From an ADFG News Release:

The sport fish daily bag and possession limit for northern pike in all lakes and flowing waters of the Minto Flats area (including the Chatanika and Tolovana rivers, and Minto Lakes) is decreased to 2 fish per day, only one of these fish may be 30 inches or more in total length.

This emergency order is effective from 12:01 A.M. Friday, June 1, 2007 through 11:59 P.M. October 14, 2007 (when the pike sport fish season is closed by regulation).

Over 750 fish were harvested in the Chatanika River subsistence pike fishery from January 1 through February 22, 2007, therefore this sport fish daily bag and possession limit reduction is mandated by the Minto Flats Northern Pike Management Plan (5 AAC 70.044).

Questions or comments are welcome and should be directed to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game – Division of Sport Fish, Fairbanks Regional Office, 907-459-7228.
