    Default Anchor / Deepcreek King troll

    Can Anyone tell me how the sucess rate is in the saltwater king fishery. Coming back from the slope and was thinking of dragging the boat down to the area for the weekend. Had family down memorial day weekend and reported rivers had really poor fishing.

    Default one

    One charter that I talked to out of Ninilchik told me that he had taken 7 kings out of 9 trips. While I was there last weekend he went 2 more trips with no kings.

    Default charter fish

    Some people did have kings in the cooler. I saw a charter come in at the top of the hill on both Sat and Sunday with Kings and Butts both. Sunday had 3 kings hanging....

    Guess I must have just gotten lucky. Here's what we got today right near the south Stariski marker:

    Tuesday we ended up with two nice halibut and two small feeder kings, fishing the north Anchor River saltwater zone. No other kings seen caught. By small I mean around 8-10lbs.

    You just have to poke around enough to find them. Here's one we got around the "green cabin" (south of the south Anchor marker) on Tuesday. This hen is about 25 lbs.



    We also got a small "jack" that my client wanted to keep and also one about 9 lbs. And as you can see we got plenty of butt, too. Here's a picture of our total catch. You can see the smaller kings in there somewhere:

    i just heard that the anchor river closure has been extended to 2 miles.
    also that the kenai and kasilof have had EO restrictions imposed.
    maybe there are already threads addressing this, but i just got home and gotta go....

    Default Weather reports

    I'm thinking about heading down to Deep Creek this weekend or next week. The tides look good for halibut, but I don't know the most accurate way to check the weather (wind) report from Anchorage. I looked at NOAA for Resurrection Bay and might be as good as I can get... but I'm sure if I can pinpoint where the weather is coming from (guess I need to look at a map) I can predict closer to what it will be in 2-3 days...

    Any advice?

    The trolling has very very spotty. Most of the fish I have caught or my friends have caught have been feeders and not spawners. If you can find biat and birds there might be kings around. Trolled for 7 hours on Sat and had 2 kings and 6 halibut. On Monday fished about the same number of hours and had one king, no halibut, 1 red, and 2 dollies. The red hit a silver spoon of all things. Saw only a few other boats with fish, but one had 5 kings.

    Yeah, spotty is the best word for it. I've trolled for hours in one spot without a thing, moved a few miles and caught 3 in just a little over an hour and a half (see my other posts here). And the majority have been feeders. Though both of those 25's the other day were spawners and one had so many eggs in its belly that when I started to cut into it they almost exploded out. I have a feeling it might have been an Anchor king since we were only a few miles from the river mouth.

    Thanks, Dave. I'll try to look up Cliff. I'm screwed if I don't get it fixed.

    Default sporties

    When the shut down the rivers (my guess is soon) will they shut down the salt for the nookies?

    Seems that IF there is underescapement projections that all of us should help - and I don't mean just the sporties during the in-river runs either...what is good for the goose is good for the gander and once your goose is cooked you have to eat it - it won't be pickin grain no more.

    Everyone should share in the conservation burden.

    I agree to a certain degree, but saying that shutting down the saltwater fishery is "sharing in the burden" is not a totally valid statement. I'd say about 80% to 90% of the kings I've caught out there this spring have been feeders and they have no burden on the Kenai Peninsula freshwater return rates for this year, so limiting my ability to catch them would be ludicrous. Should we shut down the king fishing in Res Bay because the Kenai is suffering? I think the expansion of the "no fish" zone is a pretty good compromise, but I've caught plenty of feeders about a mile and 100 ft. from the Anchor River.
