    Go to Seymore Lake out by Rainbow. Large rainbows and easy public access. ON some older maps it is called Herning Lake. Visnaw and Rainbow are OK as well, but not quite as good. You will not go back to Finger Lake after trying the lakes around Meadow Lakes Region. Go to Mile 49 of the Parks Hwy and go north.

    Default Some other mat su options...

    Knik lake on knik goose bay road is a guaranteed bet for some pretty big rainbows and char. its the lake right next to knik bar, when you pull into the bar parking lot, if you look straight across the lake, you will see a point coming out into the lake, anywhere around that point about 25 feet from shore is guaranteed action!! ive fished this lake for about ten years now and ive never been disappointed.

    I can't say that the other lakes mentioned aren't good or better than Finger Lake but I wouldn't totally discount it. This is a nice fish pulled from Finger Lake just after the ice went out this past spring. I know one fish doesn't make it a wonderful place but there have been others this size possibly larger that have been taken as well.

    I live a mile from Knik lake and have fished it since 1984. I don't think I've ever seen or heard of a char coming out of that lake. While I have caught some large rainbows, the predominant population these days are stocked salmon. You'll pull 8-10 inch silvers all day long in the wintertime, but it can be a chore to find decent rainbows.

    I'm pretty sure the pike were an old wives tale. I've never seen one come out of there. With the huge number of small landlocked salmon they stock, if there were pike they would absolutely thrive.
