Where can we go to see salmon?


During the summer months salmon swim upstream in many of the rivers in Alaska. In Anchorage, visitors can watch salmon the salmon viewing bridge in downtown Anchorage above Ship Creek or the viewing dock on the Potter Marsh boardwalk, that have structures to stand on and watch the fish. Also in Anchorage there is the Alaska Department of Fish and Game's William Jack Hernandez Sport Fish Hatchery at 941 N Reeve Blvd, where visitors are welcome 7 days a week.
