I recently picked up a float tube cheap off craigslist and am looking to explore the Anchorage area lakes a little more in search of some larger fish from the tube(awaiting payday to buy flippers and make maiden voyage, yes I will wear my life jacket) And to get out alone away from the banks. The biggest fish I have caught on flies (in anchorage) have been only about 12", one char and one trout, while most are 8" or less freshly stocked fish. I have heard some of the lakes hold bigger char, and at least once a summer an intoxicated bystander at some local lake will attest to the monster trout he has witnessed people catching there I'm sure some of the trout do grow bigger than 12". I have limited trout fishing experience, mostly salmon in the past, and want to build my lake fishing skills here in town and not be driving super far away. You know the 2 hour vacation after a day of work. Any suggestions on lakes, locations in said lakes, and flies/presentations/methods, etc... would be greatly appreciated. PM me if you don't want to SHOUT out good spots to everyone. Thanks to anyone who responds.
