Hello. My husband and I are planning a first visit to Alaska in 2011. Doing early planning, and wanting to figure out where we will be going fishing. we want to spend 2 or 3 days on guided fishing trips for Red or Silver Salmon. My husband loves to fish, he mostly fishes spinner but dabbles in fly fishing. He's not an expert. We want to hit a great salmon run, looking for plentiful catches rather than the biggest fish. We are pretty wide open to where and when we go, we are going to time the trip around the best fishing opportunity. We'll be in Alaska 2 weeks and will be sightseeing, but the fishing is a priority and we want to get the timing and location right. We want to try to avoid the height of the rainy season (I know, it can and will rain anytime), so we were leaning towards mid-July to first week of August but could as easily come in June. From our research so far we figured we'd hit the Kenai Penninsula and were leaning towards a trip on the Kenai for reds and a fly-out to the Kustatan for silvers, with maybe a third day at Big River/Wolverine Creek for more silvers/reds and some bear watching, but we wanted to make sure these were good choices. We went to our local fly fishing shop today and they had tons of brochures but never mentioned the Kenai at all. Lots of mentions of Bristol Bay, and some other rivers I never heard of in our research. Is our plan good or is there a better location for what we need? The tentative plan is to be on the Kenai Penninsula for a week and then a road trip Hatcher Pass/Glenn Highway/Richardson Highway/Wrangell-Elias NP/Valdez, but we'll go where the fish are. Fly-outs are okay, fly-in overnight lodges too if they aren't extremely expensive, which most of them are. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
