What is the best eating freshwater fish in the state?
I don't consider salmon freshwater (although if I did it may not make the list anyways)
1. "Fresh" Grayling, right out of the stream into the frying pan. If you put them in the freezer forget it.
2. The poor mans lobster (Burbot)
4. Rainbows (although it can be hard to beat a smoked rainbow, I am getting hungry , I am going to get some fish out for dinner now)
Rainbows are my favorite.
I am surprised at the grayling and the pike...
grayling? Really? How about char? I was told we can catch those both near our camp up near Deadhorse and I am looking forward to that in the summer, but I always hear rainbows were the best of the best. But man it blew my mind when they told me you couldn't keep trout from the rivers.
For me it's the Lake Trout. Fine, delicate meat with all of the good flavors of rainbows, but more so! I also love freshwater bass, bluegill and Crapie, although its been 35 years since I had any. Not to forget how great Burbot (fresh water ling cod) taste in tacos! Of the salmon, it's barbecued Kings first, then Reds, then Silvers over the coals. Oh but smoked Reds!!!!
In alaska rainbows in the lower 48 bluegill
No walleyes in alaska?......wanna visit before I croak.
No Walleyes up here.....I hear they taste great from the in-laws from South Dakota!
Would love to eat one and find out.
Had a friend in ND give me and a buddy a few packages of walleye. I think they are #1 in my book for best tasting fish. Kind of similar to northerns but no Y bones. We need walleye in AK.
