Well, it's looking like a good year of fishing for us here in Juneau!
The dolly fishing continues to get better everyday. Places to check for Dollies: Everywhere. Remember that Auke Creek opens to fishing on June 1st, as does Eagle Beach/Boyscout Camp. Both spots can be great places to fish at an outgoing tide, or an incoming tide from low. At Eagle Beach in particular, you can try a fly like Pop's Sand lance as well as stinger clousers in olive/white and gray/white.
As for salmon, we have been hearing rumors or kings milling around the area, but none of these rumors have been proven to be true yet. However, sockeye season is soon approaching! Windfall lake closes to fishing on May 31st, and only opens on Wednesday and Saturdays to anglers. You can try your luck for some sockeye on flies such as the Red Hot, Sockeye Lightnings, and Copper Swans.
If ever you have fishing questions, feel free to swing into the shop or give us a call!
