Hard Core Fishing

An Anglers Paradaise

If your preferences run to stream and lake fishing for trout, there are literally millions of bodies of water to choose from. Southeast Alaska has cutthroat, brook, steelhead and rainbows available year around, while farther north you can find rainbows, lake trout, Arctic grayling and Arctic char, Dolly Varden and northern pike. For a truly unique experience, thrill-seeking fisher folk can head for the Arctic regions and fish for the sheefish. These large, muscular fish live in the rivers of the far north and their willingness to take big streamer flies endears them to fly fishing connoisseurs.

Hard core anglers who need a fishing fix in the middle of winter can try some hard water fishing in Southcentral and Interior Alaska. Fishing on lakes and streams locked in Old Man Winter's icy grip can be rewarding and productive. Char and Dolly Varden, as well as rainbow trout, pike, landlocked salmon and the tasty burbot provide plenty of opportunities for gathering fresh fish and getting out to experience Alaska's winter recreational opportunities. Lakes on the Kenai Peninsula, the Mat-Su Valley north of Anchorage, and within the Municipality of Anchorage provide the chance to ice fish without venturing too far from the warmth and comforts of civilization.
