My family and I had booked an all-day fly fishing excursion with Alaska Troutfitters. Sadly a few days before the trip my mother in law had a stroke and we have to cancel and head back to PA. I called and spoke to Anne and explained the situation. Anne was very gracious and understanding, she refunded the price for our... More

Each year I try to spend one day in the fall with my favorite fishing guide, Billy Couillette of Troutfitters from Cooper Landing. We fish the middle Kenai River below Skilak Lake, not far from where I live. This year didn't disappoint. We caught probably 15 rainbows that were 5# or bigger on fly rods and each person in the...

We stopped in to Alaska Troutfitters stop/office to pick up some fishing tackle and check out their guide services. People we spoke with were knowledgable and accommodating. We booked a half day of drift fishing on the Kenai River. I had not fly fished before and neither of us had drift fished. You are in a boat that gets put... More

A friend in Oregon recommended that I fish with Alaska Troutfitters. I took a full day float trip with Jeff on day 1, and a 1/2 day float on day 2 with the other Jeff. Both trips were fantastic, very informative and helpful guides that provided excellent gear for catching HUGE trout. On both days our boat seemed to be... More

Decided to do a drift trip down the upper Kenai after talking with one of the Troutfitter customers. We were not disappointed. We took a half day trip and got Rainbows and Dolly Varden. Our guide was well prepared, his equipment was first rate and he knew how to catch fish. We'd do it again. Ask for Jeff.

I have been using Troutfitters since 2006. They are the best guide service on the river. My dad and I have always caught fish, had great company and learned a lot. I have my own boat and house in Cooper Landing, but enjoy having their guides show me the best way to fish the river, protect the fishery, and experience... More

I took my wife on her first fly fishing drift boat trip. The owner Dusty was very accommodating. And our guide Jeff was very patient and helpful with my wife.

I called the fly shop 6 months before my trip to Alaska. I talked to Rob and told him where I was fishing. He then sent me some flies that will work where I would be fishing. I told him I tie my own flies and had no idea what to tie. He sent me about 12 different flies and... More
