    Default Fishing lower to interior Alaska.

    Im planning a trip from Anchorage to Cantwell to Paxson to Glenallen and then back to Anchorage. Any fishing tip for that area?

    You need to give out a little more info. Timing is everything in Alaska. How long are you going to spend. Are you taking any type of boat/raft? Do you want to fish for grayling, lake trout, salmon or what? Are you fly fishing or using a spinning rod? Do you plan on staying at one of the lodges?

    Excellent fishing for Arctic grayling on the Denali Highway. Several lakes along the way will have lake trout and burbot also. That's the only area i have first hand knowledge of.

    Good luck! Sounds like a fun trip.

    Definately... that book is the Alaskan Fishermans Bible as far as i'm concerned. Even for a seasoned fisherman, it always provides something new... good luck and "fishon"...

    I'm going in the begging of August, spending 10 days, fishing for anything that bites spin cast, and just walking along streams and lakes no boats. No just tent camping probably.

    You might be able to catch some nice silvers around that time of the year if they are in!

    Delta Clear Water park is a wonderful spot to spend a day or two. Great spot to camp and the fishing is great as well!!
