide the best fishing for our clients Alaska Trout Guides fish out of modern 20 foot drift boats and power boats – providing access to all 82 river miles of the Kenai River.  

Because fishing “Home Water” is the key to knowing a piece of water intimately Alaska Trout Guides employs only local Alaskans.  We are a small, locally owned and operated guide service with one goal in mind - Making your trip of a lifetime live up to your highest expectations.


Trophy Rainbow Trout  

Alaska Trout Guides specialize in fly fishing Alaska’s Kenai River for trophy Rainbow Trout.  

The Kenai River Rainbow Trout are in a league of their own and every year the glacial green waters of the Kenai produce more fly caught Rainbow Trout over 30 inches than ANY other river in the world.  

Many of the larger Kenai River Rainbows crush the scales at over twenty pounds - providing an extreme challenge for even the most experienced fly angler.  

Take the Trip of a Lifetime 

Home Water Advantage

We fish every day, know where the fish are, and when they are most likely to cooperate.  

By remaining flexible, and willing to relocate, our clients enjoy unrestricted access to the entire river and thus the best possible fishing each day.  

Our goal is to exceed your wildest expectations while out working and outperforming the competition.

Salmon Fishing on the Fly

In addition to the truly legendary Rainbow Trout the Kenai River hosts four of five Pacific Salmon species as well as an overwhelmingly healthy population of  Dolly Varden - which at the right time of year can produce daily fish numbers of up to 200 fish per person.

 If you are searching for a river with the largest Rainbow Trout as well as unfathomable numbers of feeding fish, the Kenai River is your fly fishing Mecca. If you are looking for the trip of a lifetime look no further.
