Fishing near the mouth of Deep CreekMention the phrase 'Deep Creek' and most Kenai Peninsula anglers conjure up dreams of big Alaskan halibut. But to small stream anglers, 'Deep Creek' has a whole other meaning. Located just to the south of the town of Ninilchik, Alaska, Deep Creek is perhaps the most popular of the three southern streams of the Kenai Peninsula.

With two State of Alaska Recreation area accesses, the lower end of this river is quite accessible to bank anglers.

The creek's mouth (although named a 'creek', Deep Creek actually is larger than the Ninilchik River), is a popular launch site for the Deep Creek Halibut fleet as well as private boats wishing to fish for halibut or partake in the offshore king fishery.

Supporting a hatchery-enhanced natural run of king salmon, the river also offers a shot at pink and silver salmon later in the summer months. Deep Creek also provides a fine Dolly Varden fishery for both resident and anadromous varieties, although the sea-run is more prevalent.

Eggs, spoons, and spinners all are effective on each of the salmon species, as well as the dollies.

As with the Ninilchik River, Deep Creek is open for king salmon fishing on Memorial Day weekend and the following two weekends (remember, weekends are: Saturday, Sunday, and Monday).

After the king season closure, Deep Creek re-opens for Dollies on the first of July ... later in July pinks, and then silvers return. Deep Creek also hosts a small run of native steelhead, sometimes surprising anglers later in the year.

The floods of fall 2002 have changed the river course considerably so anglers that haven't visited the river in some time should plan on finding lots of new water!
