Recommended Posts

Well everyone here at FM.com has been great. I am moving to alaska in a week. I will be traveling around alaska for the first 2 weeks, doing some fishing and sightseeing before I start teaching. can anyone offer any good shore fishing areas that they have found to be awesome. I have fished homer spit before, but nowhere else from shore. any information would be GREATLY appreciated.

what area of the state are you moving to? i have spent many summers up there and am familiar with much of the state. if you narrow down the area a bit i could help you more.

I spent a summer tenting up there a few years ago. Kenai river is great fishing! There is good fishing to be had in about every river around. I know that you don't even need a license to fish in the resevoir above Homer.

Al, I am moving to a village town out on the bearing sea. however, I am going to be all over the state for a few weeks before I move out there. I have fished both the kenei river and the homer spit "lagoon" thanks for being willing to help guys.

good luck i'm sure it will be quite an experience living in the bush. the end of july is probably not the best time to fish in many parts of alaska. the king runs are almost over in many areas and the coho runs are only beginning. if you are anywhere near the town of wasilla in early august i would definitely fish the little susitna river,i also know of a few other excellent fishing opportunities in this area all aceesible by foot. let me know if you need further help.

Go with where you know, the Kenai peninsula is hot the end of July. 2nd run kings are in full swing, and looking pretty strong this year. And the reds are prime as well, we leave sunday for a week of harvesting reds for the canner. Throw in a Homer halibut trip, and it's hard to find a better way to spend a week. Crowded at times, of course, but unless you have big bucks you have to decide wether you want salmon or solitude. Heck, I get all the privacy I need in northern MN, give me action anyday. And if you do care to pop for a flyout, a short flight across cook inlet will get you into several streams with very catchable numbers of silvers the last week of July. 7 days and counting...
