    You should probably head south out of Anchorage, hit Seward (good place to take a charter) then hit the Sterling Highway ending in Homer. I stay in Sterling all summer and guide on the Kenai. Our fishing on the Kenai has been down the last few years but there are plenty of fish to be caught, your time frame isn't peak for us though, but there will be fish. Your surest bet for fish would be fishing out of Seward or Homer on the salt water. If river is your thing, there are places along the way to fish as well, there will probably still be some reds in the Russian and you can fish the Kasilof river. Just watch the regulations closely as they can change. If you want to do something on the Kenai river or need lodging in that area I and point you in an affordable riverfront location.

    Headed your way June 23rd...Starting off in Talkeetna/Hatcher pass area...Then to Seward down the Kenai and then Homer and back to Anchorage.

    How about some good eating places on the river! Mom and Pop joints that have been around forever.

    Lodging is all booked but looking for anything else that we should not miss while there?

    We always stay at the Kozey Cabins in Wasilla. They are right at the beginning of Hatcher Pass.

    Easy to get to the Little Sue, Montana, and Willow Creek.

    Here's some info: http://www.ysr-racer.com/alaska_2008.htm
