I'm Maarten from the Netherlands and this summer i have planned a go on a bike trip across North America. I will leave Anchorage on july the 1st and hoping to be in Vancouver some 3 months later. To keep the cycling fun i want to swap the bike for a rod from time to time. I fish do quite a lot here in europe but i have no idea what i can expect in Canada.
I'm thinking of buying a 10ft telescopic casting rod and some lures, and mainly fish from the shores. This since i'm not verry famliliar with fly fishing at the moment.
Could you guys help me out on wich rod and lures i will be needing? Also what kind of fish can i expect? is it possible to do some nice fishing from the shores and what kind of permits are requierd?
My route goes from Achonarge, fairbanks, dawson, watson lake, prince rupert, vancouver island......if somebody wants to share some nice spots allong that route please let me know
