Had a great time fishing with John. He was very knowledgeable of the Kenai. Caught lots of bows and dollies. Not a great time for silvers. Although we did manage to hook 3, we were only able to land one. I certainly enjoyed my trip and would love to do it again. If I do, it will be with the Kenai River Drifter's Lodge.

HANDS DOWN best river guide service in Alaska! It was a very personalized / 'catered to' experience! I have fished with 3 different guides from Drifter's, and each of them were very seasoned, professional, and provided an experience that I will remember for a very long time!

Our afternoon drift on the Kenai was just great. All four of us were new the fly fishing. I thing our guide was James, from Anchorage and saving to visit Asia with is girlfriend. He provided patient instruction and assisted us throughout the 5-hour journey to the Russian River boat ramp. If I return, or when I return, I will be sure to make another outing with Drifter's!!! In fact, I plan to stay in one of your nice cabins! Thanks

The wife and I chose this fall to drift the Kenai River with Drifters Lodge for our 30th anniversary. Drifter's was gracious enough to offer a discounted trip as we wanted the whole boat to our selves for the special day. They also threw in a free lunch to help us celebrate. We drifted from Sportsman's to Jim's Landing twice that day and we probably caught 30 fish a piece on both runs. We wore our arms out pulling in rainbows and dolly's. Drifter's is very knowledgeable about the Kenai and also very personable when it come... read more

Mattie was pleasant and knew how to catch fish. We had a full boat of fisherman with various levels of proficiency. He handled it all with grace and helped everyone have a good time

I've been at Drifter's Lodge multiple times and it's always been a great experience. The staff is helpful, friendly, and the managers clearly must be treating them well. I've worked in hospitality before and could not find anything to critique. I appreciate the campfire, free pre-cut firewood, and memory foam mattress toppers. I would hug everyone who works at this lodge if it was socially appropriate. Perhaps it is.
