I've looked at a bunch of lodges on line but I'm not sure what area or lodge would be the best.We're able to go at any time at this point.Most of the areas we looked at showed late june through late July best for Rainbows and Kings.I guess this is the time period we're looking at.I'll keep seaching the web.sparse grey said:JJ My wife & I are going this summer also. Have you narrowed down a time & area? We have about decided on late Aug & early Sept. flying to Anchorage & driving around Kenai Penn. Check the time of year for salmon & trout. From what I have gleamed, the Kings are done by end of July & trouting is usually better later. I am not the best researcher but there is tons of info available & some web sites that are helpful. Good luck & e-mail me if you want some sites.
