If your talking trout, a buddy of mine fishes that area every year and is up there right now. He is a guide down in the states and his company trades a lot of trips to AK so he knows his stuff. He uses a #6 or #8 in Red or bronze Gama. egghook and 3/0 wieghts. I am heading up in 3 weeks and am taking with me those sizes. I also purchased many different egg colors but he mentioned that the best color is orange painted with white translucent nail polish. I would suggest that your wife buys you the polish to avoid the funny looks at the check out! Best of luck.
