Hope is a very small town located south of Anchorage. If you are looking for some excellent river fishing without the crowds, this just might be the place for you. The town has just a couple of fishing guides and a small number of lodging options. Fishing is very good for salmon and trout. Twentymile river, resurrection creek and six mile creek are good places to fish and there is a guide service that will take you out on these waters. Hope is not too far from the Kenai river, which offers some of the most fantastic fishing in the world. The crowds are there, but there is a reason for that. Fish are everywhere.
