From an ADFG News Release:

At their March 2007 statewide finfish meeting, the Alaska Board of Fisheries adopted the following new regulations on the sport, personal use, and subsistence proxy fishing program, which are expected to become effective in June 2007.
  • A person who is fishing proxy for a beneficiary must immediately record, in ink, on the Proxy Fishing Information Form, the date, location (body of water fished), species, approximate weight (in pounds), and number of any fish or shellfish taken by the proxy on behalf of the proxy recipient.
  • In addition, a proxy who takes fish or shellfish for a beneficiary shall, as soon as practicable, but not later than 30 days after taking the fish or shellfish, personally deliver to the beneficiary all edible parts of the fish or shellfish removed from the field on the behalf of the beneficiary.
The Proxy Fishing Information Form has been revised to reflect these new requirements. Anglers are advised that they must pick up the new form prior to proxy fishing. Those anglers who have already obtained a Proxy Fishing Information Form for 2007 will need to return the old version and obtain the new version prior to proxy fishing.

For more information, visit the proxy fishing web site at or contact your local ADF&G office.
