The Fishing Report: May 30, 2019

Mat-Su Valley:


· Why not try floating Willow Creek for Rainbows this weekend? You can try leech patterns and wooly buggers between the highway and the mouth.

· Recently-stocked lakes in the Mat-Su include Rainbows in Memory and Weiner Lake, Grayling in Florence and Lorraine Lake, and Arctic Char in Seventeenmile Lake.

· Downstream of the main fishery at Eklutna Tailrace a few kings are being caught. You can use multiple hooks and bait.


· Arctic grayling have been recently stocked in Alder Pond, Sand Lake, and Beach Lake; and Rainbows Trout are in Tangle Pond.

· Salmon fishing is possible on Ship Creek. It's still a little slow, but spinners and bait are great for catching kings in this creek.

Kenai Peninsula

· Shrimp season is open in Prince William Sound, but double check new Emergency Orders on shrimp pots allowed. You will want to stick to a depth of 300-400’.

· Anglers going farther out in Resurrection Bay are having good results with King fishing and Sockeye should be in larger numbers there soon.

· It's halibut time 20-30 miles offshore of Homer Harbor. Try herring on a circle hook or jigs.
