My wife and I are heading to Alaska, mostly tent camping, the first half of June (4-15). We've read many books, including the Highway Angler but still have some questions. We like to explore and don't have hard, fixed itinerary.
1) King Salmon fishing (Kenai area) One Day:
a. any suggestions on guides and locations2) For non king fishing, we plan on fishing lakes and streams in Kenai and also heading from Anchorage to Denali NP.
b. Do I have to book the guide months in advanced or can I expect to be able to call a day or two ahead
a. What pound test?
b. Lures or bait (and what types of bait)
c. Should we bring our hip waders?
d. Are boats needed or is shore fishing successful also
3) Do we need to book campground reservations in Kenai and Mat-Su or is there usually adequate availability.
