    Default Open Holes?

    Anywhere in the valley open (besides the sidewalk snow melt ponds) enough for me to cast a line??

    Thanks

    Cotton wood creek is open Ice wise but don't know about fishing legally. Follow Seward Maridian past the Palmer/Wasilla lights for about another quarter mile. Right or left side is open for some casting. Don't have any reports on other than small leads up the Parks...

    He said he wanted to cast a line . Just make sure you have cut the hook off at the bend if you wish to try. No fishing just casting....

    Thanks George, I missed the cast in his post. I heard a rumor that the tailrace has open water.

    Yeah, i know of dollies hanging around the Tailrace... Curious if anyone fishes the Knik river itself?? I saw some spots open already. I have been told that the Knik River is too fast and "Silty"; which is true. But I have fished other rivers that are just as worse and caught fish...
