Starting June 1st, Ketchikan Creek will be open to sport fishing for all species, including king salmon.
According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, fishing from the creek will remain open through the end of the year.
The bag and possession limit for king salmon from Ketchikan Creek is two kings of any size. King salmon harvested in Ketchikan Creek do not count toward the non-resident annual limit.
Fish and Game announced that the Deer Mountain Hatchery will not be collecting brood stock from Ketchikan Creek this year. Therefore, there will be excess king salmon in the creek available for harvest.
The bag and possession limit for salmon other than kings is two per day in combination, and two in possession. Salmon other than kings must be 16 inches or greater in length.
Fishing gear permitted in Ketchikan Creek is limited to one unbaited, single-hook artificial lure.
