The Kenai river passes through the Kenai Canyon for a distance of about 2 miles in fast flowing rapids. The Russian River joins and pours into the Kenai River some several miles east of Cooper Landing. The Kenai enters Skilak Lake some 17.3 miles from the Kenai Lake. The section between the Kenai and Skilak is normally referred to as the “Upper River.” Another section known as the “Mid River” is located 19.5 miles from Skilak Lake downstream all the way to the Sterling Highway Bridge near a place called Soldotna. The last section which is 21 miles from the Sterling Highway Bridge to Cook Inlet the mouth is referred to as the “Lower River” where the river flows much gentler. The last 12 miles of the river is characterized by constantly changing tides.
