    Default Where should I go fishing this weekend

    So, I've been getting skunked lately. Where should I go that I can for sure catch some fish. Salmon would be great but I'd settle for some good trout fishing. I'm willing to make a drive. Currently in anchorage. Checked out Crooked Creek this last weekend but no luck. The fish were there, saw a lot of jumpers but after 4 hours of fishing I only saw 1 angler catch a fish.

    The only place/s I would be willing to say that you can "for sure catch fish" is in the salt water, or sneak into a hatchery and poach them.

    I'd hit the Russian River for the red salmon opener (opens on the 11th). It remains to be seen whether opening day will be good or not, but there should be some fish to cast to.

    Russian no doubt! Get right in there...make sure you have rhe right gear and know what you are doing. Not cool driving all that way to find out you don't have string enough line, right weights or gear.

    It's fairly easy limits of sockeyes (1-2 hour of fishing) along the banks of the Kenai above river mile 15 right now. My cousin hooked 20 in 2 hours the other morning. She had her limit in 15 minutes and hooked and released after that. The people with her took a bit longer, but the fish are hitting good right now.

    Like Max stated, the Kenai has lots of reds in it.
