  • Fishing in/around Anchorage May 11-16th??

    Wondering if there is any good fishing at this time of year. We fly into Anchorage on Monday (11th) evening and then out on Saturday (16th).
    Prefer something not too far out of Anchorage (2-3 hrs).

    Salmon even running anywhere at this time of year?

    Halibut/Rockfish/Lingcod,Etc. any good in PWS?


    Thanks,
    Brett

    There will be some halibut and king salmon available out of Deep Creek and Anchor Point (salt water) allthough Anchor Point is getting closer to a 3 hour and change drive from Anchorage. This is a good time of year for this area for a combo trip.

      For fishing "in and around Anchorage" you will only be fishing the local lakes and maybe Ship or Campbel Creeks. Of course saltwater fishing is Seward or toward Homer but that is over the 2 hour drive you mentioned.

        lings are closed till july
        I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

          Rockfish should be good out of Whittier, if you can get there I was hoping to head out the first weekend of May but don't think that'll happen with the rock slide.

          Halibut will be spotty out out of Whittier, unless you are on a charter that will run to the S end of Montague.

          Lingcod season is closed until July 1.

          Salmon typically don't hit the streams until Memorial day, but saltwater trolling could be productive for Kings.

          I'd say contact some charters out of Seward, likely your best bet for a day trip out of Anchorage, under 2 hour drive.

          Some lakes may be melted by mid May, just depends on the weather.
          Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

          If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

              It's really too early for anything in the Mat-su mid May, unless the lakes are thawed out, but unlikely.

              I'll see what I can find on Seward charters that early in the season.
