  • 2020-21 Ice Reports

    Hey everyone, I’m new to the site and am excited to be a part of the community!

    I’m an avid angler, although still inexperienced in many ways as the game is always changing and I find new ways to spend my money at various fly shops...

    Anyways, I am getting into ice fishing this year with the family and am wondering if there are any thickness reports to be known? I live in Anchorage, but am willing to travel north or south depending on access, since all of my access will be on foot...

    Any reports or tips will be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thanks in advance

        I'm curious too but I don't have a facebook account. Has anyone been out across the little su towards flathorn or figure 8 lakes?

          No updates on their Facebook yet, I plan on checking some of the Anchorage lakes tomorrow. I saw some ice shelters on Sand Lake and Campbell Point... I’ll post what I find.

            The Anchorage municipality has a ice thickness report on their page. I just do a google search for Anchorage ice thickness. When I checked this morning it was not being reported yet.

              I was able to fish Campbell Point (beer can) on Saturday and measured 5 inches... although the weather from the last couple days may have changed the conditions. I’m still glad I was able to get the kids out before the turn in weather. Lots of land locked salmon for the kids to catch!

                    Flew over Figure 8 and all it neighboring lakes on the 17th and tons of machine tracks on them and seen people fishing at the lake narrows and also at Keyhole Lake.

                      Thanks for that. I guess that answers if it is accessible. I’ve got the itch! We are also going to try spearing this year. Should be fun.

                          How much ice do you need for your plane?

                            6 inches will support a Cub. But I want 8” at minimum.

                              I'm new to Alaska (and Anchroage) and have never been ice fishing. I am starting to see quite a few tents on the ice. Looks like it could be a fun way for my kids to catch their first fish!! If you have any advice or tips you learned (thinking since you recently started ice fishing you might have some good input) I would sure appre kate it! <br/><br/>Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk<br/><br/>
