Hi guys, the boyfriend and I will be in AK the last week of August and first week of September, and I'm interested in trying the Anchor for steelies and silvers, which I have never done. I'm just looking for general advice, links, tips, whatever you know. I'm trying to figure out if it's worth a trip down, I'm only in AK for 11 days so if I have a good chance of getting skunked or only catching 1 fish I'd rather go elsewhere.
For trout, is it primarily a bead fishery? Will a 9' rod cut it or do I want a switch? Is it better to fish an incoming tide or is that just for silvers? What do I want for water conditions, and can I look up cfs or something for the Anchor?
For silvers is there any particular pattern or is it like most silvers and you just fish pink....
Will it be crowded that time of year on a weekend, should I try to hit it on a weekday?
I'm doing a fair amount of my own research but I like hearing personal experiences. Thanks a bunch guys
