Does the fishing pressure let up later in the summer? Sounds like a lot of combat fishing for Kings early on. Was wondering if it is still shoulder to shoulder when the Silver salmon run. I love to fish, but hate crowds (used to the wide open spaces in MT and WY). I'm still a non-resident and don't know if I can stomach the extra $100 for a King Salmon tag. Will try to target Silvers later on.
Can you escape the pressure if you have a boat? I recently bought a 15' zodiac with a 35 hp prop. Plan to take the kids out on the lakes, but would really love to take them after some silver salmon later on. Any advice so I can start planning would be appreciated. I live in the Eagle River area.
