    Get a Milepost, rent a car big enough to sleep in, and spend a week or so driving the road system. Opportunities will present themselves.
    Be ready.

    Look at tangle lakes. There will be hunters most every where there are wildlife near the road system that time of year so remember that Alaska Law requires you not to interfere with any hunt in progress. Give them a wide birth and enjoy the scenery.

    Default kayak lakes

    the Kenai canoe trails system is a good choice for getting away from the crowds. Many of the lakes are seldom visited. I know of some great places to spend a few hours or a week long trip with good chances at wildlife and very few if any other people around.
    Although the desgnated trails encompass over 120 miles of interconnected trails and lakes, there are hundreds of other lakes in this area that can be reached. I use kayaks more and more for getting into these lakes. I can carry a inflatable kayak and then when I reach a lake, pump it up and get to paddling and fishing,,
    look at a map of the Kenai wildlife refuge and you will see literally hundreds of lake and river options.

    The Nancy lakes area is great.. Lots of options and places to get away from the tourist crowds.

    When you come to a fork in the trail, take it!

    How good is the fishing in say the Nancy Lakes area and what type and size of fish could one expect to catch there in late June-August? Thanks.

    What Jim said....

    It's pretty much every commercial service along every major road and route in and to Alaska.
    You'll find it invaluable for road trippin the Great Land.

    Food, gas, gear, cheap showers, beer, kayaks, fishing spots, campgrounds, trails - it's all in there. Just not necessarily in that order...

    Get it before you visit. It will help a LOT with planning a veritable smorgashboard of DIY adventure. Vital gear. Mission critical.

    You are probably gonna want The Big Red Book too...

    I have a copy of "The Big Red Book" copyright 1992. Do you guys think it is current enough? Thanks for all the help.

    "Current enough" is kind of a broad question...but it should be fine. Landforms and rivers aren't gonna change too much in 15 years.
    You can always update it here if you really feel the need. No sales tax in Anchorage.
    Believe me, you can buy Anything you want in Anchorage...
