Home to over half of Alaska’s population, Southcentral is a playground of activities from world-class fishing to hiking and wildlife viewing. With mountains and lakes, Southcentral offers the advantages of remote wilderness, but is linked via roads. World-class rainbow trout and salmon shimmer brilliantly, beckoning to prospective anglers. Southcentral has the amenities travelers seek, while serving as a gateway to the wilderness experience.

Had a great time. This is my 6th trip to Alaska, 4 on vacation & 2 on business (but I was able to tack on a day trip for these, too). We love going to the Kenai Penisula. The fishing is great of out of Homer, with Capt. B for halibut & silvers. Also, in Soldatna, get a guide with Strieby's Guide Service. The lower Kenai is the place for kings. In Homer, the places we like to eat are Fat Olives, Cups, & the Sourdough Bakery. Food is great. This is the first time we have used bed & breakfast places to stay, which really worked out great. This year was a little on the cool side, but we didn't mind getting away from the heat. The salmon seemed to be running a little late, too, but I still did OK & shipped home 97 lb for three days (slivers, king, & halibut). I like hiking without many people around, which is the way it is in Alaska. This year my sister & her hsband went on a separate trip, & they fell in love with Alaska, said they now understood why I keep coming back.
