Fishing in Campbell Creek in Anchorage, AK

Campbell Creek is a great sport fishery that runs through the middle of the Anchorage area. The area is designated a “green belt”, and offers an opportunity to view wildlife right in the middle of town. Silver Salmon, King Salmon, Dolly Varden and Rainbow Trout can all be caught on the river, although regulations on Campbell Creek vary by area, with some areas being catch and release only, and other areas closed to all fishing.

The river runs through many residential and business areas, while many people do not mind fishermen, a few bad apples leaving trash and causing problems on the creek has lead to some private land owners closing access to the creek from their lands. Look for signs and respect property rights in the area. If everyone keeps this area clean, and uses common sense, we can look forward to this area remaining pro-fishing for years to come.

Silver Salmon fishing in Campbell Creek, Anchorage:

Silver Salmon move into the creek starting in mid-late July, and the peak of the run occurs in August. A sport fishery for hatchery silver salmon in Campbell Creek was opened in 1993.
