We don't fish much. No time. I like to fish for kings at Ship Creek in Anchorage because its relatively uncrowded, convenient, and always something on the line. On the south side of the city there are a couple of small lakes stocked with trout that we take our grandchildren to. Think of being seven and landing a ten inch trout for your first fish! There are many other stocked lakes in the state, and of course the famous Kenai salmon fishery and Homer halibut charters. We have gone so far as to put symbols on our maps to show where access to water is available. That's about as much as we care to say about it. There are lots of other sources. The fish below, left, was taken from the mouth of Ship Creek and weighed about 20 pounds. Most people wouldn't keep a king this small because you only get to keep one a day. But this one was fresh (silver, not turning red) and made good eating. Emma's first fish came from Jewell Lake, south Anchorage. A fishing license is still the best bargain in Alaska.
