I will be in Anchorage for 5 or 6 days starting july 7th before heading out on a float trip. I would like to do some fishing while in the area and am looking for any info on where to go. I will have some wheels and camping gear and no set schedual. Any advice would be appreciated. Ive been reading a lot of your info but Im not ssure where all the rivers are in relation to Anchorage.
Russian River is 2 hours south of Anchorage
Homer is 4 hours south.
Anchor is about 3:40 south of Anc. or 20 min north of Homer.
Middle Kenai is 2 1/2 to 3 hours south of Anc.
Upper Kenai is 2 hours south.
you should be able to catch the first start of the silver and pink run down in Bird Creek, about 20 minute drive south from city center. Hopefully the run will yield better results than the King run this year.
Thanks for the info. much appreciated.
