fishing while in Alaska in August

we are taking a 3 day cruise and 7 day bus/rail exertion into Alaska. we have limited free time but wanted to try fishing. The free days we have to plan personal exertions are in Juneau, Whitehorse, Denali, and Anchorage. Which location would be best for Salmon fishing? and can you give me contact information for the community.

Exactly when in August, as that will determine salmon runs?

Love the typo " 7 day bus/rail exertion"..........got me laughing this morning, because that's what this trip sounds like to me, too.....

I wouldn't waste my time in Juneau on a fishing trip where you MIGHT catch salmon......instead take a whale watching trip, helicopter to land on a glacier, floatplane over the glaciers to Taku Lodge......way too many other things to do for you excursions there......

This site should help you with fishing regulations www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=home.main

Also, how much time do you have on the Anchorage day? Are you willing to spend the whole day traveling, fishing and then traveling back to Anchorage? Will you have a rental car to get where you need to go to fish? How much money are you wanting to spend (some guide services can be more expensive than people think they will be- especially up here)?
