There can still be some good fishing on the road, but it ain't the same.

I know that when i go fishing, I am fishing with people that pay $10k a week to fish the same river as me. I also know that I am in arguably the best fishing spot in the world. However, the pike fishing and halibut fishing here sucks.

Right but actually my original point was that the basic road system is average Alaska fishing and quite seasonal on targets. That's all I really said then folks got their panties in a wad and pointed out how terrific it really is, proving they really don't know.

Best Silver fishing I ever did was in Uniakleet. Fly in have a local take you up river 15 miles and make a two day float back to the ocean ... Around August 20 - spectacular.

Best Lake Trout I have personally had is Lake Illamaiia down south a bit. Magnificent.

World class Steelhead in the Situku River by Yakutat.

You won't be driving to these spots anytime soon so you're pretty much stuck to the road system and I believe OP's opening statement was they wanted to come to Alaska and do some great fishing. Not going to happen I'm afraid because, as others point out, you can not get it all in a single trip and it you want the best you will indeed need an airplane.

I had the state record pike two years in a row but again need the airplane. Fine a clear creek dumping into the Yukon and hang on honey ... 30-40" all day long.

Only did the Halibut thing once and it was out of Valdez - no big deal, but some mighty fine eats.

I do agree that Kodiak has some good fishing.
