Online Fishing Forum: A Survey of Sport Fisheries in Interior and Northern Alaska

(Statewide) - The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), Division of Sport Fish, will be hosting an online fishing forum titled, “A Survey of Sport Fisheries in Interior and Northern Alaska” on the Alaska Department of Fish and Game YouTube channel. This region includes the Kuskokwim/Goodnews, North Slope, Northwestern, Yukon River, Tanana River, and Upper Copper/Upper Susitna drainages. This presentation will highlight select sport fisheries in Region III, including unique opportunities to catch lake trout, sheefish, northern pike, and burbot where others rarely travel. Hopefully, it will inspire you to plan your next fishing trip in northern Alaska!

It will premiere on YouTube on Thursday, September 23, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. ADF&G staff will be available to answer any questions in real-time on the YouTube chat from 7:00-7:10 p.m. and will be available afterwards to reply to questions using the comment feature. The presentation will then remain on our YouTube channel and can be viewed any time after the premiere.
