    Default Nearest lake trout lakes to Anchorage?

    Hi,

    Just moved to Anchortown from Fairbanks ...Where are the nearest lakes to Anchorage that have lake trout in them? Or second best, reasonably sized arctic char?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Long lake out of Palmer has a few lakers.

    You're smack in the middle of them. Long Lake as mentioned has some; its about 90 miles north of Anchorage. From there its another 85 miles or so to Lake Louise, famous for Lakers. Kenai Lake has some; its about 90 minutes South of Anchorage. Once there, its not very far to Hidden Lake or Skilak Lake, both also have lakers. Take your pick!

    Before taking any of my advice for granted on here research the legal ramifications thoroughly I am not the Troopers nor am I the Judge that will be presiding over your case/hearing. Please read the hunting and sportfishing regulations and feel free to interpret their meaning on your own.

    Trail lake right after the kenai junct on the Seward side. That has always produced some decent sized lakers.
