A killer is stalking the waters of Southcentral Alaska! It is lurking in the shadows, ambushing wild salmon and trout. Many Southcentral lakes and streams are already empty of everything but the killer - northern pike. Soon many of our sportfishing opportunities may be gone. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is partnering with the Alaska Department of Fish & Game to address this issue. You can help report illegal introductions of invasive northern pike in Southcentral Alaska by calling the Alaska Department of Fish & Game invsive species hotline at 877-468-2748.

The Kenai River Sportfishing Association and Kenai River Professional Guide Association have partnered to offer a $5,000 reward leading to the conviction of someone introducing northern pike into Kenai Peninsula. Learn More...
