We had 2 days in Anchorage after our cruise and heard about the fishing here at Ship Creek which is just a few blocks walking distance from our hotel. We headed over there and down the hill by Earthquake Park off Avenue C. We found a dozen people there fishing for Silver Salmon. You could see the big fish swimming around and while there we watched 2 get caught and another 2 dropped in 15-20 minutes. There is a shack there that rents all fishing gear including waders for around $30. They have a filet station and grill there to cook them if you'd like. The secret is you have to fish around high tide, hour before and hour after. The tides in Alaska are huge and creek empties at low tide and turns into a big muddy mess. But for some quick fun without having to travel somewhere, thats a great place to go. There is also a bar and restaurant right there sitting over the creek.
