Basically, if you have read about it in a magazine there will be crowds, and books are old information within a year of publication. That's simply the nature of publishing and the long lead times between an author getting his hands wet and his story finally being published.
There's a whole industry devoted to helping people find dream fishing, but there are lots of people with dreams. Even Kodiak is crowded in the peak seasons.
The further you live from the fishing hole, the more dependent you are on the written sources for your information. Use the written sources to pick a general area and time of year, but reconcile yourself to crowds in all the places that have been written about. The fishing will still be good, but you are going to have a lot of new best friends until you take the extra step and spend the extra buck to reach the out-of-way places no one has written about yet. Writers have to make their living, but lots of folks won't talk to them simply to preserve their favorite hidden fishing holes.
