The Dshka Landing reports they will most likely be open by this weekend. Make sure you give them a call to make sure before you drag your boat all the way down there. I do expect there to be very few fish there. But it will be nice to get the boat out and running.
The launch at the Deshka Landing is ice free today but the parking lot needs a is still muddy and they will need to do some more work on it before people can start launching boats. The Landing also reported ice have been seen on the Susitna River in big pieces. Skwenta and Deshka have been reported open. Yentna has been reported open at Lake Creek.

We have some spots open for catch and keep days but not many. I suggest if you wanted to fish with a group of 4 you should contact me soon about scheduling a trip.
