Quick fishing near Anchorage

I will be in Anchorage next week and have a fishing trip planned on the Deshka river; however, it looks like it is only catch and release right now on most of the rivers so I can’t keep the fish. If I have a free half day on my trip is there anywhere near Anchorage that I can catch salmon (don’t care if it isn’t Kings) and keep them? If I fish at Ship Creek or the Anchorage Lakes am I able to keep the fish? Are there any guide services for either of those areas?

Ship creek or eklutna tailrace are your only options.
