    Check out finger lake in Wasilla/Palmer. Also the Denali highway & Tangle lakes are the bomb for grayling. Also the Parks highway streams.

    Hi there Salty, welcome to the forum and glad to see you've made Alaska your Holiday destination.
    I would suggest a "fly-out " trip. several good spots are available for just the day or if so inclined stay a couple days camping out. Rental gear is available.
    You will thus experience the real Alaska.

    hi roland, have considered a fly out trip but never got round to it. is it expensive? ie on par with halibut or king trip. do you need a guide with you as we wont be armed except with bells and pepper spray. ther is so mush places to fish with not enough time, good excuse to come back again next year.

    Finger Lake is reached via Bogard road. You can take Palmer Wasilla hwy to Trunk rd and that crosses Bogard about 2 miles from the entrance to the campground.

    Call Talon Air at 907=262-8899 or Alaska West Air 907-776-5147. On some trips the pilot/guide stays with you all day.On other trips such as an overnight you'll be on your own. If you have been hit by lightning before you might have a Bear encounter. What I mean by that is it's a very remote chance of even seeing a Bear.

    Cost can vary with distance flown. Split cost with members of YOUR party or shared with other people. Some trips as inexpensive as $300.00 per person." Fish now as you'll run out of health before you run out of money."
