So this is my first summer in AK, and I can't wait to go salmon fishing. I had planned to play around in ship creek this weekend and start trying my novice (and I can't stress novice enough) luck. But then I found out a future co-worker is going to be in town this weekend, so now I'm considering heading down to the lower Kenai. I know that in both places the Kings are just trickling in but was wondering if one place or the other might have advantages for a newbie?
Also, are there any particularly good books out there for learning how to fish for salmon in AK rivers?
