Insta-Q&A: Hooking a Fishing Guide
Not being a fisherperson, it's hard for me to appreciate the lure of salmon fishing in Alaska -- but I can definitely appreciate the results. Salmon's not only delicious, it's one of the most healthful foods you can eat. And since the fish is also apparently a lot of fun to catch, it's spawned a whole tourism industry up in Alaska. The fish can be caught year-round, but the best time is during the summer, when, according to the state's tourism office, "they can literally choke streams and rivers with their vast numbers."
Sounds tempting. But how to choose an outfitter? That's the topic of this week's Insta-Q, which comes from Stephanie Sefcik of Vienna. She writes:
My husband and some friends would like to go salmon fishing in Alaska this summer. Can you recommend some places to go? Looking on the Internet, there are so many areas and choices.
Stephanie, one place to start is Travel Alaska, the state's tourism office, which has a detailed list of companies offering salmon fishing trips, so you can compare itineraries and prices. Of course, there's nothing like a personal recommendation.
So how about it, readers? Anyone out there been there, done that, and can recommend a location and/or outfitter?
