Mat-Su Valley

  • All Susitna drainages have been closed for king salmon sport fishing due to emergency orders

  • Willow Creek upstream of the Parks Highway is open for retention of trout in certain areas.
    Stocked lakes in the Mat-Su continue to be a great opportunity for family fun. Try Finger Lake or Seymore Lake

  • Kings are now being caught at Eklutna Tailrace


  • Ship Creek kings continue to be caught. Try drifting roe under a bobber and focusing on incoming and outgoing tides

  • Most lakes in Anchorage have been stocked. If you’d like to try fishing but don’t have the stuff, visit your local ADF&G office and ask about their “Rod Loaner Program”

  • Campbell Creek will be open to youth anglers only from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. for kings, Saturday and Sunday only


  • Prince William Sound is steady with Halibut and rockfish. Ling cod is closed until July 1
