AK fishing, Alaska Fishing
AK fishing is all about fishing in Alaska.
Coho salmon fishing at Ship Creek has been poor lately and this will continue
Coho fishing in Campbell Creek has picked up with the recent rains, and fish are
moving out of Campbell Lake and into the creek. Expect decent fishing until the
season closure on October 1. Some fish will be water-marked, while some will
still be bright.
The fishing at Bird Creek is always slow this time of year. All the salmon in
this stream have moved upstream into closed waters by now.

Fishing for Coho in the freshwater drainages at the head of Turnagain Arm has
been poor recently and we do not expect it to get much better. Be certain not to
trespass on Alaska Railroad property. If you are caught, you will be fined.
Expect to see bears on any stream you fish in the Anchorage area. Do not tempt
them with easy fish. If you fillet your fish, take a few extra seconds to chop
up the carcasses into small pieces and toss the small pieces into fast-moving
currents. Never let a bear associate people with food. Wear your backpack while
fishing, keep stringers and coolers close by, and be prepared to take them with
you if a bear shows up. Also cut the line of a splashing fish, if it attracts
the attention of a bear. See the “Safety in Bear Country” link below for more

Wildlife Safeguard at 1-800-478-3377.
Stream fishing - Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden
Rainbow trout and Dolly Varden fishing in area streams will be good right now.
“Match the hatch” by using egg patterns and beads. Bunny bugs may also produce
some nice fish.
Remember, Campbell and Chester creeks were not stocked this summer and are
catch-and-release for rainbow trout through midnight, December 31.
The daily limit for Dolly Varden is 5, and the possession limit is 5.
There is no bag limit on pike. Cheney, Sand, and Lower Fire lakes are all lakes
that have been illegally stocked with pike.
Pike are feeding now in preparation for the winter, so between now and ice-up is
a good time to catch pike. Try surface lures, or just a bobber and bait, but be
sure to fish the weeds, where the pike hang out.
Not all lakes will be stocked this summer, so check out the stocked lake link
below to find a recently stocked lake, and take the kids fishing.
Jewel, Delong and Mirror lakes will be stocked with rainbow trout one more time
this fall. The target date is mid-September.
The fall float tube fishing season is upon us. Try fly-fishing from your
belly-boat for rainbows with leech, small caddis, scud, chronomid, and midge
