Why Do Anglers Love Alaska During The End Of Summer?

August 27, 2018

Summer is drawing to a close, but that doesn't mean you've run out of time for that fishing trip you've been dreaming of. In fact, Alaska is one of the best places in the U.S. to visit in the month of August.


Approximately 11% of visitors in 2016 came to Alaska specifically to fish. Here's why anglers love Alaskan waters during the end of the summer season.

 

Long Days Without The Crowds


During the summer, Alaska is home to some long days. In fact, Alaska is home to the midnight sun, a natural phenomenon that happens during the summer months in areas north of the Arctic Circle when the sun stays visible at midnight.


This can be tricky to get used to, but it also means you're not restricted to daylight hours. Whenever you're ready to fish, you can head out on the water without having to worry about the sun going down right when you're catching your stride.


What's more, you can enjoy these long summer days without worrying about competition. Alaska is massive with 3.2 million acres of land and water in just the Alaska State Park System. Because of this, you won't have to worry about bumping into other visitors regularly when you're out adventuring on the water.

 

Alaska Offers A Challenging Frontier Experience


It's one thing to go fishing on your family lake and another to fish in the large waters of the Alaskan frontier. The wilderness in Alaska is largely untouched and when you stay here, you can be sure to feel a sense of adventure you can't find anywhere else.


The fish in Alaska can get pretty big and they're far from docile. This makes fishing out in Alaska more than a fun experience, it makes it a rewarding challenge. When you catch a fish, you can feel proud knowing you put some serious sweat into your catch.
