Alaska's Premier Fly Fishing Source

In the inter tidal areas and in the lakes, try fishing Clouser Minnows, Dolly Llamas and Half N' Half Deceivers in pink/white, chartreuse/white, pink/purple and tutti frutti.  In the creeks, the drifting Dolly Llamas, LE Egg Sucking Leeches, Hareball Leeches, Jig Spankers, Deep Sixes and Mr. Bodangles in pinks, purples, blacks and some chartreuses.  In the esuaries fish them with a floating line and a 9' salmon/steelhead leader.  In the creeks, you can fish a floating line with a 9-10' leader or with a short fast sink tip. The big thing in fishing the streams is focusing on deeper pools and getting the fly down deep.
