    Default What should I be Fishing for from 7/24- 8/6

    So this is my one chance to live the dream. I won't get another Alaska fishing adventure opportunity for who knows how long. This is my situation.
    Location: We will be centrally located in Anchorage
    Date: From july 24 to Aug 6, 2012
    Driving Range: About 4 hrs or 200 or so miles.
    Type of Fishing: Freshwater fly fishing, River, salmon and trout.
    Budget: As cheap as possible. Just want to drive, get out, maybe hike a little and fish for salmon and trout.

    Questions:

    1.So where do I go?
    2. What fish would be most productive to fish for in that time period?
    3. Do you have any fly suggestions?

    Any help would be great. It seems that a lot of local talent is on this forum that know the area.Thanks.

    Pinks and grayling! Denali highway (brushkana creek, rock creek, tangle lakes area) pretty much any creek on the highway yeilds nice grayling and fun times for sure and its beautiful up there. Then head up to valdez and floss reds on the klutina, then push on to valdez and fish the worlds largest pink fishery. Its a blast!

    The above advice is pretty solid. I would also take a trip down to the Kenai to fish for red salmon and rainbow trout. By late in your trip the salmon should be hitting the upper stretches of the river and the rainbow fishing should be picking up.

    agreed kenai is the best destination, mostly because of all the fishing oportinities along the way, bird creek, glacier creek, ingram creek, Hope, jerome lake, quartz creek. do your research and you will have a great trip before you even hit the kenai. these creeks are very accessible and some are good camping options.
