Great fishing opportunities are found throughout Alaska. We've focused on a portion of the area called Southcentral Alaska. From Anchorage, you don't need to fly for hours to reach a great fishing area. The fishing spots along Alaska's highway system can provide excellent fishing, but will be crowded during certain periods. When you feel the need, you can fly out or take a boat to get away from the crowds. Alaska can be broken down into five regions as shown below: Southcentral Alaska, Southeast, Southwest, the Interior, and the Far North.
Don't worry about getting lost when driving out of Anchorage. There's one major road going north, and one going south. The creeks, rivers, towns, etc., have signs on the highway. The junction where you can keep going south to Seward or right toward Kenai and Homer is clearly marked; and so is the junction where you can turn left toward Wasilla, or keep going straight toward Palmer. Other than that it's just a matter of not driving past the place where you want to fish.

BE SURE to get a copy of the fishing regulations when you buy your fishing license. There are numerous maps inside the fishing regulations booklet. I'd recommend looking at the Dept. of Fish & Game site listed on the Links Page. I'd also recommend getting one or more books on Fishing in Alaska. (See Further Reading.)
