Ketchikan Creek opens for fishing Wednesday

Starting Wednesday, Ketchikan Creek will be open to sport fishing for all species, including king salmon. That fishery remains open through the end of the year, with certain restrictions.

The daily bag limit for kings caught in Ketchikan Creek is four fish of any size. The limit for all other salmon species is two daily of any combination, and they must be at least 16 inches long.

The gear also is restricted to single-hook, unbaited, artificial lures.

Because the Deer Mountain hatchery has closed, it will not be taking king or coho salmon for eggs this year. That means there will be more of those fish available for anglers.
