Do you want to catch a 15 pound rainbow trout? Of course you do. Most people fishing in the lower 48 dream of a 15 pound rainbow trout. As they say, everything is bigger in Alaska, and Rainbows are no different. Fishing for Rainbow trout on the Kenai, is totally different than fishing for Kings; you use different techniques, bait, and even fish on a different part of the river. So, if you get tired of fishing for Kings, Rainbow are a great option, and are biting, basically, all summer long.
Best time of the year: Middle June and Late August through September
Fishing Limits: We believe in catch and release policy for trout on the Kenai River.
