I don't see any hints of commercial seining going on this coming weekend, so we're planning on taking our family of SIX (ages 7, 10, 10, 15, won't tell, won't tell) down to Allison Pt for a bit of shoreline pink salmon fishing ...should be awesome fun for the kids (oh, and me). Haven't been down there before, so here's a couple of Q's:
- We're driving down from Fairbanks after work on Friday, camping near Glenallen Friday night, planning on camping at Allison Pt campground on Saturday night ...do we need to worry about finding a spot to camp? Or should we make reservations at one of the other campgrounds?
- People keep mentioning bears in that area but no reports of serious problems. Do people carry bear protection while fishing? We've got both guns and pepper spray. What about cooking/camping? We'll be in a tent and the adults will sleep in the van w/camper pads. Cook a long way from camp, wash and bag everything, then camp away from food? Keep the cooler inside the (closed) van? Are people cooking in the campground and possibly causing issues?
- Any hints on where we should fish, how to find the spot, or what to use would be appreciated ...PM or post here (thanks)
