    Default New fishing areas around anchorage

    I currently live on base, I've been fishing the lakes on base and catching nothing but little trout. I wanna catch something more satisfying, where can I go that's not to far away. I currently have my King tag too. Please and Thank you!

    You can try for kings on Ship Creek. Other than that best bet is a 2 hour ride down to the Russian for reds. Not much else salmon wise going on till the Silvers start to arrive in July. Can catch bigger trout/char in some of the lakes off base. Try Campbell Point in Anchorage, or Kepler/Bradly up towards Palmer. If you don't have one yet pick up a copy of The Highway Angler. It's a great book to have for finding places to fish. I used it a bunch when my wife first got stationed here trying out different lakes.

    You need to read the regulations first. Lots of people don't and get their tickets quickly for fishing where they shouldn't.

    There can be some nice trout on base but you need a canoe to get away from the little hatchery fish.

    Ship Creek closes tonight for Kings by EO. Opens for Silvers in mid-July.
    I may be slow, but I get where I'm going!
