I am making my first visit to Alaska this 7/22. I plan on starting North on the Parks HWY, at Montanna creek, working my way south, to Sweard. I have 8 days. I would like to catch as many species as I can, specifically, a grayling, Bow, Dolly, Chum, sockeye and a pink if posisble. I have heard all options for Kings will be pretty much done and Silvers won't be in. Does anyone know if there are particular rivers that are better than others for some of the hard to find fishj, like the chum, grayling and pinks along this route? Also my plan for Dolly's and Char is to hit the russian and Quartz greek is that a good plan?
