From an ADFG News Release:
The Division of Sport Fish is studying rainbow trout in Willow Creek, a tributary of the Susitna River about 30 miles north of Wasilla. Although Willow Creek supports a popular rainbow trout fishery, the number of trout spawning in Willow Creek is unknown. The goal of the study is to collect information to help the Division sustain the fishery through appropriate management.
Division personnel will be working weekdays on Willow Creek between the mouth and Shirleytown Bridge, and on Deception Creek. A numbered, green plastic tube will be placed near the left side of the dorsal (or top) fin. Tagging will take place May 15 to July 28, 2007.
Tagged rainbow trout may move to other tributaries of the Susitna River. Anyone catching a tagged rainbow trout is asked to note the tag number and contact the Division of Sport Fish with the number plus the location and date of capture. Please do not remove the tag from the fish.
For more information on the project, and to report tagged fish, contact Chris Brockman in the Division of Sport Fish Palmer Area Office at 907-746-6338
