    Default Guide recommendation on the Kenai Peninsula

    I'm going to be on the peninsula during the middle of August. I would love to go on a half/full day guided trip for either silvers or rainbows (with the flyrod) with my father. Anyone have a recommendation for a good outfit that will take 2 fly fishermen and put them on fish (and teach them how to do it along the way)?

    Thank you.

    I'd second the D-Ray recommendation.

    Another vote for D-Ray. Cool guy and tons of knowledge. Also, checkout Alaska Angling Addiction as they are good guys and love to teach.

    Heard good things about Dan myself over the years. Trout fitters is a nice little fly shop in Cooper Landing. They do lots of guided floats on the Upper Kenai for bows/dollies and I've heard good things about their guides. That's a beautiful stretch of river, if your not against using beads. I've spent a few weeks there and plan to go back very soon. A day well spent, guaranteed. They have a good website with more info.

    Thanks for the information guys!
    What is the best section of the river to float in mid august for bows? I have heard the upper section is the most scenic, but is it good for bows this time of year?

    To answer your second question: yes.
