I have 3 days off August 19th-22nd in between my job in seattle and going back to graduate school and I'm considering flying from Seattle to Anchorage and chasing silvers and rainbows on the Kenai Penninsula. I haven't been to AK before and I am moving out of Seattle the 23rd, so although I don't have a lot of time I would like to make the most of what could be my last days in the PNW. I'm wondering if any members here who have done a trip around this time can provide useful information on guides, regions, styles of fishing(swinging flies, nymphing etc.) and which rivers and possibly lakes are a peaking at that time. I know the Russian and Kenai are world-famous, but also have a reputation for combat fishing. Is it so crowded in late august that it's not worth going? Also if there are alternative rivers or target species(dolly varden or pinks) that you recommend from experience I would be extremely appreciative. Regards, Bjorn G.
