    Correct me if I'm wrong but its an odd # (2013) year so there won't be too many pinks coming into south central this year. Sorry to be the one to tell you but your guna have to wait till next year if you want to catch boatloads of pinks in Hope... I believe that when the silvers start running in the Kenia, there should be some pinks running with them at that time. Good luck... "fishon"

    Kenai pinks will be very slim this year, Hope and Bird Creek tend to get lots of pinks every year.

    They will not be present in catchable numbers at Hope until the end of the third week in July.

    Update- This year is getting weirder by the minute. Apparently, a few silvers are already present in the Little Susitna and a few pinks are present at Hope.

    ArmyFishBoy,

    As stated above, there are some pinks available at Resurrection Creek (Hope), which is typical in any given year for this date. They started showing up about a week ago and are now present in fishable numbers throughout the lower portion of the stream. If you are skilled in sight-fishing and familiar with Resurrection, getting a limit or hooking a dozen or more fish shouldn't be a problem. A decent school arrived on the morning tide today. If looking for fast and frenzied action or something to keep the kids busy, wait at least another week to ten days. The water is running a little high but is very clear. Chums, however, are still very scarce in Resurrection Creek but a few chromers are showing up in nearby Sixmile Creek. And, by the way, don't be too surprised if an early silver appears in the tidal area as Bird Creek-bound hatchery fish sometimes swing by Hope starting about now.

    Good luck!

    Is the river plugged yet? Or is that only even years?

    I drove into the "City", that would be Hope City yesterday and there are fish on the tide, and lots of fisherman...........but very few landed. The weekend of July 20'th is the annual "Hope City" shindig & wagon'trail run. Expect good fishing to start about then.

    Resurrecting this thread - wondering if taking the kiddos down to Hope this weekend would be worth the trip? Thanks in advance.

    NO word? Rats - may just have to charge it with the boys to find out.
    Normal people believe that if something ain't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.

    Suggest you call: 782-3300 (SeaView Cafe') and/or Tito's Discovery Cafe' 782-3274 (NOTE: Hope, Alaska is part of ACS phone co. service area, so calls are local to Los'Anchorage).

    Those pinks caught at Hope must be good eating, fresh from the salt as they are?


    I know we never throw back a pink caught when dip-netting . . can 'em up . . good eating . .


    Do pinks still run in Ingram Creek? Worked in Portage the summer of '62 and recall standing in Ingram Creek amidst a moving wall of humpies surging past my waders.
