One low cost option would be to fly fish for sockeye salmon on the Kenai, if your interested in that then send me a PM and I will give you details. Another idea would be to contact one of the air taxi services that operate out of Lake Hook (next to the airport) and inquire about a fly out to a remote salmon stream.

If your not particularly interested in fly fishing, but just want to go fishing, then check out the guides near Deep Creek or the Kenai River, most use bait or plugs so if you want to fly fish you will have to do some research. Some of the guides do float trips down the Kenai for Rainbows, but make sure they fly fish and not back troll plugs.

Hi Larry
While based in AK did you ever fish the SITUK ?
Watched a TV show about the river and area, was wondering if it is as good as it sounds, Situk Steel.
