There are a few other things that make Ship Creek unique to the area. First, other than a small run at Eagle River and the stocked fishery at the Eklutna Tailrace, this is the only location near Anchorage you can fish for King Salmon. Also, this is one of the few non-glacial salmon streams in the area. The water typically runs clear, except after rain storms or spring flooding.
The fishable section of the creek is just a short, half mile stretch, from the Knik Arm of the Cook Inlet to the demarcation cable just below the dam at the Chugach Power Plant.This short length makes the creek very easy to learn. Try to fish the creek an hour or two before or after the slack tide to catch the next wave of chrome salmon coming in from the salt water.
