Here’s more from KTUU:
This summer Alexander Lake was closed to sportfishing as a measure to keep elodea, and invasive and fast-growing waterweed, from being transferred to other bodies of water. Since the lake was closed, Bradley says that all the fish that were tagged should still be there.
Anglers can bring in either just pike heads or the whole body to the ADF&G office in Palmer on Mondays through April 13. Staff will scan the fish head and if it is a tagged fish, the angler will receive a $100 Visa gift card and be entered into a drawing for a $1,000 gift card. Up to 35 gift cards will be issued.
