From an ADFG News Release:
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced today that effective at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, August 25, the closure of salt water near the mouth of Pullen Creek has been rescinded and Pullen Creek in Skagway will be open to sport fishing for king salmon. In Pullen Creek, the bag and possession limit is ten king salmon of any size, bait is allowed, and the nonresident annual limit for king salmon does not apply to king salmon caught in Pullen Creek. This regulation will remain in effect through September 14, 2007.
This additional opportunity is being provided to allow harvest of hatchery-produced king salmon that have returned to Pullen Creek in numbers exceeding broodstock needs.
Anglers are reminded that snagging is prohibited in fresh water. Fish that are hooked anywhere other than in the mouth must be released immediately.
In addition, the closure of salt water near the mouth of Pullen Creek has been rescinded effective at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, August 25. All salt water in Taiya Inlet is open to sport fishing, subject to Southeast Alaska regional bag, possession, and annual limits.
