    Default Ingram Creek

    Did a search through the forums and couldn't turn anything up. Just curious if anyone knows if there is anything in there worth making a guy stop and cast a few. When I drive by it on my way to the Kenai I always wonder if there's any fish in there. It's small but being connected to the ocean so close it's gotta make you wonder if there's any dollies that come in there in the fall. Anybody ever fished it? Also are any of the turnagain arm steams any good in the winter? It sucks driving all the way to the kenai but it's worth it when you get into some of those big dollies and trout

    There is a run of pinks up Ingram, and I've heard murmurs of a handful of silvers, though I've never seen that myself. Since there's food in eggs and decomposing carcasses, I wouldn't be surprised to see dollies in there in the fall.

    in early spring, or maybe right now if its not froze up, i would try fishing the confluences.....examples: california creek/ glacier creek (girdwood)...i would drive a little farther and try fishing either Hope or the confluence of canyon/sixmile creeks......

    I'd look for systems with lakes, dollies over winter in lakes, I wouldn't be supprised in turnagain arm dollies wintered in skilak, I bet a ton winter in portage, probably carmen lake, maybe some others. They move out in the spring with the smolt.
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
