Area Sport Fishing Reports
May 19, 2022
- Ice cover is still present on most lakes in Bristol Bay and access to fishing locations is difficult due to snowpack in the mountains and foothills.
- Fishing for resident species such as rainbow trout, Arctic char, Arctic grayling, and northern pike is reported be very good to great in locations where access is possible. Spinners, spoons, and dry flies should work well until salmon begin to arrive in June.
- Halibut fishing near Protection Point is reported to be slow to fair with mixed success.
Please review the emergency orders and advisory announcements below in their entirety before heading out on your next fishing trip.
- There are currently no emergency orders for the Bristol Bay management area.
