Freshwater Fishing

  • Fishing for resident species such as rainbow trout, Arctic char, Arctic grayling, and northern pike is reported be very good to great. Spinners, spoons, and flies should work well until salmon spawning begins and egg imitations become more productive.
  • King salmon are beginning to arrive in Bristol Bay streams and sport fishing effort is increasing. Spinners, spoons, plugs, and bait (cured roe) should work well.
  • Sockeye salmon are now showing up and should be abundant enough to target soon. Standard “flossing” methods that are applied to fishing sockeye throughout the state should be productive in Bristol Bay as well.

Saltwater Fishing

  • Halibut fishing near Protection Point is reported to be slow to fair with mixed success.
