PETERSBURG, AK (2009-03-17) Sport anglers who wade through Southeast Alaska’s creeks and rivers may have to get some new fishing gear in the next two years. That follows a decision by the state Board of Fish at it’s February meeting in Sitka. The board voted to prohibit the use of felt sole waders starting in 2011. It’s a move designed to limit the spread of non-native plants and animals and it may be among the first such bans in the nation.
