Experiencing the Beauty of Alaska

Alaska offers one of the most diverse and beautiful landscapes for exploration and sport. One of the most popular activities of those visiting Alaska is fishing.

However, there are many other activities that can be enjoyed in this fantastic landscape as well. During the summer, the Alaska Peninsula is one of the most breath taking places you can travel.

You can begin your trip by seeking the giant Rainbow Trout. The giant Rainbow can be found in the Battle, Kulik, Brooks, Naknek, Kvichak and Talarik rivers.

Feel free to enjoy as much time as you would like exploring these rivers and chasing the giant Rainbow Trout. It is sure to a very rewarding and satisfying experience.

The giant Rainbow Trout is typically about 28 to 30 inches in length and weighs about five pounds. However, this amazing fish can grow to be ten to twelve pounds in weight.

There may be times during your trip when you will want to take a break from trying to catch the giant Rainbow Trout and try seeking the Silver Salmon. The best way to catch the Silver Salmon is with flies, but the flies can be either wet or dry.

These fantastic fish can grow to be between 12 and 19 pounds in weight. Catching one of these giants would mark a very successful day for any fisherman.

After several days of fishing you may be ready for a change. You may want to try your hand at hunting for the Ptarmigan or ducks that are found on this Peninsula.

Make sure that you purchase a hunting permit before you try to catch some of these birds. However, these birds are very abundant and you are sure to catch a few for a delicious dinner after a long, but wonderful day in the outdoors.

In the following days you may want to pursue a mixture of hunting and fishing. The Alaska Char is also a fairly popular Alaskan fish to seek.

Alaskan fishing is like no other experience on earth. Some people have returned from this signature land with stories of how the fish practically jumped into their boat.

There are many local fishing lodges that can provide you with gear you need to hunt and fish if you are traveling a long distance and cannot take your own gear with you. However, you will want to make sure that you wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions that you will be facing that day.

You will want to consider bringing extra clothing for warmth and extra waterproof clothing. Keep in mind that Alaska is located in the far north and that the weather conditions are likely to be more extreme than you are used to.

Hunting will also require more activity and walking around. As a result, you will want to have a set of clothes that are easy to move around in and that will not hinder you too much.

You will also want another set of clothing for fishing, including waders. This set of clothing should be comfortable, but it will likely hinder your movement somewhat more than the set of clothing you will use for hunting.

Even if you are not a dedicated hunter or fisherman, the experience you will have in Alaska will be one you will never forget. You may even discover a couple of hobbies that have lain dormant for several years.

For those who have never fished or hunted before, there are many professional and friendly guides who can give you tips and take you to the best locations for hunting and fishing. With the help of the guides you will have one of the best experiences of your life.

Many people use a family vacation or business trip as an excuse to travel to Alaska and go fishing. This is a great opportunity to bond with friends and co-workers.

Alaska is also a great place to find some time to relax. The amount of time you are able to spend in nature can contribute greatly to helping you let go of the normal worries of life and relax.

You will return to your normal life refreshed and eager to pursue the activities of life. Do not pass the opportunity to experience the fantastic outdoors and great fishing of Alaska.

This is an experience that will be cherished by you and your friends for the rest of your lives. It will be unforgettable.
