I have been working my butt off over the last week trying to determine where I might fish in Alaska. Good advice from alaskahippe pointed me in the direction of POW. He suggested I should try to hook up with locals in the area I've chosen. I've narrowed down the area to Thorne Bay, Klawok or Craig. I figure that if I can find somebody in any of these towns to discuss my plans, I can get started on putting my trip into place. I want to reside in one of the towns for 4/6 weeks and hire a vehicle and DIY fish the rivers and steams on foot. I expect that I can cover a large percentage of the island over the period. It would be great to have other fishermen with similar interests to fish with. Local knowledge sorts things out for newcomers quickly. I'll no doubt do a guided trip early in the piece to sort out techniques that I may need. If you are a POW resident I would love to hear from you.
