Mat-Su Valley

  • On the Susitna River drainage, the limits have increased for coho salmon to four per day and eight in possession. Fishing is very good in most locations.

  • Coho fishing is good mainly throughout the Mat-Su Valley. Try Deshka, Little Susitna, Fish Creek, or the Eklutna Tailrace.

  • Want to catch some trout this weekend? Check out Little Beaver Lake in Big Lake or Loon Lake in Houston.


  • The Ship Creek coho salmon limits have increased to six per day and six in possession.

  • Salmon fishing at Bird Creek has been good. Try fishing roe under a bobber during the incoming tide and casting spinners during outgoing tide.

  • On Campbell Creek, the recent rain has pushed coho salmon into the creek. Fish will settle into deeper holes. Your chances will increase if you fish early in the morning or late at night.


  • The Upper Kenai and Russian Rivers are improving for sockeye salmon fishing. Kasilof River sockeye salmon fishing is good.

  • Try fishing at the mouth on Ninilchik, Deep, and Anchor River for coho salmon. They are most active at the break of day.

  • Lake fishing for trout is very good. Check out Johnson Lake is Kasilof or Sport Lake in Soldotna.
