Our Team Learns How To Fish Ship Creek With Paul
Ship creek is one of Alaska's most unique fishing destinations.
Right smack in the middle of Anchorage downtown, you can fish for Kings and Silvers (Salmon) from the mouth of the creek upstream to a cable near the Chugach Electric Dam.
Stay Safe and do not get too far out into the MUD. Your Waders will get stuck! We had a customer have to take her Chest Waders off, leave them stuck in the mud and walk back to the shore in bare feet!
OLD ALASKAN HINT: Get there 2 hours before high tide comes in, as the fish are highly sensitive to the tides. The tides for June, July and August are below. Look for High Tide times and get there 2 hours before high tide!
A heavy spinning rod with a 20+ pound test is recommended. Popular lures include Spin-n-Glos, Pixees, Vibrax Spinners, Coho Flies and Streamers. Suspending Salmon Roe under a bobber is also popular.
