Hi everybody, newbie here that is asking for some help. Great forum with a ton if info (I never realized Alaska was so diverse)
I'm heading to Whittier Alaska first week of August coming from Vancouver. I'm interested in staying at a lodge for 2-3 days for some fresh water fishing. From what I read we basically have to make it to Anchorage first as a jumping off point. I understand that salt water fishing is huge but out here in Manitoba, Canada I'm an avid angler and freshwater is my thing, so if a true hawg is landed it would mean much more to me. First on the species list would be Lake trout then Pike but also would love a chance at a grayling or Char. I fish a lot so would need a legitimate chance at a 40"+ laker or 45"+ Pike. Does anybody have any input on possible areas or lodges to start looking into? By no means do we need to be pampered or have 5 star service. We just need something clean with good fishing and want to experience the wilderness of Alaska. Thanks for any feed back you can offer.
