Alaska: Kenai River

The 82-mile Kenai River is Alaska's most popular destination for sport fishing and widely considered one of the best rainbow trout fly fishing rivers in the world. Hundreds of thousands of visitors arrive annually to fish the glaciated waters for 14 game fish species that include all five species of Pacific salmon found in North American waters. The Kenai River's king salmon can reach 90 pounds; the world-record king salmon, weighing 97 pounds, was caught here in 1985. The river boasts straightforward boat and walk-in access and easy proximity to Anchorage.
