Salmon May 3rd 2005
Â· No kings have been reported caught in the Eklutna Power Plant Tailrace, but a few should start trickling in any day now.
Â· It is still early, but a few king salmon may begin to show this week at the mouths of the Deshka River and Alexander Creek, as well as the Little Susitna. This is one of the most scenic places to fish here as Mt.McKinnley(Denali) is right across the Susitna river, on a clear day, it is
Â· Water levels are still high and turbid for the mouths of the Parks Highway streams, so if you want good fishing for rainbow trout, char and grayling you might want to stick to the area lakes.
All area lakes have fish in them. Most are stocked by ADF&G, just a matter of the ice going out to fish them.
There will be an extra weekend of king salmon fishing in Susitna River Unit 2 streams (p. 47), and in the East Fork of the Chulitna River (p. 52). For 2005, the extra weekend is July 9-11
