Fishing in Anchorage Alaska

In the past, Alaska King Salmon fishing on the Deshka River has been outstanding. It is a little know fact how good the king salmon fishing can be on this semi remote river which is easily accessible from Anchorage.

Fishing the Anchorage Lakes.

Take the family rainbow fishing in Anchorages stocked lakes at Jewel, Delong and Campbell Point Lake where the fish average about 10 inches in length and 20 inches in fun. Small spinners, flies, the little cocktail shrimp, store bought salmon eggs or the smaller fresh cured roe will work. You might also wish to target the arctic char in Sand Lake and Campbell Point lake but if so, try fishing the deeper waters for your best success.
