Hello, I am rather new here and am trying to plan a 10 day RV trip through Alaska. I have reserved my RV and have determined that my group would definitely like to explore Denali (via shuttle bus), Fairbanks, Valdez, Anchorage, The Kenai Penn. and everywhere inbetween. I initally asked this question as a "part 2" type question in another post and it was suggested that I may get more responses if I post it as a seperate post. So here it is.
We would like to do some stream/river/lake fishing for Trout, Doilly Varden, Artic Char and Grayling. we would rather just explore areas and fish on our own. We would prefer not to use a guide service if possible. I have done several searches of the forum and cant really find any useful info regarding anything other than Fishing the Kenai for salmon. Dont get me wrong, as I would love to fish for salmon on the Kenai, but something about "combat fishing" with 1 million other people elbow to elbow doesnt sound too appealing. Would it be possible for anyone to give me any info on fishing for Trout, Char, Grayling and Dolly Varden? Rivers, lakes to try? Internet sites to look at? Is it possible to "roadside fish" and do OK? I am just looking for something a bit more peaceful the Fishing the Kenai for salmon perhaps without spending the money to take a fly in type guided charter. Also.. I dont expect anyone to give up their "honey hole" but any suggestions for a New guy traveling to Alaska would be great.
I appreciate any and all suggestions.
