The Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced that the sport fishing bag and possession limits for king salmon in Southeast Alaska and Yakutat will remain in effect through spring 2007. These regulations are:

  • Alaska residents: bag and possession limit of three king salmon 28 inches or greater in length; no annual limit.
  • Nonresidents: bag and possession limit of one king salmon 28 inches or greater in length; annual limit of four king salmon 28 inches or greater in length.
  • Sport anglers may use two rods from January through March, when fishing for king salmon.

The aforementioned apply in all marine waters of Southeast Alaska unless otherwise announced.

These regulations are directives from the Southeast King Salmon Management Plan, and based on the 2006 preseason abundance index determined by the Pacific Salmon Commission’s Chinook Technical Committee. Under the plan, bag and possession limits and other measures for the coming year are based on the prior year’s abundance index, until the following year’s index is formalized. The 2007 abundance index is expected by May 1, 2007. At that time, management measures for the remainder of 2007 will be announced.
