In what appears to be a win for Wasilla and Big Lake area families and working people, ADF&G announced Thursday that it increased fishing time on the lower sections of Fish, Cottonwood, and Wasilla Creeks that are open to sport fishing for salmon. Past regulations allowed fishing at this weekend only fishery from 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. The increase extends fishing time to 5 a.m. – 10 p.m.

ADF&G also repealed the regulation closing Wasilla Creek to all fishing within 300 yards of Palmer-Fishhook Road. While still closed to salmon fishing, the area will be open to rainbow trout and grayling anglers beginning June 15.
