Gold Panning

Bertha Creek, from its confluence with Granite Creek, upstream to where the powerline crosses the creek is a designated recreational gold pannning area.  Granite Creek is closed to recreational mining because of its salmon spawning habitat. 

Recreational gold panning on the Chugach consists of using hand tools, panning, sluicing and suction dredgingwith a 4" or smaller intake hose.

No hydralic mining or use of earth-moving equipment is allowed. 

Work only in the active stream channel or unvegetated gravel bars.  Do not dig in stream banks!
