Silvers are still spotty at Ship Creek, where there are some pinks and chums to catch.

Some silvers are being caught at Campbell Creek in the sections open for fishing.

Jewell Lake was stocked this week with rainbow trout and they are biting now.


All the rivers and streams have high water and the fishing is marginal because of that.

There are some silvers, chums and pinks in those streams that should recede somewhat this weekend.

Area lakes are good.

The Little Susitna is doing pretty good for silvers.


The Kenai River is high and trout fishing is fair to good, salmon fishing is getting better.

Quartz Creek is starting to slow down for rainbows and dollies.

The Russian River is good for trout. Use beads and flesh. For salmon it’s slow to fair.

The area lakes are always worth a try.


Lots of large halibut are being caught.

Silvers are still elusive, although there are reports of a bunch of them behind the spit.

Rockfishing is very good and so is fishing for kings at the end of the spit and in the bay.


Reports of difficult fishing for silvers.

Halibut fishing is great.


Very few silvers, pinks and chums have shown up this year.

The halibut fishing is good and so is the fishing for rockfish.

As always, remember to check the regulations before you drop your line in the water. Regulation can change at any time.
