Time to head north again for some fishing. We have Sept 10-23 available to us and looking to spend 4 to 6 days fishing in Alaska. This will be my girlfriend's first trip to Alaska and want her to catch fish and experience some of the beautiful country. I think at this time of the year Silvers would be our best bet. I have fished the Cordova area a few days later than this at the end of a couple of goat hunts and have done well. The last time I was in that area was in 2003. This will be my first trip for fishing only as all previous trips have been for chasing furry critters. I've been a regular AK visitor since 1987.
People that I know tell me the numbers of non-commercial salmon fishermen in the Cordova area have increased greatly the the last couple of years. I am not interested in any "combat fishing" situations. Looking to get away from the crowds and enjoy some fun fishing together. I would appreciate advice/suggestions/recommendations for the best times in this area (given the days we have available to us) or other areas and also info for lodges and/or packaged trips that any of you have first hand knowledge about. Also is the September time too late to consider trying for Halibut for a day or two?
Please respond here or PM me. Thanks in advance for your help, advice and suggestions. And Thanks to David for providing this great way to learn more about Alaska and what it has to offer.
