Heres a warm welcome to the 2013 season. This last weekend brought in clear skies and warm Spring temps which encouraged a fair number of anglers to hit the creeks and lakes. On most waters, the ice is just starting to open up, while others are wide open. Water has been low and clear with the cold nights still freezing the upper basins. But the weather forecast for the next week is for warmer days with rain which is perfect for enticing the trout and dollies out of the lakes and into the streams and estuaries and fishing will only get better as we move into May.
Rumors of early steelhead are floating around, but no confirmed reports yet around Juneau. Decent reports came in from the Situk from last week, but we havent heard too much from the weekend. Our guess is that steelhead will start to trickle into the water around Juneau with the upcoming rains and the Situk will see a good number of fish move in as well. Be ready to get after it!
