  • Nome Creek or Jim River?

    Anyone seen either of these lately? Are they as high as upper Chena?

    A friend was just up at Nome creek the other day and he said it was still blown out. Didnt sound very promising.

        I didn't notice the Jim River, but the South Fork of the Koyukuk was as high as I've ever seen it on Sat. The 19th. was flying over going into Bettles. They are getting more rain there now...Tis the Summer for lake fishing....

            How about now? What's Nome Creek look like and has anyone fished it this late in the fall? Can you pick 'em up on dries in the afternoon on a crisp September day?

              Most all the rivers north of Fairbanks are blown out from a summer of high water. a flash flood tore through last week.

                FWIW, while the upper Chena is still quite high there are spots with excellent fishing.

                As an aside, it looks like there's solid rock underneath the CHSR mile 25 pit because it's not draining at all - it's just gotten higher and higher and higher, and the shore is basically gone.
