Sport fishing will be open for the next three weekends


The Alaska Department of Fish and Game opens the Ninilchik River and Deep Creek Conservation Area to sport fishing for just three coming weekends, after closing those and other surrounding waters to any sport fishing in order to protect the chinook salmon run.

The Ninilchik River and Deep Creek Conservation Areas will be open to sport fishing from shore for the periods of May 28-30, June 4-6 and June 11-13. The salt waters surrounding the Anchor River and Stariski Creek remain closed.

Anglers are allowed a two-fish limit for king salmon over 20 inches in the salt waters of Cook Inlet north of the latitude of Bluff Point.

Additionally, fishing for king salmon is closed within 1 mile of shore in the salt waters of Cook Inlet north of the latitude of Bluff Point as of 11:59 p.m. July 31.

This story has been updated to correct an error in the size of the king salmon. The limit is two fish over 20 inches, not 2 inches.
