The Fish Creek Youth-Only Fishery will open on Saturday and Sunday, August 2-3, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day. The youth-only fishery allows anglers age 15 and younger to fish for all species, except king salmon, in waters between ADF&G markers at the mouth of Fish Creek and markers ¼-mile upstream of Knik-Goose Bay Road.
All other sport fishing regulations remain in effect for Fish Creek. The daily bag and possession limit is three salmon; only two per day may be coho (silver) salmon. The weekend-only fishery for anglers of all ages will commence on August 9.
Fish Creek is located at Mile 16 on Knik-Goose Bay Road.
Youth-Only sport fisheries are established by the Alaska State Legislature and implemented by the Alaska Board of Fisheries to provide special opportunity for young people to catch fish.
