    Default PWS commercial fishing zones

    Anyone have a link to a map that shows the commercial salmon fishing zones in PWS?

    Taking a trip sun-tues and looking to see which openers to dodge around.

    I have the descriptions from the ADFG link to the regulations, but a visual would be nice.

    I don't have anything on paper but call me if i can be any help. For the most part if you stay offshore lets say a good mile, slow down when you see gillnetters and just look for corklines you should be safe. From Nellie Juan light all the way to Granite point thats the main bay district and the gillnetters are allowed to fish from the beach out to 1 mile. Around Ester they could be anywhere from the ester side all the way over to culross, up through ester pass & up around ester rock all the way to granite bay depending on how much of that area F&G opens to them.
    Don't just look for boats and buoys because the nets can be in a half moon shape or in big S's, you have to slow down and look for the corklines. The thing that always scared me the most when i saw rec boats heading my way was that they almost never slowed down to look and unless i got between them and my net 99% for them ran over the nets.
    Anyway call me if i can help ya.
