The Fish Creek Youth-Only Fishery will open on Saturday and Sunday, August 6-7, 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 Alaska Department of Fish and Game 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 13.
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.
