WELCOME TO
ALASKA CLEARWATER SPORTFISHING SINCE 1985

Outstanding Fly Fishing on the Kenai River

I invite you to join us in the canyon section of the Upper Kenai River.  We are dedicated to the fly rod for Trophy Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, Sockeye Salmon, and Silver Salmon.   Fly fishing is much more than the act of catching a fish.  Learn techniques that create natural therapy for the entire family.  This remote section of the river runs through a National Wildlife Refuge where the wildlife thrives and commercial use is limited.  Allow me to show you the fly fishing experience of a lifetime!

Flyfishing Trips

Wisdom starts with the proper knowledge passed down by a teacher.  I consider myself a teacher of fly fishing.  Therefore, you can expect an experience with a fly fishing guide that is tuned in.

“Zack, I wanted to thank you for your years of exceptional service and the product you provide. It may seem odd to call your fishing experiences a “product” but let me explain. I have fished with you over the past five years both in Alaska and in Florida. We have fished with a number of different groups of my friends and family who have different fishing skills. Each and every time we experienced a trip that can only be described as a “Trip of a lifetime”. Your experience and passion for fly fishing are contagious, your mentoring is encouraging and your equipment is top of the line. You have crafted each and every trip to meet the needs of the customers in your boat and for this I thank you. “Keep fishing great waters well”.

Kurt Hallier

“I have had the opportunity to fish with Capt Zack on multiple occasions and have had some of the most memorable fishing days of my life with him – from catching multiple Snook at East Cape, huge Tarpon on the fly at Bahia Honda, Giant Rainbow Trout in Kenai Alaska, and most recently Bonefish on the fly in Andros Bahamas. Zack is a knowledgeable guide but perhaps even more important a genuinely kind and friendly person. He’s not one to make you feel poorly for “blowing out” a monster tarpon or bonefish because you blew your cast – instead he coaches you so you do better next time. Also noteworthy is that his boats ( both in Alaska and in the Florida Keys ) and equipment are very good. He knows the right fly too!!”
