Default Alaska Help

I'm begging for a little help here. I was just given the opportunity to go to Anchorage the week of Aug 27th on Biz. We are going to have one free day, and we'd like to book a day trip close to Anchorage for Salmon. Any suggestions on who I could/should use?
Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Seward is only 2 hours away. It should be hopping with silvers then. Or you could do a charter on the little Su, Deshka, or even Talkeetna.

For Seward charters call the Fish House,

Drive to Seward and get a charter for halibut. It will cost you the same and your just darn near garanteed to bring home 50lbs or more. Even a couple of 30lb fish (hopefully the captain won't Make you keep small ones) will be enough to pay for the trip. Besides you can catch a bunch of silvers back home in a couple of weeks.

Whittier is closer. Check it out. It's a lot easier since the tunnel was up graded.

I would go to Seward for halibut and Silvers, I will be fishing there on Aug 24th as we do every year, we always slay the fish...almost guaranteed! unless the weather is bad. the little Su north of Anchorage will be full of Silvers also...good luck!

Fish off the bank of the upper Kenai for silvers, rainbows, and dollies. At the very least it is very pretty up there.

The problem with Whittier is the extra $25 just to go through the tunnel. Seward would be my 1st choice.

Been a few tears since I was back up there. I didn't remember it being that expensive to go thru the tunnel.

Not sure if you still need help, but i've been to Anchorage several times and here's my best advice. First, if you only have one day, try to get wherever you want to fish the NIGHT before. Otherwise, you're going to spend a lot of travel time and very little fishing time. If you've got a limited time window, i suggest a float plane drop on a productive stream. Many of those guys that fly out of anchorage will be willing to pick you up later that day. It's a bit pricy though.

My next suggestion would be the deep creek or Kenai area. If you've never been, you'll want to hook up with a local, preferably a guide or you'll spend your only fishing day on education. If the halibut are still going, Homer is a beautiful trip but it will take a lot of time. Can be rough out there for those without sea legs.

I've never been there late Aug but i expect the coho would be thick in spots. If so, you could probably find a small stream and get lucky.

Hope that helps.
