  • Quartz Creek

    Has anyone fished Quartz in the spring before the closure? I would think some dollies and maybe some rainbows would be backing out from higher up in the watershed, e.g., Tern Lake? Maybe some rainbows moving up from Kenai Lake to spawn?

    I do not think dollies and rainbows spend the winter in streams like Quartz. Based on ADF&G and USFWS radio tag studies these fish overwinter in the lakes or in some cases in the big rivers. I have fished the mouth of Quartz several times in the spring and have never caught a fish. I think most Kenai system rainbows spawn in the Kenai and not in the tribs. This is also true in other large systems like the Susitna for example. The fish drop out of the tribs in the fall and overwinter in the big river.
