Bike-Fishing Alaska's Crescent Lake

May 18, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

In the Anchorage Daily News, Ken Marsh gives advice on biking to and fishing remote waters like Crescent Lake in Chugach National Forest. “My fishing tackle included a four-piece, five-weight Sage fly rod; reel with floating line; a couple of fly boxes containing a selection of my favorite lake streamers (marabou Lake Leeches, small Woolly Buggers and sparsely tied Muddler Minnows); and an assortment of dry-flies and tippet material. Beyond that, I carried a compact bicycle tire pump; first-aid kit; lighter; a basic bicycle repair kit; food; bear spray; bug dope and a light jacket.”
