Well, we have had floaters and fishermen on the upper Gulkana less than 2 weeks, thank you ice! And the fishing reports are coming in so I thought I would share with you.
Lakers... Fantastic! My groups have been hitting the lakers hard at Paxon and are catching lots and big fish.
Rainbows...Crazy! The rainbows are thick in the canyon and plentiful below the canyon and above the West Fork. The canyon is very hard fishing due to the amount of water that is flowing through but the guys who are working the holes hard are seeing good results! Rainbows in the 4+ pound range and lots of happy faces.
Grayling... Thick. The major complaint has been keeping the Grayling off of the streamer when you are targeting the Rainbows!
Reds??? 2 groups have come out with a report of bright Reds above the West Fork at or beyond spawned out phase. I am a bit puzzled with this as I don't expect to see Reds up there until Late June or more likely July. Anyone else finding Spanned out Reds up there?
I should have some new pics from these groups soon and I will add them to my photo pages and stick a few on the Forum.
Tip of the week. Get out there and catch some fish!
