    Default Silvers being caught out of Prince William Sound

    Thought I would give everyone a heads up that the Silvers are getting pretty thick in Prince William Sound. We have pulled our limit out for the last 4 days in a row in less than two hours. They are slowing showing up around Pigot, but go out further to get them.

    Two nights ago the kids were also playing in the creek down at the head of passage canal, catching the silvers with their hands. What a sight that was!

    Good news if they are really in. I would like to hear more from those successful fishing for them this last weekend. I fished Pigot for them for an hour or so on Friday, and did not get a single hit. I saw a couple of boat fishing when we went home on Saturday, and none were hooked up. I did see quite a few pinks jumping but no silvers.

    I am a bit skeptical after the post this spring from a forum member with a pic of silvers in front of the Seward dock sign and I ran out Pony where he said he had caught them. Later someone noticed that it was a picture from last summer due to the snow on the mountains...

    Are you sure they were silvers? Bet you they were pinks.

    Let me assure you, they are out there. You need to go at least to Knight to get numbers. Pigot is not producing yet.

    At this point it is probably safe to say they are not coming at all....Not sure what Northdan is trying to do with these false reports, but there are NO silvers in the sound to be had.........

    I think some are out there. Cordova is supposedly getting a good hit in their rivers now. Valdez reports are trickling in saying fishing is picking up. Not sure why Whittier is always hurting for fish the last few years....

    Depending on who you believe, you can either get them over by Cordova, or right at the head of passage canal where you can catch them with your hands.

    Seems to me that ADFG may have a problem with folks running around the creek catching them with their hands, or maybe not...who knows? In any case, I expect very, very slim pickings no matter where you go.

    If it's that bad I would go to Seward. We (five of us) hooked forty-five silvers in 6 hours.

    Well I know I can get shrimp and if I can find some salmon as well it would be a good thing. Heck I will take pinks if I have to.

    You all can try the creek thing, I will try pigot and beyond.

    I'd probably do the same thing. PWS has other options.

    Sweet, tell me you did not have to troll for nine hours to catch it.
