You might also think about Chocolate Bayou and the upper reaches of Chocolate Bay. Same general area and traditional winter holes for trout.
I haven't heard any good reports from the ANWR this year. That doesn't mean there aren't fish being caught there. A lot of shorebirds fish there and they usually aren't the social media/internet types. There are also a few people who would not tell their mother if they caught nice trout there (I am one such person). ANWR can be good, but it's just a little too far of a drive for me without some legit, current intel. Also, when the tides are low and the winds have blown a bunch of water out of there, that entire flat is 1-2 feet deep for 300+ yards from the shore. Gets pretty devoid of fish at times like that.
