It has not happened yet, but I expect to see an emergency order by the end of the week for the Little Susitna River, delaying the use of bait. As of now we can use bait starting next Monday 6 Aug, but based on the rumors I have heard at the boat launch and camp ground, most of us are expecting an E.O. like last year.
I have fished there (from the shore) 4 times in the last week, and things are just now picking up for silvers. I caught 3 today, and the daily totals have been getting better. The chums are great fun if you can find them. I managed to catch one of each species except for sockeye today. Would have given a critical part of my anatomy for a red today!
I hope I am wrong here, but it would be good to check the E.O.s before fishing bait there next Monday.
