    Yeah, not technically low holing, but I just recently learned the term and was itching to use it

    I've had a few people do that to me, though none I can recall ever ran........ If they didn't move I would simply walk out in front of them. The look on their face was more times then not, priceless.

    this wasn't low holing, literally the most disrespectful thing I have ever had happen. She sprinted across the river to steal my spot, even though all my stuff (rods included) were still laying there. Then saw nothing wrong with what she did

    on the anchor watch out for the lady who likes to steal your spot. I was fishing my center pin today, set my rod down and walked 30 feet away to grab something and she literally ran across the river and stood exactly where I was standing. I almost completely lost it. I told her what she was did was extremely rude and she wouldn't even apologize... What a $%@! she said, oh, ill give you your spot back and move like 10 feet.Totally ruined the day for me, I had to leave before I pushed her in the river.

    There are three campgrounds on the Anchor between the highway and the mouth of the river. You can drive to all of them. Paved road. Vac chess the river from there, a short walk. 15 pound mono should do the trick. Very key, you need to get the bait, lure whatever you are using down to the fish. If you drift over the fish they generally won't come up for it. Good luck. Let us know how you did. I second the Trustworthy Hardware in Soldotna. On your right just before the Kenai in Soldotna.

    The three of us are driving down from Anchorage to Seward on Thurs to do a Kenai tour and then we are going from there to the place we rented in Homer and will be there the next two days.

    Once again, thanks for all the advice! Quick couple of questions, when you say they are accessible from the highway do you mean there are specific designated areas to pull off at? If so, im sure i can look those up. I just ask because i do trout fishing in Wisconsin and a lot of it is just pulling off the road when you find certain opening or bridges and going down to the water from there. Also, i'm assuming i should be using mono? And what pound test do you all recommend?

    Once again, you all have been really helpful, glad i found this forum!

    Plan to spend any time in Kenai?

    Are you driving down or flying into Homer?

    There is a boat rental place in Sterling that also rents rods and reels.

    How many of you are interested in fishing?

    Anchor River & Deep Creek mentioned above are accessible on the highway - the only road to Homer. A good solid spinning rod & a few Pixies or Vibrax lures should get you into some silvers, or eggs also mentioned, are probably a little better bet, if not quite as simple. If you're driving from Anchorage to Homer, stop at "Trustworthy Hardware & Fishing" in Soldotna, they should have a decent cheap spinning setup & all your other necessities.
