From an ADFG News Release:

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced on April 11 the 2007 sport fishing bag and possession limits for king salmon in Southeast Alaska and Yakutat which will become effective 12:01 A.M. May 1, 2007. The Regulations are:
  • The use of two rods per angler is allowed from October 2007 through March 2008.
  • Alaska residents: bag and possession limit of three king salmon 28 inches or greater in length; no annual limit.
  • Nonresidents: bag and possession limit of two king salmon 28 inches or greater in length in May and one king salmon 28 inches or greater in length for the remainder of the year; an annual limit of four king salmon 28 inches or greater in length for the entire year.
These regulations apply in all marine waters of Southeast Alaska unless otherwise announced. The nonresident annual limit of four king salmon also applies in all freshwaters between Cape Suckling and Cape Fairweather.

The 2007 harvest allocation for the sport fishery is based on a preseason abundance index of 1.60 as determined by the Pacific Salmon Commisssion’s Chinook Technical Committee. This index equates to a 60,900 king salmon allocation to the sport fishery. The Southeast Alaska king salmon management plan prescribes that the regulations listed above be implemented when the king salmon abundance index is between 1.51 and 1.75.
