(9/30) Attention, Cordova sport anglers: remember that leaving fish, bait, and fish carcasses at trailheads and along stream banks can attract bears which is dangerous for people and bears. Stop fishing when bears are near, as splashing fish attract them. Chop up and discard fish carcasses in the fast current. And when using bait, be clean. Don’t leave a mess that will attract bears and teach bears to look for food from anglers! Remember, we are all visitors in bear country.
Let’s be respectful, keep bears wild and anglers safe. Also, new regulations are in effect for coho salmon sport fishing in all rivers crossing the Copper River Highway:  Once you have reached your daily limit of three coho, bait may not be used for the rest of the day in any of these streams; please consult your Southcentral Sport Fishing Regulation booklet for details. This message brought to you by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and the U.S. Forest Service.
