The Fishing Report: July 18, 2019

Anchorage (KTUU) - Mat-Su Valley:
-Deshka River is seeing a good run of Pink Salmon right now, along with some early Cohos.
-For Sockeye Salmon Cottonwood Creek is currently a great option!
-Try leach patterns and deep lake holes for your best chance at rainbows trout in Lucile, Seymour, and Walby lakes!
-There is no bag or possession limit for Northern Pike. Try Anderson, King or Memory lakes. If you catch a pike where it wasn’t seen before report it to 1-877-INVASIVE.

-There has been some die off of stickleback and blackfish at Mirror Lake. The warm water is suspected to be the cause.
-Ship Creek is starting to slow down for Kings, but Coho is picking up. Retention of kings is no longer allowed.
-Sections of Campbell Creek are now open to Coho salmon, Dolly Varden, Char, and trout.
-If you are targeting grayling in Symphony Lake morning and evening dry flies will be a good option with this heat, along with targeting deep holes.

-Salmon are hot across the Kenai!
-Kachemak Bay is having success with Coho and Pink salmon around Point Pogibshi.
-On the North Gulf Coast, Coho salmon are in Pony Cover and further out.
