    Default Roadside fishing on Sterling Hwy

    Hey Guys,

    Have about a whole day to kill driving from Anchorage to Soldotna the first weekend in Sept. I have the book "Highway Angler" and have read some other stuff that suggests that Quartz Creek might be a good place to spend some time on the way down. Any other suggestions for salmon or trout?

    There are a couple of spots you can walk into the kenai and fish for bows and dollies with good success off the road.

    Also hidden lake trail is about 2 mile hike off skilak lake road but it has some great fishing below the canyon. BEWARE though. There are alot of big brown and black fuzzy critters running around that trail.

    If you just have a day though Quartz is a solid bet with easy access and good fishing

    thanks Chuck,

    We'll be doing two floats on the upper Kenai and one on the Middle in addition to a couple of flyouts for silvers, so was looking for something that doesn't take a lot of effort, but good enough to break up the drive for a few hours. Thinking Quartz might be the answer. Do you expect it would be crowded on a Sunday afternoon?

    nah it should not be two bad on sunday. Saturdays down there is the nutt house for sure. There are about 4 or 5 pull offs along side the road that runs next to Quartz. Easy access to work alot of holes. There are some brown fuzzies down there so make noise. If your looking for a easy access, good chance to catch fish, without breaking the bank or putting out a ton of effort and to enjoy a pretty easy day outdoors quartz will fit the bill for sure
