    Default Freshwater regulations for coho on POW

    I will be river fishing for coho on POW next week. I have fished there before, but almost exclusively in saltwater. I know the saltwater regulations pretty well, but I am concerned about any differences in regulations for freshwater. I have tried to read all the relevant regulations, but thought it would be good to ask the local experts too. What are the gotchas?
    Thanks,

    Follow the link to the SE regulations. Fresh Water Coho from Cape Fairweather to Dixon Entrance is 6 fish over 16" daily, 12 in possession. You'll have to look at the POW to see if there are any special regs for the body of water you're fishing, but I don't see any for Coho anyway.

    Thanks for confirming the limits. Last time I fished POW I had somebody tell me the daily limit was 2 coho in some of the rivers, but I have never seen that in print. I have been a little concerned about things like max/min leader length, maximum hook size, number of hooks, etc, all of which I am used to seeing in the regulations for the other places I fish. The Alaska regs are so simple relative to the mess we have to deal with in CA I just worry that I am missing something.

    Thanks,
