Hey all I just moved up here from the chicago area. I'm trying to find a good lake for trout. I don't know how to fly fish and after reading this forum I think I'm going to have to learn. I live on the south side of anchorage and I'm looking for a good hole to drop some powerbait in. I was at jewel lake this morning and didn't even get a whiff. I've seen the site that tells me which lakes are stocked. I'm just wondering if any lakes are better than others. I'm looking for a place close to the house where I can catch a few for dinner. Thanks for checking out this thread and any advice is appreciated.
