    Default Anchorage to Valdez

    I'm traveling to salmon canneries in AK this month looking at equipment we lease and thie weekend will be picking up a car in Anchorgae and driving to Valdez.
    I actually have a couple extra days and looking for suggestions on where to have some fun fly fishing in that direction.
    Carrying my 8 wt.
    Thanks

    Klutina, Gulkana, and Tonsina rivers all should have a little action for Reds.

    Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught.

    You might find some Dollies in the Robe Rive fly fishing only area. Nothing else is in right now. Lowe is flooded with glacial silt. You can not fish salmon in any of the streams.

    Smile HIghway Angler

    You might check the "Highway Angler" for salmon run timing and access. Reds and maybe Kings will be in the Klutina, Gulkana, and maybe Gakona. There are also a number of trout, dolly, and grayling spots along the way as well. It is a beautiful drive as well.

    Mendeltna Creek for Grayling.
