Oct – December 2005


Kepler Bradley Lake System near Palmer — My sister`s family came out from Anchorage for Thanksgiving Dinner — but before we ate, we went fishing for about an hour. Fishing was good and the kids (down to 3 years old) caught mainly landlocked salmon of about 10 – 12 inches. They also caught a couple Arctic Char. Total number of fish caught ws probably 15 – 20, decent action for only about an hour of fishing. All of the fish were caught using salmon eggs on single hooks. The ice was about 10 inches thick, which is quite thick for this early in the season.


Kepler Bradley Lake System near Palmer — I took 4 guests fishing and the caught at least 50 landlocked salmon and also caught a couple rainbow trout and perhaps 10 Arctic Char. They ended up keeping 30 salmon, 1 rainbow trout, and 4 Arctic Char. All of the fish were caught on salmon eggs in about 3 hours of fishing. Ice was about 18 inches thick and the temperature was about 20 degrees. It was a fun trip with every one catching plenty of fish.
