    Default North slope fishing opportunities

    Just curious on fishing prospects up here in greater prudhoe bay area sag,put rivers etc. This will be my first summer on the slope and any advice on what's available and or what gear to use would be greatly appreciated.I fly fish and use spinning rods as well.

    Thanks Much,Tim

    some good char and laker fishing!!! Spoons worked on us in the sag....I didnt bother bringing the long rod along. I'm sure any smolt pattern would work.

    I know some guys fish the little channel by the Milne Point turn while heading to Kuparuk. A little spinner or fly rod with dries would work for the grayling.

    Default years ago, I believe north dock

    Right on the ocean caught char and then had the camp cooks, cook it up and split the dinner with them.
    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    we used to fish the west dock for char (or D/V or what ever they are, in the 70's they were called char) used pixie's and the like. our best times were driving down the haul road for grayling, load up a pickup with fuel, tires and beer (ops did i just say that camp bootlegger would kill me for that) and head down the road with a small bq!!! we would go as far as pump 3 and further (more driving than fishing but after 3or4 months it was fun). all kidding aside anywhere on the Sag or Kuparik you'll have fun.
