Crystal, Glacier and Moraine lakes open to king salmon fishing

Posted: June 19, 2014 - 11:02pm

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced that Glacier, Moraine and Crystal lakes will open to king salmon fishing from June 18, 2014 through Dec. 31, 2014. The bag and possession limit will be four king salmon, any size.

The Department stocked Crystal, Glacier and Moraine lakes on May 30 with hatchery-raised king salmon that are five to seven inches in length. The purpose of the lake stocking is to provide additional freshwater sport fishing opportunity, especially for youth in the Juneau area. This project is conducted through the cooperative efforts of the ADF&G Division of Sport Fish, the U.S. Forest Service and Douglas Island Pink and Chum, Inc.

These stocked lakes can be accessed by the trail system that winds through the Mendenhall Glacier Recreation Area. Trailheads to the area are located behind the U.S. Forest Service Juneau Ranger District office and near the Mendenhall River on Back Loop Road, and at the end of Dredge Lake Road. Trail maps posted at the trailheads and at various locations throughout the trail system identify the location of all lakes within the recreation area.

For additional information, contact the Division of Sport Fish Region 1 office in Douglas at 465-4270.
