Fishing Alaska's Kenai Peninsula is the first and only book to provide detailed information on stream access, timing, tactics, and equipment for fishing one of the world's beautiful backcountry spots. Longtime Alaska resident Atcheson provides information on both fly fishing and conventional spin casting in both fresh and salt water. He covers every style of fishing - from jigging for giant halibut off the coast, to float tubing for grayling and monster rainbow trout on quiet mountain lakes, to pursuing species of salmon that run up the streams of the Kenai Peninsula to spawn.
Dozens of maps, diagrams, and illustrations give crucial details on where to go, how to fish each area, and how to identify the local salmon species. Atcheson also covers the well-known "combat zones" that are so renowned for their large salmon and trout that angler line up shoulder to shoulder in pursuit. In addition he reveals how to find out-of-the-way, peaceful stretches of water where the beauty of Alaskan wilderness can still be enjoyed in solitude.
Stories and anecdotes embellish the streamside specifics in a book that will appeal not only to those planning a visit, but to all those who have a love of fishing and only day dream of going.
