    Default Bird creek?

    Are there opening-closing hours for bird creek? I was planning on heading there tomorrow for the opener and try to slay some pinks and whatever else is swimming around in there. I didnt see any on the regs but I miss stuff and I havent slept in pretty close to a day and a half now.

    You will be able to fish 24/7.

    fishable 24/7 but it's tidal like Ship Creek.. (i.e. only fish either side of high tide)

    I'm going to head down there tomorrow. I'm new to Alaska and never fished down there before or for pinks/silvers or whatever else is down there. Are waders necessary or anything special i should know or bring before i head out of anchorage? Also I checked the tide table for bore tide and it shows it's a prime day for it. Any chance of seeing it from bird creek area?

    Waders are pretty much always recommended. The stream is right off the inlet so yes you will see an influence from the tide. Hopefully the fishing is good tomorrow.

    Yeah I like the chest waders for that reason. I have fallen in a hole with only my hip waders and would have stayed dry if I had my chest waders on. Unless its just nasty mud I wear my chest waders.

    Amen two summers ago I say to my wife "we won't see any bears down here. There are too many friken people!" Five minutes later a three year old brownie pulled up a seat at the table and started feasting just upstream of the boundary. It was a tense march through the woods back to the truck that night.

    I took this pic in 2006 at Bird Creek. I love the lady in the foreground with a fishing rod in one hand, a cell phone to her ear in the other, while her orange-clad child is on a chest-pack, with her back to the bears... Bird Creek can be a fun place to fish!

    I was there that day and for awhile the dad had the little one on him while he was flogging the water. I was waiting for the hook/weight to come back and nail the little guy. My buddy took a photo of the dad fishing with the little one with he bears on the opposite site and ADN gave him $50 to use the photo in the paper. I'll look for it and post it.

    That's so funny! I saw the pic in the ADN that day and had to laugh.

    There were quite a few comments after the pic/article in the newspaper online version, as I remember.
