Most of Alaska is not accessible by road. But the Southcentral Region is different, from the bottom of the Kenai Peninsula to the edge of Prince William Sound to the heart of the Wrangell Mountains you can get there by driving. There are numerous opportunities to access freshwater fishing right from the road system. Just because it is accessible doesn’t mean it is less impressive. The variety of convenient adventures is impressive.
