Our Local Area Fishing Report
Our Alaska fishing report page is a great resource to gather information on current fishing conditions in south central Alaska, special regulation changes, salmon run forecasts, escapement numbers and current effective fishing techniques, lures, flies and presentations.
- June 17, 2015 -- Consistent pushes of king salmon into the river has contributed to very good, consistent fishing with spin and fly gear in the upper river. We are loving having dozens of great fishing holes all to ourselves upstream with great king fishing success. With water temps in the mid 50s, the kings are very active. Lake Creek has cleared up considerably, so smaller, darker drift rigs and fly patterns are currently the ticket to consistently produce strikes. We are seeing many 40" plus fish so far this season and seeing as these are all "hens" (females), it looks like we'll soon have some very large "bucks" (males) entering the river. Bucks typically are 5-10" longer on average and can reach up to 65 pounds in our river system. Overall, it's been a tremendous start to the 2014 fishing season! Sonar counts in area rivers are showing a strong king salmon run for this summer.
- June 10, 2014 -- Wow, the first big push of king salmon rolled into our river this week just in time to kick off our 2014 summer season! We have experienced a warmer than average early spring here in South central Alaska, but June has brought about a cold spell with much needed precipitation. The cloud cover and cooler weather has river conditions and water temperatures ideal for the onset of the king salmon run. We have already caught a good number of solid kings on plugs and drift rigs throughout the lower river. Sharon Kolodziej landed a beautiful 37 pound chromer which this week sets the mark as the largest king of the season. Fly fishing for native rainbow trout fishing has been epic with silver streamers being the go-to fly.
