My wife and I will be on Prince of Wales Island the last week in May. Our plan is to visit Hollis, Craig, Klawock, Thorne Bay, Coffman Cove and Whale Pass while we are there. I will bring along a spinning rod and am thinking about bringing my 7 weight fly rod with floating line as well. There are several problems with that, the biggest being that I know almost nothing about fly fishing! Iím not even novice level.
Iíd appreciate anyoneís thoughts/guidance who has a knowledge of POW and fly fishing. Will there be opportunities to catch fish in streams there the last week in May, and if so, should the 7 weight work? Will floating line work, if so what should I look for as far as flies or streamers? Should I bring sinking line too?
Iím going in blind, so any help would be very much appreciated. Donít be afraid to say that I should stick to the spinning rod or just stay dry and eat berries!
