Rainbow Trout: Average 1-5 lbs. (22″-26″) with trophies up to 15 pounds (36″). Rainbow Trout season opens June 11 and closes November 1. Trout fishing is good all summer long with June, August, and September being the prime months.
Bag limits: Because the Rainbow Trout is a native breed (there are no stocked trout in the Kenai River) we enforce a policy of catch and release on all Rainbow Trout. Feel free to take as many photos as you can before we slip these majestic fish back into their home waters.
Rainbow Trout Fishing Techniques: Trout are fished from drift boats, power boats, and from shore with fly rods and spinning rods. Regulations require single hook, artificial lures. Flies, spinners, plugs all can be used to seduce trout into biting. Fly fishing is very effective.
