    Default kennicott/McCarthy fishing?

    A couple of my friends and I are going to the Kennicott mines this weekend. Does anyone know of any good fishing along the way (any kind of fish will do). Thanks for any advice.

    Silver Lake, just past the bridge a little way, private launch and camping, the guy wants money but he will rent you a boat, with motor so that is cool. Some public access, but you can only be shown the area, as I cannot describe to you the way to the water and it is a fair walk around the lake. Large Rainbows

    Strelna Lake and Creek, short walk, best fished with a canoe or belly boat. Grayling and Mediocre Rainbows

    Couple of unnamed lakes near McCarthy, you will see them from the road, short hike. Grayling

    Default Dipnet

    You can also dipnet in the Copper River at Chitna on your way.
