Fishing Report: July 25, 2019
Mat-Su Valley:

-The lower river near the Little Susitna Public Facility is seeing a variety of salmon being caught including chums, pinks, and coho.

-For a weekend activity try Cottonwood and Wasilla Creeks for sockeye. These fisheries are open 5 a.m. through 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

-Streams at the northern section of Willow Creek are seeing some fair results with rainbow trout. Water is very clear, and levels are great.

-The Fish Creek has sockeye in, escapement expected to be reached, and ADF&G is opening dipnetting July 26th at 6 a.m.!


-Ship Creek is seeing coho and pink salmon coming in right now. Try using spinners and drifting roe for best results. Kings are closed here, so remember to immediately release any accidentals.

-Campbell Creek isn’t yet seeing a strong run of coho, but with a little rain it should pick up!

-Cohos are also slow in Bird Creek, but there are pink salmon.

-Some stocked lakes to try out for Rainbows include: Green, Beach, DeLong, and Rabbit Lakes.


-In the Upper Kenai River, king salmon are doing fair and if you are in the mid to upper Kenai, rainbow trout are excellent.

-Anchor River, Ninilchik River, and Deep Creek are just starting to see Coho Salmon. It’s best to try high tide in the early morning, with small orange and pink beads or small spinners.

-There are increased bag limits for sockeye salmon on the Kasilof River. ADF&G data shows that to date, this year’s escapement of sockeye is the strongest since 2015.
