The Fishing Report: Sept. 12, 2019

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Mat-Su Valley:
• There is a last chance for coho in Talkeetna River, but not for long.
• Rainbows were recently stocked in Long Lake and Kepler/Bradley Lake and char have been stocked in Matanuska Lake and Finger Lake.
• Weekend-only fisheries to remember are Wasilla Creek and Cottonwood Creeks, but coho are starting to slow.
• Emergency Orders have Fish Creek open seven days a week between 5 a.m. to 10 p.m, but remember, only two coho may be retained. Check for order for bag details.

• Cooler weather has been a relief for trout fishing. Mirror Lake, DeLong Lake, Lake Otis, and Waldon Lake were all stocked with rainbows this past week.
• Coho in Ship Creek are slowing, but not gone. Results are being seen when fish move in on high tide or some are finding fish when tide is dropping.
• Campbell Creek is also seeing coho pick up slightly due to rain, but you might also try small spinner for rainbows this weekend!

• It just about time to start wrapping up coho fishing in Anchor River and Ninilchik River, but for some last coho try mornings with size 3 or 4 spinners.
• In streams around Seward try fly fishing for rainbow or Dolly Varden. This time of year its best to use egg patterns.
• Halibut fishing is slowing in Prince William Sound. Using bigger bait in outside waters will give you a better chance at some last catches.
• Scout Lake, just off the Sterling Highway, was stocked with grayling last week.
