Spey What size switch rod, 5wt or 6wt?

Sorry to read this Ken. Apparently (?) you pigeonholed yourself into a "Set-Fishing-Lodge-Program" !?. I've read on blogs, and seen a few vlog's that bear out Your Situation and that is sad. Others I've come across are just the opposite -- Lots of Flexibility by the Lodge Guides, boat OR fly-in ! I'll be searching in depth for "Ideas," but IF I can go to Alaska, it will be (again) taking my Jeep (2016 WK2), pulling my new/forthcoming Taxa Cricket "Habitat" and "roughing it" on my own terms. Dispersed Camping and some RV parks as well !?. I'll head up via a Ferry out of Seattle or Bellingham, WA. I'll have an Inflatable raft of some kind plus those 3 rods mentioned previously. I hope to be able to make it at least a Month long Adventure . . . not yet sure which time of year yet . Puzzled that you sold the switch rods !?. You bought them JUST FOR this Alaska trip? Based on the waters you were fishing . . . sounds like they had you fishing over spawning fish ?? If that's the case . . . that not only sucks but is IMO unethical and perhaps illegal - not sure of Alaska Fish and Game regs, or the Alaska Trout spawning times?.
No Photos to share? Fish Porn? Where you stayed? What Streams/rivers you fished? this information could help others considering such a trip !?. Thanks for sharing

This is a good thread on related AK trip info. On my particular trip on the Kvichak and surrounding fishing areas, they are only accessible by float plane. 150 miles from any roads.

The 'Evening Hatch' Gang is currently on a trip on the Kvichak as per their website . . . interesting. Not sure about the 10+ year thing (?), was that too me? Did I Typo myself? My tentative plan for AK is Next year (2022) or 2023. I don't think I have another 10 years "in me," unfortunately. So my Dream Bucket List is shorter and the "Big Trips" moved to the top !
