Well I drove up the Alcan Hwy and fished all the way up and part of the way back. Also rented a raft on Gulkana tried all the local set ups and low a behold got skunked, river was high and saw only three fish taken in a 10 hr period. So all I can say right now about Alaska interior rivers is they are no better and no worse than western Washington Rivers. as for the dreams of cathing a 30+ lb salmon I guess I should have went on down to the kenai. did some good in Yukon on Lk Kulane though!! Still have not caught a Grayling seems they like flies and not any of the spinners or even an egg below a bobber. well will have to wait until my next trip to the great north!! expectations where definatly not met.
on another note did catch a 39 lb king out of the samish river down here!!!!!!
