The ultimate guidebook to fishing one of the world's most beautiful backcountry spots.

Fishing Alaska's Kenai Peninsula is not merely a reference guide. It showcases the uniqueness of Alaska while emphasizing the universal passions that make the sport of fishing so compelling. With stories and anecdotes to complement the detailed specifics on stream access, timing, tactics, and equipment, this fascinating book will appeal not only to those planning a visit but to all those who have a love of fishing and only dream of going. Atcheson provides information on both fly fishing and conventional spin casting in both fresh and salt water. He covers every style of fishingfrom jigging for giant halibut off the coast, to float tubing for grayling and monster rainbow trout on quiet mountain lakes, to pursuing all the species of salmon that run up the streams of the Kenai Peninsula to spawn. He supplies detailed information on the well known "combat zones" that are so renowned for their large salmon and trout that anglers line up shoulder to shoulder in their pursuit. In addition, there's hard-to-find information on those out-of-the-way, beautiful stretches of water where one can still enjoy the beauty and the blessed solitude of the Alaskan wilderness. 30 black and white photographs, 5 illustrations, 10 maps, index.
