    Default Where to Go this Weekend?

    Any Suggestions? I have Monday off, so does anybody have any suggestions as to where the best fishing is this weekend? hmm.....I guess how far isn't a problem, just looking to possibly get out of Fairbanks, still have the fishing fever, as I'm sure everyone on here does. Thanks!

    Default Where did you go?

    So where was it?

    Tennesse was not bad for me today. check your email.

    We need to go South and look up the Jedi down there when I get home.

    Yeah I just got your email this morning. Nice!

    I figured south is the place to go, but is there any decent places to fish. Kenai is pretty far from here, I know from reading on here lately that catch rates are pretty good there. Does anybody have a valley update?

    If I lived in fairbanks I'd be swinging flies in the clearwater or the gulkana, most likely the gulkana...
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Thumbs up

    Yeah, I did the clearwater three times this year already, kinda tired of the salmon and incidental grayling. Gulkana would be nice also, heard you need to raft it to get into any good rainbow fishing. I'm thinking the Gulkana at the Sourdough Campground, or the Talkeetna/Valley stream somewhere. Got a day or two to decide.

    Talkeetna area you definately need a jet boat to get into fish this time of year everything has probably fled the parks highway streams.

    Options are pretty limited this time of year, if there are lakes without ice (are there???) troll leeches.

    There isn't much ice on the lakes up here yet, but hard water is definently fast approaching up here with the snow coming early and all. Some of the smaller ponds have had some ice on them. There are some resident rainbows in the Gulkana, haven't heard much on where you can find them roadside though.

    There were a lot of Red carcasses at Gunn Creek when we came back a week and a half ago, so there might be some lakers and maybe grayling hanging out near the mouth where it dumps into Summit Lake. Too far for me to go, though
