    Default Interior fishing

    This is the time to start bragging as the ice breaks and the line gets tight. How soon can you hook in to those starving fish?

    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Default last year

    Me and the old wife had grayling on in late April as soon as ice broke.

    Default Grayling

    I used to start catching grayling in the sloughs around the 20th of April when I lived up there a few years back. Bead head nymphs!

    Default Ice Out?

    Looks like not this year...I was catching grayling on the fly 14 April last year (looked at date on my pics). I was ice fishing this last Fri-Sat and the lake is still a solid 3 feet + (new video on youtube) been seeing slight openings...I do not think enough until the Chena starts filling up and pushing into the slough.

    Not seeing it for at least another week 1/2 unless temps get hotter.

    Drove over the bridge in Fairbanks today, looks like the ice is starting to move but there is plenty left... Watch for the bergs, I always do ok if I can find the schools of grayling as they move through in the hundreds following ice out. If I'm to guess this year... I am kind of hopeful considering late snow etc. but I am hoping to start on the rivers by May 10, give or take this year, about 3 weeks behind as I recall from the last few springs...
