NOTICE:
SPORT ANGLERS PROHIBITED FROM USING FELT SOLES IN FRESH WATERS OF ALASKA

Anglers are reminded that effective immediately, footgear with absorbent felt or other fibrous material on the soles are prohibited while sport fishing in the fresh waters of Alaska. The regulation was adopted by the Alaska Board of Fisheries in 2010, to reduce the potential for introduction and spread of invasive organisms, including plants, into Alaska waters. Invasive organisms spread by contaminated waders and other gear, can threaten resident fish stocks and important fish habitat.

FISHING SCHEDULE
All dates are approximates based on prior years of Salmon runs.

KING SALMON:
Third week of June through July 13th. Peak run around the 1st of July. Kings from 15-50 pounds will be caught. Heavy spinning rods with reels capable of holding a minimum of 110 yards of 20 pound test will be needed. If you are fly fishing, a nine weight fly rod would be the minimum weight I would suggest. A reel with a good drag is a must with a floating line.

SOCKEYE SALMON:
Last week of July through second week of August. These schools of fish are often mixed with Silver, Pink and Chum salmon. All of these fish can be caught on light to medium spinning gear. A seven weight fly rod is ideal. A floating line is recommended.

SILVER SALMON:
First of August through the first of September. Peak run mid weeks of August. Fish from 6-13 pounds will be caught. Light to medium spinning gear or fly rods from five weight to seven weight with floating line should be used.

RAINBOW TROUT & ARCTIC GRAYLING:
Year-round native residents. Rainbows from 1-6 pounds (catch and release). Graylings up to 2 pounds. These sportfish can be caught on various crank baits, spinners and spoons. A wide variety of such should be in your tackle box. A lot of lures will be lost in a week's time of fishing. Fly patterns should include various streamers, in a variety of colors. Traditional patterns (i.e., egg imitations, muddler minnows, nymphs, skulpins, leeches, coachmans, etc.) should be on your list. A variety of dry flies should also be included. A mouse pattern and elk hair caddis are both excellent choices. Ultra-light to medium spinning gear or fly rods from two weight to seven, weight with floating line is recommended.
