2 Fishing for anadromous, or sea-run, Dolly Varden is best in spring and fall. Bait may mot be used in streams after September 15 unless otherwise noted in the Sport Fishing Regulations.
3 In all flowing waters of the Kenai River drainage upstream from Skilak Lake, only unbaited single-hook artificial lures may be used. Restrictive seasons and bag limits apply to Dolly Varden. Check regulations carefully.
4 Check specific regulations for the lake you intend to fish. Several lakes are closed for part of the year to protect spawning fish.
