Alaska's freshwater fishing is at its best from June to September, when the rivers ripple with five species of salmon returning to spawn, and other species like Dolly Varden, Arctic char and cutthroat and rainbow trout are at their peak. Many of the best fishing spots are easily accessed from Alaska's highways; all you need is a rental car, a guidebook and some basic gear. On the other side of the spectrum, you can stay at a remote fishing lodge where the guides will take you straight to the best fishing holes every day, or book a fly-in adventure with a float plane that ferries you to remote, little-fished lakes and streams.
