My wife is taking off to the lower 48 for a month to see family with our kids and my dad is coming up! I'm ready to go fishing! He will be getting in the 6th of June and will be ready to go fishing. Salmon fishing dates, what area of the state would be good to start fishing for salmon other than kings? he woudn't mind buying a week long king stamp but not wanting at spending $100 on one after spending $140 on a fishing permit. Is there any place to start fishing for reds in early to middle June? If there where kings in the fishery that would be great for me! We do have a 17' Alumaweld with a 60 prop. Thinking maybe Homer and the Kenai but looking for ideas!
I'm also thinking we will grab our trout gear and head up the Parks and do some camping, catch some trout, grayling and get a little gold panning in. No real agenda just wanting to get out and have some fun. Any recomendations would be great, not looking for honey holes. Like I said I have a boat plus I do have a couple wheelers if that would help get back into an area.
