I flew down to Delta Junction on Sat as well. I flew up and scoped out the river before landing. True, there are not lots of Silvers in the river yet, but there were a few.
I fished for about 4 hours above the boat landing. About 1/2 the time was spent fishing for Silvers. I was able to catch about a dozen. The rest of my time was spent drifting an egg pattern behind those Silvers where I was able to catch around 20 big, fat Grayling up to about 18 inches. I am convinced that there are 20 inch Grayling in the river, but I have never caught one. I have caught a few at 19, but can't quite stretch out that extra inch.
In either case, there are Silvers in the river. Snow on the ground too!
