    I go to Alaska every June. Price of Whales Island, Coffman Cove, Kenai, Homer, Seward, etc. Been doing it for years. I spend most of my trips in the Sterling / Soldotna area fishing for Sockeye in the Kenai and Russian Rivers. June is the first run of sockeye every year (which tend to be bigger...

    So you want to travel thousands of miles to go fly fishing in Alaska, home to giant flesh-eating Rainbow Trout, float planes, and remote wilderness. It is important to prioritize desired fishing tactics, species, and weather patterns before planning your fishy getaway. It is also important to...

    I had a last minute work trip pop up to Juneau AK next week. Being from the East Coast I have no clue what to tie, what to bring, etc. I had brief call w. local fly shop but looking for a little more DIY guidance. Will have car and a full day to fish. Plan on simplifying and bringing a 7wt...

    Hello all, I have officially signed on board a commercial fishing boat with a family friend for the summer! I will be heading to the Kenai Peninsula at the end of May. I will have about 7 or 8 days free before the we start spending our days on the boat working. He is also a religious man and...

    I am looking to book a solo trip to Alaska in late June. This will be my second trip to Alaska but it would be safe to consider me a newb to the region. I'm hoping for some recommendations to start inquiries. Here are my search parameters: Dates: late June, maybe squeaking into early July...

    Reported now at 7.9, South of Cordova. Only 6 miles deep, shallow earthquakes make big waves. First Tsunami Buoy registered a 30' water rise. Anchorage is getting hit right now, no word yet how bad. Washington coast should see it around 5:00 AM. No telling how bad until the next Buoy gets a...

    I've been taking university/community groups to Missoula, MT 1-2 times a year since 2012. I love the location because there are several awesome rivers that our outfitter (Missourian Angler) can access. We stay in a downtown hotel and are walking distance to lots of great local restaurants. It's...

    Hey I was wondering if anyone has fly fished in the Petersburg area recently. I saw some posts from 10 years ago but I was wondering if anyone has gone up there recently. I am spending a week up there in late July and would like to receive some first hand information if possible. Thank you in...

    This year I took on a 4-month cooking job on the Alaska Peninsula south of King Salmon, Alaska. I flew into King Salmon early July. The lodge was out on the tundra south of Becharof Lake. I don't normally cook in a lodge for fishermen and hunters. I'm more used to wall tents although I...

    I spend time every year in Alaska. I work as a cook and fish in my down time. I've learned a few important things few people who don't live there know about. If you have Alaska on your bucket list, here's a helpful tip. Alaska is a huge place with relatively few roads. Travel is often done via...

    Yep, married 40 years this August, and celebrating by spending a few days around Anchorage. My wife doesn't fish much any more since I stopped using conventional gear, so this is not a fishing trip, but I do want to stop at some creeks and make a few casts. We'll be bouncing between Denali...

    Here's a nice little flyfishing movie. I'm a member of Amazon Prime so I can stream the movie for free, and did, but it's worth paying to rent. I like it because it shows "real" flyfishing (other than the fact they use beads and flesh flies more than much else). They don't always catch...

    The most frequently Googled How To's by state. While Washington folks seem most concerned about earthquakes, Montanans are worried about hard boiling eggs.

    Need some help....I moved from the Seattle area to Colorado two years ago and no longer have too many contacts in the Seattle fishing area. I have a friend and her family who want to send their dad up to Alaska for his birthday next year to go after Salmon. He is not a fly fisherman from what...

    I just returned from nearly 2 months in the Alaska bush near the Yukon border where I was cooking for a fly-in hunting camp. I flew into camp in a Super Cub over some really great looking land. The all-cabin camp looks a bit like a small village. We used All-terrain Argos to move hunters...

    Just back from my annual trip to AK. I lived there for 26 years and now have 2 sons and 3 granddaughters living in Wasilla. This gives me a good excuse to visit. I have been fishing the streams north of Wasilla for years. There are about 10 anadromous streams crossed by the Parks Highway...

    Would love some help in pointing me toward some walk-n-wade opportunities on the Kenai peninsula! I'll be in Anchorage the next few days with the opportunity to fish Monday/Tuesday. Obviously I'm interested in wrasslin' some fishes. My understanding is the opportunities will be pink and...
