Hi Everyone, I'd love to hear your thoughts on where I should try to fish in the last week of May/first week of June. I'm taking my father on a dream trip for both of us and that's the only time slot that works.
We'd like to target both Halibut and Salmon and we're basically open to going anywhere (aside from one of the expensive lodges - simply don't have the budget). Right now I'm considering flying into Anchorage, renting a car and driving out the Kenai Peninsula to fish in a few spots - maybe the Kenai river, Homer, and somewhere else. This plan would also give us the chance to see the Peninsula a little bit, which we've always wanted to do. As I understand it, this area also allows for 2 halibut per day unlike SE Alaska (correct me if I'm wrong). Might be able to sneak in a day of razor clamming as well.
My second option would be to go somewhere like Sitka and just fish that one location for several days. Though I've read that late May might be a little early for SE Alaska.
Any other options worth considering? At this point, I'm completely open and really want to do everything possible to stack the fishing odds in our favor. We would also be using charter guides the whole time.
