Ship Creek

Ship Creek Review

The creek is dammed right downtown, with a footbridge across the dam and access from either bank. There's a waterfall; salmon running upstream from June through August; anglers; and, above it all, downtown Anchorage. Farther upstream (follow Whitney Road and turn left on Post Road) is the newly renamed William Jack Hernandez Sport Fish Hatchery—during the runs you can see salmon in the clear, shallow water as they try to leap up the falls.
