    Default Fishing in Fairbanks...

    Hi all. I will be in the Fairbanks area for a couple of weeks the begining of October. Was wondering if I could get some input and advice on where I can go to get in some fishing (from the bank). I will be primarily in and around the Eielson AFB area. Not real concerned with any specific species. (although I do enjoy pike fishing). Also if there is any special rules or baits that would help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance

    Delta Clearwater is a good bet for Bank Fishing. If you have some waders there is a pretty good spot up around the corner from the State Campground. It is a pretty fun place to fish for the day, be sure to layer up, that river is freezing cold, even in the summer.

    Fish On!

    Quartz lake is the best. No need to fish from shore. You can rent a boat (most years). CHeck out the fishing reports:

    BigCox, I agree, fishing on the delta clearwater is prime. The grayling love the flies. Here are the techniques I use to catch the most fish:

    Yeah it was definitely worth the drive from Fairbanks when I lived there. It amazed me to catch Grayling on Salmon flies when I was fishing it. Last year there was even a hatch of bugs that allowed me to dry fly fish the river in October. Talk about bad-ass! I'm definitely making it back there during mid-summer for some dry-fly grayling fishing.

    Fish On!
