According to Alaska department of fish and game, the state has over 3000 rivers, 3 million lakes, and 6640 miles of coastline.
Alaska also boasts some of the largest fish that can be caught, from 100 pound king salmon to halibut that are close to 50lbs. Here is a guide to Alaska Fish and Game’s fishing regions, and the perks of each:
