    wait your fiance actually got you to agree on a fishing honeymoon? uh, do you have a sister? LOL just kidding (in case my wife reads this)
    I'd make a reservation at the Lands End in Homer for one night, then go on a charter for halibut. The Kenai Princess is a good honeymoon spot too I guess. Valdez can be a good place to go in August as well cause of the early silvers at VFDA

    Jenni,

    Welcome to the forum. To get the best info, you need to tell folks what area you will be spending most of your time in. Big state and all. Be as specific as you can about what you are looking for with fishing. For example, we are looking for a one day guided boat fishing in river for salmon. Or.. we would like to stay in a lodge that has a guide service we could utilize for 2-3 days of fishing during a given week. The more detailed you can be about your goals, the more folks will chime in and help. Sounds like a great way to spend your honeymoon. Odds are good you will be spending your one year anniversary in Alaska as well. The place has that effect on some folks

    Get ahold of Eagles Nest resort in cooper landing. Get one of thier stunning cabins right on the river. Then call alaska troutfitters and schedule a rainbow/red float trip down the kenai river.

    Default Another option

    Bill just opened his B&B full time on the Kenai as well.

    Has 40ft of private dock to enjoy. Pricing is very reasonable IMO.

    He also have package deals going with from Salt to Fresh as well as Bear view, horseback riding etc......

    Might be worth the look.

    Best Wished on your your Alaska adventure and Congrats.

    Default Lots of options...

    But we need to know what you have in mind. Your options could range from the Homer/Kenai/Valdez circle with B and B's etc or a flyout trip to float a river....or maybe a cabin rental with some decent casting nearby. What's your initial thoughts, and the many members here can hook you up with the best way to go about it.

    Yeah, ditto on what other have said. The big questions are what kind of fishing you're interested in doing and how much money you want to spend. You can have a great time in a lot of the coastal towns and fish cheaply, or you can pay $5000 for a week of "big rainbows on every cast" sort of fishing across Cook Inlet. If you have a particular destination in mind that really helps. When people come to visit me I suggest they start in Anchorage and do the Denali Park circuit and then spend a few days in both Seward and Homer.
