I tried the Kepler Bradley lake sytem here in the Matanuska Valley yesterday. Every lake I visited had visible spawning trout near shore; 14-24″ range. One lake had 70-80 visible from one spot in a 100′ circle. Fun to see them. These were even feeding, surprising so close to spawning time. I hooked half a dozen in less than an hour and released all of them. Now’s the time to get out and enjoy the weather and open water fishing in Alaska.
