Fish the Famous Anchor River

The Anchor River is a famous fishing stream for salmon, steelhead, dolly varden and rainbows.

To reach the river, turn at Mile 157 at the visitor center, and cross over the bridge.

On your right is a series of public campgrounds and parking areas. On your left is a fishing store where you can buy gear and get advice. At the end of this road is a beach.

The fishing rules here are very complicated, so be sure to get the regulations when you buy your license.

Where is Anchor Point?

Anchor Point is located 210 miles from Anchorage and 22 miles north of Homer.

It's also the westernmost highway point in America.

The Anchor River, which runs through the town, offers fine fishing for king salmon as well as for many other kinds of fish.

Fishing at Anchor Point

Once you get to Anchor Point, you'll want to stay awhile and catch some fish. This is as far west as you'll get on the road system, and the salmon are biting!
