September Salmon Catching Opportunities
While our guest still catch some ocean-fresh chrome coho salmon primarily in early September, there is a much greater abundance of rosy-hued coho salmon migrating up Mat-Su Valley streams as daily temperatures start to cool. Bait fishing is still allowed on a portion of the Knik River drainages during September. September provides an opportunity to fish with low fishing pressure from other angler.
September 1 – 10
September 1 — 7 The most prime ocean-chrome coho salmon are usually available right at the start of September. Give us a call at 907-746-2199 if you would like to discuss a September salmon fishing trip.
September Alaska Fishing Reports 2023
September 1, 2023 — I had hoped to be posting daily fishing reports through all of August and into September — however with the Alaska Department of Fish & Game issuing emergency restrictions and/ or closures on all the major fisheries for wild coho salmon in the Mat-Su Valley I have not guided a salmon fishing trip since August 18.
September 2, 2023 — Eklutna Tailrace — I drove over to the tailrace this afternoon and caught a chrome bright coho salmon while casting with a #4 Vibrax Spinner. There were about 7 of os fishing and I only saw one other angler have any luck while I was fishing. 3 additional anglers had fish coho salmon they had caught before I arrived. The Knik River was very high and muddy, and the tailrace itself was backed up and quite high, but had decent clarity.
