My son, James, and I recently completed an eight-day fishing trip to Alaska. Our plan was to sample the fishing in a number of spots on the Alaska Peninsula, which is renowned not only for its salmon runs (all five species), but for huge rainbow trout (up to 10 pounds), grayling, char, and northern pike.
We booked four days at Rainbow Bay Resort, in Pedro Bay; and four at Nak Nek River Camps, in King Salmon (more on this lodge later). I made all the flight arrangements way in advance – United Airlines from New York to Anchorage and back, Lake Clark Air from Anchorage to Pedro Bay; Rainbow Bay floatplane to King Salmon; and Penn Air back to Anchorage.
