Figured I'd take advantage of our collective cabin fever to take a quick poll of people's favorite float trips in AK.
I find myself with the adequate time, funds, and fish-crazed friends and just enough rafting and wilderness skills to go BIG this summer/fall on a remote, unguided float trip. Looking for a few "best" options on a river and timeframe. Our primary interest is rainbows - particularly big (>5 lbs) bows or those willing to take flies on the swing or topwater. Fresh kings or silvers or steelhead could also work. We've already covered the Kenai and other KP streams, the Parks Highway, Gulkana, Situk, Alagnak, Ivishak and the Kodiak road system - and they all can be great - but I'm looking for a few new options. After pouring through the guidebooks and this forum, my preliminary thoughts include the Kanektok or, closer to home, upper Clear Creek or the Tal.
If you had a week with your buddies to fish anywhere in AK, where would you go?
All opinions welcome -- thanks guys
