    Default Silvers in Whittier Boat Harbor

    Probably still too early, but wondered whether there were any opportunities for bankies to catch silvers in Whittier.

    On average, when does the shore fishery peak in that area? Thanks.

    Default whittier silvers

    From my experience the last two years they peak around the end of september thru the first week of october.

    Default Whittier silvers

    That fishery is a wonderfully late one. When everything else is done in Southcentral, Whittier starts to happen. I start fishing there the second week of September. To check on the arrival of the silvers, give the harbormaster a call and ask him if they're in the harbor yet.

    Default No Silvers, bright pinks

    My family was there today-one bright pink from shore was caught. The pinks will start coming in for the next couple weeks then Silvers will heat up around mid September.

    Which end of the pass were you at? I was at the passage canal side. Caught Hooked two kings there and landed one.

    It was the passage cannal side also. I don't really know where to fish for salmon in PWS, so i just stopped there. We knew the right depth to begin, and we were the only boat catching anything in that area. I saw a few nets fly, but not nearly as often as we were. Maybe we were just lucky. After the 3rd or 4th fish, we had silvers following the hooked fish to the surface and up to the boat.
