This summer I had friend visiting. They have dual citizenship in Canada and Switzerland. They were in the yukon on the way up here. They had some friends near Haines with a boat and went fishing. He told me he got fishing licenses for the family for $15 each. I was confused. He wanted to possibly try for a black bear and thought he would get a bear tag cheap too. He checked with fish and game here in anchorage and he told them about the fishing licenses down there and that he wanted to check on a black bear. They could not believe what they were hearing and they had to call down to believe it he said.
I was talking to another canadian who is living in anchorage now waiting for her papers to clear Immigration. She mentioned she fished some river in Haines. So I asked if she got a cheap license and she said yes. The guy from this fall said all the canadian residents in the yukon area keep their boats in the Haines harbor and they get the licenses as a regular resident. It still makes no sense to me. Not sure on exact cost of a non resident alien but seems like it was around $100 for a season.
I will bite my tongue for now. Some on here will know why. Just want to know what you all think.
