Alaska rainbow trout fishing is one of the most rewarding and thrilling an angler will experience by far. The Kenai River's environment is very favorable to rainbow trout because of the vast number of salmon that swim through the state’s rivers every summer. Rainbows flood in and fatten up on the flesh and eggs of spawning salmon. The Kenai Peninsula offers an abundance of rainbow trophies for those looking to experience the thrill of challenging this majestic, hard fighting fish.
