    I don't see where it says Nancy Lake is closed as of March 25th. I do see where you may not use five lines for pike after March 15th. Which Long Lake Lake are you referring to? The one past Palmer on the Glenn, the one in the Kepler-Bradley Complex, or the one near Willow Cr. ? The only Long Lake that even closes is the one in the Kepler-Bradely Complex. This is a "Trophy Lake", so there is no retention, no bait, and they close it during the winter ( November 1-April 30) to prevent catch mortality/poaching. X Lake near Talkeetna is setup the same way.

    It'd be helpful to reference page numbers to your specific questions.

    Thanks for clarifying. As fishgod stated, the 5 line rule for pike ends March 15. You can still fish for pike after that date, but you must follow the general regulations for the area/lake.

    It is on the map on page 42, and does not have any special regulations pertaining to it, so follow the general regulations for the Knik Arm area.

    The reason you can't use five lines after March 15th is due to the burbot spawn. During the burbot spawn, there is a higher probability of catching burbot in March & April, especially if using five lines. Since there is no retention and fishing for burbot is not allowed year round on Nancy Lake, this regulation is for conservation of burbot. The same rational and regulation applies to Big Lake as well.
