    I only flyfish, so take my advice with a grain of salt. You will be on silvers, chum & decreasing size. POW pinks are a bit larger than elsewhere, but still not huge. The lure fishermen that I have seen catching fish tend to use spoons in silver/chrome, frequently with bright colored inserts. I don't think the fish are really all that picky.

    You don't need a lot of heavy stuff as only the silvers get all that large. In fly equivalents I use a 10' Tippett for silvers & 6' for pinks...occasional breakoffs, yes, but it makes the fight that much more enjoyable.

    The road system is full of fishing alternatives, both streams & salt.

    Hope that helps

    Read some of the threads that I started. Folks on this board are very helpful with general advice. I'll be up there in a little more than a week on my first trip to AK
