    Default Eklutna Tailrace Silvers ?

    Saw on the news the water level is going down.
    Any reports of silvers being caught ?

    What I've seen in maybe 2 hours spent at the tailrace in the last couple weeks is sockeye being caught with bait (shrimp and roe) under a bobber.

    I had no idea that the tailrace has a sockey run.

    Those sox are most likely on their way to Jim Creek. All that I saw caught (plus the one I caught using bait) were right at the mouth and not up in the tailrace itself.

    I didn't even realize that, makes sense though. Thanks for the clarification.

    Saw lots of people there Sunday .
    More fishermen than fish.

    Water still looked a little high.

    Heard the early morning crew caught a few.

    Might try it some morning this week.
