Thread: Anchorage & Valley Motor Restrictions

    Default Anchorage & Valley Motor Restrictions

    Does anyone know where I can find the motor restrictions on lakes in the Anchorage, Palmer and Wasilla area? I have a 9.8 hp 4 stroke outboard.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated (I've searched on the adfg website, but the results are either river, kenai, related or the links no longer work).

    I believe there are only two lakes in Anchorage you can use gas engines on, lower Fire Lake in Eagle River, and it's restricted to 50hp, and for the life of me the other lake in Anchorage escapes me.

    Also you can run the lakes on the E fork of the Moose River in Stirling as they are limited to under 10hp.

    Sand Lake in Anchorage also allows gas motors. Not sure of the hp limit.

    If I remember correctly there are only a few lakes that are restricted to electric motors in the Valley. The Kepler Bradly complex seems to be the largest part of that. A few lakes are restricted to 10hp such as Memory Lake.

    I thought Cambell Lake was open to the use of gas motors as well but has no public access to speak of.
