  • Mat-Su lakes

    Anyone been out ice fishing here locally in the valley yet? Thinking about trying Matanuska Lake. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks!

      Nope no one has been doing any fishing at all, if you were to go you'd be wasting your time since no one is doing any fishing at all.

        Why the cynical response? Is it not reasonable to conjecture that some but not every member on this forum has been ice fishing in the Mat-Su? I for one obviously have not. I was looking for input to help with having an enjoyable day on the ice and I am sorry you did not understand the context of my question.

            I have not fished Matanuska Lake since last winter, but it is always a good one to get the youngsters on. We have always done good there for little fish.

            Good luck.

              You obviously don't understand sarcasm, as indicated by the smiley face,. Just making a little fun is all. Relax.

                jeez why dont you go cry about it.....welcome to the forum dude and please, dont use those big fancy words, its better to blend in.......

                now since you are new to the mat-su valley, may i suggest some possible locales, but no garantees of fish...Irene, Kepler, Bradley, and Echo lakes near the palmer/wasilla interchange off the Glenn can all be productive with some good fish possible....they all have rainbows and landlocked salmon. look at the fish and game stocked lakes page, pick a lake, and just try it. there are maps of the lakes, stocking information and directions.....if you wanna thank me, just give me a rep point....hope this helps http://www.sf.adfg.state.ak.us/State...on/MgtAreaID/2

                  Lots of little fish in Matanuska Lake. I fished it quite a bit in the past but never really caught anything for size. If you're gonna fish that area then I'd rather hit up Kepler-Bradley lakes...

                        dont waste your time at flathorn, that lake is just fished out, no one catching anything. you might get lucky though if you sit there 10 hours and catch 1.

                          some buddies went to flathorn during spring break got to the lake just before daylight. rounded the corner and there were headlight and lamps everywhere. probably 50 folks there and 100 traps in the water.The russians had been there for 3 days. although this is typical for them to fish that lake out every year we did have good results earlier in the year with 18 fish between 3 of us 3 pushing 10lbs. Not anymore this year gotta hit it early before the ruskies get there.. Also heard red shirt was slow last week as well.

                            flathorn lake

                            So why haven't the Russians been busted yet? They've been pulling this S*** for like at least 5 years now. :mad: Talked to people who have seen them do this and called the troopers but yet nothing it seems has happened.

                            50 folks and 100 tip ups is not illegal. I understand that. But I remember a few years ago when they were putting close to 10 tip ups out per person. Disgusting.

                              Funny you mention "Russians got to em" for Mat-Su lakes, I've heard the same things being said about Quartz Lake in the interior...
                              You know your not catching any fish when you start talking about the weather...
