A few thoughts
Posted by B_M on Apr 18 2006
Well, you're here before most of the salmon runs really get going.  You might be able to try for a king in the Kenai or the Kasilof (if it's open yet?) right at the end of your trip, and maybe in Ship Creek in Anchorage, but mainly you're too early for freshwater kings.  You could charter a boat out of Deep Creek to troll for kings, or maybe a combo trip for salmon and halibut.  Basically, if you want to get fish to eat you may have to go on a charter.  Halibut charters out of Homer, Ninilchik, Seward, and Whittier will be in full swing by then, but they do cost a bit.

As for highway angling, the streams will be closed to trout fishing during your visit due to the spawning season.  I'm not sure when/if grayling fishing closes...maybe someone else can answer that one?

I'm certain there are some other options out there that I haven't thought of.  Anyone else have ideas?
