    Default Nome Creek

    Spent the day up there and was surprised by the quality of the fishing and of the fish. There were very, very few other people up there and nobody else was fishing. An exceptionally nice day.

    I felt the same way a few years back on my first dedicated fishing trip up the Steese!

    It may or may not be a Toll Booth operation from the third week of August through 15 Sept. Just a hint in case you think about a little late summer / early fall fishing in that area.

    buddy and I are talking about heading up there after work tomorrow, how does rain affect this river? looks like its going to rain most of today, will the river get muddy from that much rain?

    I remember going there when I was at Ft Wainwright. 4X4 only. The fishing was incredible. We also took a lot of gold out of there panning and with a sluice.

    There was also a dredge there. Got a lot of gold out of the gravel that was still in the buckets and the sluice.

    Is it true you can take just about any vehicle up there now?

    Pretty much - you even see very large RVs up there. The fishing's pretty good but mostly it's just a nice place to be - the fishing on the Chena tends to be better in both quantity and quality.
