Anchor River State Recreation Area  

Anchor River State Recreation Area

Anchor River State Recreation Area is one of Alaska's premier fishing destinations. The 213-acre recreation area can be reached from the Sterling Highway on the Kenai Peninsula, 16 miles north of Homer and 62 miles south of Soldotna. Anchor River is Alaska's only major steelhead stream accessible by road with steelhead runs occurring from late August to November. King salmon is the river's most popular fishery with the run beginning in late May and peaking in the second week in June. Other species include silver salmon that move into the river from the end of July until the beginning of September and pink salmon from mid-July to early August on even numbered years.
