help needed for silvers using a fly rod in Valdez?
I will be in Valdez visiting an Alaska friend of mine the last week of August.
I know that he trolls for silver salmon in Prince William Sound from his 28 foot boat.
I am interested in trying to catch silvers using my fly rods.
Any suggestion how I might try this from his boat?
He has a raft where he could put me on shore near a stream while he went trolling but I need a suggestions for a location.
Are there any rivers that I could access from the Richardson Hwy where I could try my luck for the silvers?
Any help would be appreciated.
Couple of fun things.
First you can catch Silvers incomine and outgoing tides off Allison Point with a fly rod, spinners and roe all work and all are fun. I find the incoming tide better but again that is my opinion and not necessarily the best time just what I like to do. When I go I fish bright green tandem flies seems to work well always weighted and always stripped.
Rivers on the way down little limited the Tonsina has a reasonable run of fish and your timing is not bad.
Couple years back sent a friend down with similar flies they fished them out of a zodiak and did fine. If your in Fairbanks stop by the shop I will give you a couple of samples to use no money just some free flies.
Have fun and tight lines.
