Hi gang, new member here from Maine. My wife and I are headed your way end of July. We will be staying with friends in Wasilla. I have been lurking here for a few months now, just trying to get my bearings, and absorb some info before our trip.
It was ten years ago when we first visited your beautiful state, a short but great stay in Juneau.
I have been studying up on the fishing opportunities in the South Central area, and am starting to get feel for the lay of the land so to speak. I purchased the book Alaska Fishing by Limeres and Pedersen, and a Delorme Atlas. Good stuff.
The information available on the 'net seems to have no end. How the heck did we ever plan a fishing trip to a new frontier prior to the internet?
Your state freshwater regs are initially overwhelming. I thought the Maine regs were complicated, but not anymore .
As the time draws near, I will surely have some questions for you all as it relates to the fishing. I will be hitting the more popular road accessible creeks, and hope to tangle with my first silver salmon. Rainbows and dollys will be on the agenda as well. I plan to flyfish for the most part, but will have spinning gear as well. We will road trip for a few days to Seward and Homer, and hope to fish along the way. My Google Earth map looks like a pin cushion with all the placemarks I have been plotting for areas of interest .
Anyhow, thanks for a great site, and looking forward to vacation!!
