My family and I moved to Palmer in 2015, about 10 miles south of Hatcher Pass off of Palmer Fishhook Rd. I was out of town for a lot of the year and have not been able to go out fishing much. My daughter has asked if we could do some lake fishing but I don't know too many of the lakes in the area. We do not have a boat, so fishing from the shore is what we plan on doing. We went down to Matanuska Lake with my daughter catching the only fish of the day (about 4-5" trout, not sure why that thing even took the lure).
Can anyone shed some light on good fishing lakes? I am usually home from work by 5 PM on weekdays and can fish those evenings. Weekends are more flexible on distances as I work M-F.
Thanks for any help/advice you can give me.
