  • Looking at options for trip for my son and I in June. He is fly fisherman...likely 2 days of fishing as we will link with a visit to Healy to see family. our first time to Alaska.

    What week of June would be the best time in June to visit? And any areas you'd recommend for us to check out for some fly fishing between Anchorage & Healy?

    Thanks Burt

  • Kevin,


    Congratulations on your upcoming family trip to Alaska! June is a great time to target leopard rainbow trout, arctic grayling, and dolly varden on the Parks highway on your way to Healy. With regards to timing I would recommend the middle part and later to allow for runoff (in theory) to run its course. There are tons of rivers just a little north of Anchorage and then up a little north north past the Talkeetna Spur. In these systems you will find the 3 aforementioned species. Here there is a ton of access right off the Parks Highway. Once you get further north past Trappers creek and Moose creek there are no more trout but lots of great grayling fishing up to Healy. The Parks highway river systems are some of the best road accessed fishing in the state and receives far less pressure than some of the other road accessed fisheries. Good luck on your trip and please feel free to reach out if you have any questions,

    Cheers - Adam

  • Hi Burt,

    I would say the middle to back end of June, this gives time for any lingering run off to clear up.

    As for fishing. Along the Alaska Parks Highway, you have several trout and grayling streams. Willow, Little Willow, Sheep, Goose and Montana Creek all provide good trout and grayling fishing. Once you cross Hurricane Gulch, you will be in grayling country. Most clear water streams will hold grayling. You could take a run across the Denali Hwy, in Cantwell, for some small water grayling fishing as well.
