Alaska Crow Pass Eagle River Fishing in early July? on 05/25/2011 17:45:46 MDT Print View

Hiya,
I'm backpacking the crow pass trail in early July, and I was wondering if there's any Salmon in the Eagle river at that time?
If so, what do I use to catch them?

I'm very new to fishing, so forgive me if I sound naive.
Any other tips on that area are also appreciated.

Thanks!

I just found this via google, but it looks rather promising for you in terms of timing.

THe Eagle River is a glacial river meaning that the visibility will be very poor, causing fishing to be very poor. THe salmon fishing is downstream of where the trail ends at that the Eagle RIver Nature Center. I would also check the alaska Fishing regualtions to make sure fishing for salmon is even legal, most of the time salmon fishing isn't legal where the salmon spawn in the upper river. If you want a backpacking trip with better fishing email me Russp17@gmail.comf I were you I would not plan on fishing the Eagle River. Just enjoy the scenery.
