Default Alaskan Fishing Vacation

Anyone been to Alaska to fish? I'd like to fish for salmon in the streams/rivers? I have no clue where to go.

Wife is going so horse back riding, shopping would be nice close by,,,

Any lodge or city I should start my search?

Thanks.

Also, what time of year is the best for stream fishing salmon?

Thanks for the links Semper Fi!

That's exactly what I was looking for.

Are there any anglers who use spinning gear instead of fly rods in these streams?

I don't bother with fly fishing, most stream are overgrown with alders and trees along the edge and make it a pain in the but. You will be fin with spinning gear but you will have to learn a few new techniques to be really successful for some species. I assume sempers links are for southeast, if so bring really good rain gear.
