I was hoping that I could get some input on Kodiak fishing during the month of June. I moved to Alaska from Wyoming last fall to work for an engineering company in Anchorage. I am being sent (twist my arm a little ) to Kodiak from June 2 to July 9 to oversee some construction, and plan on packing in as much fishing as I can in my spare time (primarily evenings and weekends). I've been doing some research, and it sounds like I'll have some reds to bother on the Buskin and Pasagshak Rivers during this time. I'm guessing that will be enough to keep me busy, but I had a few other questions...
Is the Dolly fishing any good in June? I've read that May and July- are peak times, but was wondering if there are still enough fish around to pursue.
Do you think I could get by with hip boots (which I will have there for work anyway) or would you recommend full chest waders? I need to be efficient with my packing.
Is there any good king fishing (road accessible)? It sounds like the run to Monashka Bay is pretty small. I'm trying to determine if it's worth bringing some heavier gear.
Any other thoughts, suggestions, tips on Kodiak fishing during this time will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help.
