    Default Campbell Creek Trout Stocking. Where to fish?

    So last Summer, ADFW stocked several thousand trout into Campbell Creek. I didn't get to fish it last year due to work, but this year I'm hoping to be able to fish it with ultralight spinning gear and fly rod. The only question I have is where do I fish? I know that there are trout spread throughout the creek, but the stockers that were put into the creek last June probably haven't moved very far. Can anybody give me tips, hints locations ect, or any other info regarding trout fishing at Campbell? Thanks.

    The rainbows that were stocked in June had spread out pretty well by late July. The rainbows were stocked where greythorn3 mentioned in June. I was catching them well above Lake Otis a month later. Where you fish will depend on when you fish. Come late July you have to find the spawning salmon to get into really good fishing.

    Are we talking King St, or Martin Luther King Jr St?
    How big are those stockers?

    As you can see the rainbows were about 7.2 inches on average. These were stocked in Campbell Creek near Taku Campbell Lake, which is off of King Street and E. 76th Ave. near Dewey's Cook Inlet.

    I fly fished the creek last summer quite a bit and didnt have much success catching bows, just one... However, I did catch many, many small dollies in July. Good luck.
