Okay, I'm looking for some insight as to the 'best' fishing options wk of Aug 6 for family with 3 teens.
I thought we had everything pretty much laid out but Momma pulled out the map last night and had at least 4 or 5 reroute possibilities before I decided to go to bed. I figured I best rest up 'cause whatever the outcome, it would require lots of energy on my part to pick up all the pieces.
Here's the deal.... We're in an RV and will be coming down from Fairbanks and have to wind up in Seward within about ~4ish days of travel time. Among the glacier trips and hiking, we would like to catch some fish... sockeye would be cool, bright pinks would be great, bows would be fun too. If we could bring home a couple, that's okay...If we C&R, that's okay too. But bringing a few home, we can share with family/friends.
During this timeframe, Aug ~6-10, where do you anticipate will be the 'hottest' area or at least one where we can catch some fish. I don't really have a good feel for all the creek names and river systems, so the run reports and peak predictions all seem to blur together so it makes it tough to figure out the right 'timing' to ensure we're in the right spot for best success.... AK has a BUNCH of different options and when you combine the week to week variation...whew....!
Basically we will be fishing spinners and spoons due to lack of experience and know how with everything else. Also, do not have a boat.
I've got to get this itenerary out of the ditch and back on the road.
