ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska Department of Fish and Game officials say a youth-only fishery will be held this weekend north of Anchorage.

A stretch of an area known as the Eklutna Tailrace will be open for the roadside fishery from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Participants must be 15 years old or younger.

The section for the youth fishery is between the confluence of the Knik River and the pedestrian bridge upstream. The rest of the area will be open to people of all ages.

Officials say the limit for coho salmon less than 16 inches is 10 per day. The limit for larger silver salmon is three.

Officials say all other sport-fishing regulations still apply for the Eklutna Tailrace, which is located at about milepost 3.5 of the Old Glenn Highway.
