About Kenai River Recon

Kenai River Recon LLC is veteran owned and operated by Sean Smart. Sean spent his childhood on the Kenai Peninsula fishing the Kenai River and surrounding lakes. After high school, he served in the Army. That took him away from Alaska for 6 years while he traveled the world. Realizing how much he missed his home state, he moved back to the “GREATLAND”. Soon he found himself consumed with fishing, particularly fly-fishing. Fishing has taken him to some unique and remote places, whether in Alaska or somewhere tropical. Now he’s living out his dream, guiding full time and sharing his passion with visitors and locals alike.
