    depending on the time in july you are planning to go to Seward your best bet for shore fishing could be right by the harbor. the "hotspot" to snag salmon is the culverts. you can park your rv basically right by them.

    Default Regulations

    Guys! You had better check the regulations before you try snagging. In many areas of the state it is illegal and will get you a ticket pronto.

    It is also not a good idea to even suggest illegal activities as there are members from Fish and Game on the forums.

    Completely legal to snag in the saltwater in Seward, for all species of salmon. Just make sure you note the bag limits designated for each species.

    Are there culverts in the ocean next to RV parks down there where you can snag? Usually culverts are in driveways, ditches or empty into something.

    May be I misread it.

    Yes Dave, the culverts in question (there are 2 pipes side by side) terminate in Resurrection Bay, the silvers have to swim into em to access the lagoon. I see where your confusion was, but the culverts are in the salt and thus, legal.

    Default Thanks

    Thanks. Someone reported the post so I thought a warning about snagging was in order. I did not see anything else that was wrong.....

    Yes a lot of people snag in the ocean..... and some good spots for it too.

    Default Snagging in Seward

    This topic has been gone over a bunch of times in the past few years about Seward snagging. Salt water = ok just about everywhere.
    Fresh water = exception, is ok at the waterfall in Seward, at least in September I know.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    July seems early for catching silvers off the bank in Seward? Are you talking about pinks or do silvers acutally show up in good numbers at the end of the month?

    If they arrive that soon, I may have to change my plans for this summer.

    no, your right it is early to catch them in mid late july, but we were catching them at caines head and the army docks so if they are that close in chances are there are a few to be caught, also pinks are usually there by then and not all spawned out. sorry for the confusion, probably should have stated that it was on the saltwater side .

    Crackerjack or Profish-N-Sea hands down. However, they may well be booked for July already, it's peak season.
