    I would focus efforts on learning about fly fishing in Colorado. While different than Alaska, the opportunities should be amazing.
    The two loudest sounds known to man: a gun that goes bang when it is supposed to go click and a gun that goes click when it is supposed to go bang.

    I was planning to fish today, but spent most of the night coughing up my lungs. Some of the lakes around Wasilla have enough open water around the edges to fish, and that can be terrific fishing.

    If I was preparing to move to CO, I'd sure spend time on those lakes around Wasilla. I've fished CO quite a bit, and most of the rivers are overfished for my tastes. But there is no end of lakes large and small that almost never see a fly, and especially in spring at ice-out some of them can be dynomite trout fishing, even if they're better known for other species. We work the shorelines, concentrating on weed beds in summer (nymphs and buggers) and rocky outcrops in spring, as well as early in the morning/late in the evening (streamers for really big browns).

    It was flowing, but not completely open...
    Everything starting at Kashwitna and above was still pretty crowded with ice. Fishable for sure, but like scott_rn said, Willow and Lil Su are completely open....
    Baxter and I were upstream of Willow on Saturday, and the farther up you go, the more ice you find, but still fishable all the way up!
