My wife and I are spending the last week of July in Alaska and I am researching places I can fish from shore. I am not particular as to what type of fish I catch. Will not be keeping any. Just want to have my string pulled.
We will be spending a couple of days in Hope and I was considering going to Valdez and spending the remainer of our week there. I know that the pinks are good in Hope on even years but I fished there a couple of years ago and liked it so much I want to spend some time there even if the pinks are not there in great numbers. Just a great place to relax. My questions are:
1. Do the pinks show up in good numbers in Valdez, even on odd years?
2. How is the halibut fishing in Valdez? Seems that Homer is the best
place to go, but we don't have time to go both to Homer and Valdez
and I can fish for pinks while at Valdez.
3. I would appreciate a referral for a good Valdez halibut guide.
4. How would the halibut fishing in Valdez be different than in Homer?
Have to go further out? Smaller fish?, etc.
I have found this forum to be a great help for people like us who need a little help. Everyone has been most helpful and I would appreciate any replys you could offer.
Thanks in advance.
