    It's fishing fun Saturday at Twin Lakes.

    Alaska Department of Fish and Game representatives dropped in on Capital Chat Friday to invite everyone, from fishing enthusiasts to those who want to learn how to fish, to Juneau Gastineau Rotary Club's "Family Fishing Day at the Lake."

    David Love says the lakes have been stocked with about 8,000 king salmon and they are larger this year, 8 to 10 inches each in length. He says the fish provide not only fun fishing opportunities during the event, but throughout the season. He estimates about 100 poles were out at a time during last year's event.
