Not to discourage, but the peak of the action at Pack Creek won't be until the afternoon on Aug. 25 due to the tides... is 2-ish hours really enough time to do it justice? If you depart by 9am,...

Re: Kenai fishing

Haven't stayed there, and don't fish that far north too often, but be sure to check whether their fishing guides are locals or not. Something silly like 90%+ of the guides in the state are only here...
