Area Sport Fishing Reports
Note: Presence of a particular fish species does not necessarily mean that it is legal to fish for that species. In addition, some waters have terminal tackle restrictions and all have bag and possession limits that may differ between drainages. Please consult current sport fishing regulations for the waters in which you plan to fish.
Sometimes sport fishing regulations are modified inseason, usually in the case of salmon. Please review these “Emergency Orders” prior to wetting your line.
Most large lakes along the Dalton Highway corridor still have some ice on them, but fishing for lake trout, Arctic grayling, and Arctic char can be good along the open edges near shoreBe sure to know what you are catching, as Arctic char and lake trout look very similar. Fishing for Arctic grayling in creeks and lake outlets should be good, and a few burbot can be caught in the Sagavanirktok, Colville, and Ivishak rivers, as well as Galbraith and Toolik lakes.
