The Kenai River is one of the most heavily-fished rivers in Alaska. On average, it sees over 250,000 anglers a year. The Kenai is a glacial stream that drains the central Kenai Peninsula. It's upper reaches transiton from smooth, gentle, flowing water, to white water with a steep gradient through the Kenai Canyon, back to it's gentle fashion.
After flowing like this for 18 or so miles, the river dumps into Skilak Lake. After leaving the lake, the middle portion of this river follows a steep gradient with large boulders, and only experienced boaters should navigate this section. From here, it flows down to the community of Soldotna, and the river here is a much more gentle piece of water. The final 20 miles wind it's way down to the city of Kenai, with last 12 or so miles being tidally influenced. The section of river is extremely good for fly fishing.
With over 40 species of fish calling this river home, a fly angler will never get borded fishing this river.
