Freshwater Fishing in Alaska
You are welcome to use your own equipment and experiment with your own secret lures and flies.
Steelhead fishing is best in late April and May.
Fishing for Cutthroat and Dolly Varden trout is best in May, June, and early July.
Sockeye, Pink and Chum salmon move into streams in July and Coho salmon enter streams in September.
Casting spinners, spoons, and jigs on spinning rods or fly casting are very effective methods for all species. Some wading is required on most streams so chest waders or hip boots are recommended. They are an absolute must for fly fishing.
I strongly encourage catch and release on all trout and salmon in these streams - these are extremely delicate systems that cannot sustain a catch and take fishery.
