Fishing Charters & Excursions :: Anchorage Area

Most anglers fish freshwater for hatchery-stocked salmon; Chinook (or king), coho (or silver), and pink (or humpy). Most folks opt to fish right in the city along Ship Creek, which is just north of downtown Anchorage. The half-mile everyone fishes is just below the Chugach Power Plant dam and you're likely to have luck before slack tides. Kings run heavy in June, pinks begin in mid-July for a month and silver run in August.

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game also stocks 27 Anchorage area lakes and streams with one or more of the following -> rainbow trout, salmon, Arctic char, and Arctic grayling.
