fishing around anchorage
Im headed down to anchorage on the 13th of july. I don't know where to fish around there. either good salmon rivers with road access or salmon river fishing charters within a short drive of anchorage. I will only have one day to fish so cant really do the trial and error thing I usually do.
Honestly, mid July won't do you any justice if you want to catch salmon around Anchorage. Mostly because of the timings, but also because areas can be real hit or miss that do have fish. Although I'm not too knowledgeable, your best bet for salmon would be kings at the tail race (note that it will be very difficult), since Ship Creek kings will be closed and it's been real spotty recently anyways. I think if you really want to rip lips, then you'll have to travel a few hours out of the Anchorage bowl.
