Is catching a sheefish in Interior Alaska on your bucket list? If so, you will definitely want to tune in for this fishing forum! The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), Division of Sport Fish, will be hosting an online fishing forum titled, “Fishing for Yukon River Sheefish” on the Alaska Department of Fish and Game YouTube channel.
