We should see more days like this in 2011!

We should see more days like this in 2011!

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game just released a Chinook Abundance Index for Southeast Alaska of 1.69, the highest Chinook forecast since 2007. What exactly does that mean? It means there’s going to be plenty of king salmon around this summer for us to catch!

With this high forecast comes a higher possession limit for non-resident anglers of 5 Chinook for the year in Southeast Alaska. Non-resident anglers can retain two Chinook per day in the month of May until the possession limit is reached and one per day from June thru September.

This is great news and while we’ve had pretty darned good king salmon fishing the last couple of years, we’re excited to see the return of some “good-old-days” king salmon fishing to Craig and Southeast Alaska. Will someone catch a 70 plus pounder this year in Craig? That lucky angler could be you!
