Area Sport Fishing Reports

September 08, 2014

Area rivers remain high and muddy, so fishing in flowing waters will not be good until the rivers clear up a bit. Arctic grayling are moving downstream in the rapid runoof streams such as the Salcha and Chena rivers. If or when the water levels drop and clear in these rivers, larger fish will be available in the lower reaches.

The silvers are in the Tanana River and should be moving up the Delta Clearwater in about two weeks. This is a good time to fish for Arctic grayling in the Delta Clearwater using an egg pattern.

Area lakes have been stocked and with the rivers running muddy, your best bet for a fishing opportunity will be in area lakes. As the waters cool, the fish are more ready to bite.

Remember to check your regulations and emergency orders for the waters in which you plan to fish.

This report will be updated when the ice is thick enough to walk on.

Good Fishing!
