    Default How many species have you caught this year?

    I'm far from the best fisherman out there - but here lately it's been all I do every weekend.

    I've compiled the list of species I've caught this year in Alaska.


    Rainbow Trout
    Dolly Varden
    Sockeye Salmon
    Starry Flounder
    Irish Lord
    Ooligan
    Pink Salmon
    Northern Pike
    Chum Salmon
    Silver Salmon
    Halibut
    Ling Cod

    I'd love to see others lists, and am also VERY interested in suggestions to fill out my list before the end of the fishing season.
    I know I'm missing several "easy to catch" species - but just haven't had the chance or haven't been to the right places.

    Go to whittier and fish the deep waters from shore with bait. You'll triple your list lol. Grayling isn't hard to get either for trout fishers.

    I've only caught halibut. For salmon I just hang out at the harbor like a hooker when the fleet comes in and usually get all the salmon I need.
    Now what ?

    Not that bad for my first year fly fishing in Alaska without using guides or charters I think.
    A bad day fishing is still better than a good day at work.
