2017 Fishing Regulations Published

2017sc_sfregs_susitna_river_1.jpgJust one day after the NFL released its 2017 schedule ADF&G published the 2017 fishing regulations for Southcentral Alaska. One is anticipated by millions, the other by dozens. What I’m interested in is who America’s team (the Buffalo Bills) opens up against and where and when am I not allowed to fish.

While I don’t notice any major changes from the past few years, I’m anticipating ADF&G to release additional Emergency Orders on top of the EO’s released earlier this year as soon as salmon return numbers are available. 

ADF&G announced ealier this year that fishing time would be extended on the small streams around Wasilla and Big Lake (I wrote about the change here).

Remember that regulations are always available online but it is a good idea to pick up a hard copy to keep in your vehicle, boat, or bag in case you’re lucky enough to be somewhere without cell service and wifi.
