My first post/thread. I am a lower 48 denizen that works in the Seward charter fishery during the summers. I've had limited success with fishing for dollies/rainbows in the Seward area and I would like some advice for this upcoming summer.
My transportation is limited and very unreliable so I am stuck in about a 5-10mile range of Seward up the Seward Hwy.
I've attempted fishing in a few of the lakes near Seward: Bear Lake, Grayling, Meridian, Troop and I have had some success, but they are a bit outside my driving range. I was wondering if the local rivers/creeks have any rainbows or dollies. I do mostly just catch and release unless they are foul hooked.
I was wondering about Lost Creek, Salmon Creek, and Bear Creek. Does anyone know if rainbows exist in these waters? I have done some extensive searching online and have not found any valid information about bows in any of these waters, but again they are all very small. Also, if anyone has any advice for other Creeks/Rivers near Seward that support Bow populations, or Dollies, please let me know. After working on the ocean all day I like to sit back and fish ultra-light tackle for the small ones, I get tired of batting 'butts, ling, and rockies.
Most people just drive an hour further for the Kenai, but I do not have that luxury.
