Flow out of Palisades Dam was dropped to 11,000 cfs last night. Let’s see what impact is on fishing, especially in riffles. Several dead or troubled whitefish have been spotted in the river below Byington. Reason for this situation is presently unknown. But IDF&G requests if you encounter whitefish in trouble on the river, but still alive, retrieve them if possible. Pack them on ice (Don’t freeze ’em!) and take to the IDF&G office on Commerce Drive. IDF&G is conducting analyses on collected whitefish in attempts to solve this situation.
