  • Seward silvers in September?

    Got a combo charter booked for sep 7. What are the chances of still gettin into a good silver bite? Seems late but hopefully someone can give me some hope? Thanks!

    If you are talking about the Seward area. I think all the rough weather in the gulf the two weeks of the derby has got them all scattered and have yet to regroup as of this past weekend. Anything can happen, I plan to make another trip maybe even later than the 7th.

      We find our best fishing of the season is in early to mid September.

      The head of the bay, and along both shorelines is very productive. In the afternoon the water is calmest on the east shoreline so thats where we head.

      The fish are generally shallower than earlier in the season, we fish downriggers as shallow as 30'.

        Thanks for the replies, and encouraging posts! We are going out with Rogue charters. Anyone have experience with them?

          I was fishing off of Granite Island the other day, between bad weather days, and there were plenty of boats and large silvers.

            Sorry if this is a repeat post, my 7 month old starting hitting the keyboard while I was typing and the ole' mac had a melt down...

            Anyway, its encouraging to see the silver bite stays on into September. Is it worth heading out to Day Harbor or Pony or stay in the bay? I have been doing well fishing to the East out of the bay. Weather looks decent for mid week this week so I'll be heading down in a day or so

              It's been about ten days since I was down last. We caught them as far out as Granit Island. I don't you'll need to go far but would expect you could find them most anywhere you go now.

                      Hey parents, don't forget about the Seward area "Youth-Only" fishery September 5-7th. Page 58 bottom right of the SC regulation book. There is already a CRAP load of silvers in the lagoon outfall stream.

                        Even more incentive to bring the kids down this weekend!

                        YOUTH-ONLY FISHING DAYS AT THE SEWARD LAGOON THIS WEEKEND, SEPTEMBER 5-7
                        The Seward Lagoon and lagoon outfall stream will be open to coho (silver) salmon fishing for youth anglers, from 12:01 a.m. Friday, September 5 through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, September 7. This youth-only fishery is open only to anglers 15 years or younger. For this weekend, the harvest limit has been increased to 6 fish per day and in possession. Youth fisheries were established by the Alaska State Legislature and implemented by the Alaska Board of Fisheries to provide additional opportunity for young people to go fishing.

                        Over 200,000 coho salmon smolt were stocked in the Seward Lagoon in 2013. Healthy smolt from the William Jack Hernandez Sport Fish Hatchery and better than anticipated marine survival are resulting in strong returns to the beaches of Seward and the Seward Lagoon. The lagoon and stream leading to the lagoon are open by regulation this weekend only to youth anglers age 15 and younger, and are closed to all fishing the remainder of the year.

                        An evaluation of fishing conditions prior to this youth-only fishery estimated that there were over 1,000 coho salmon in the stream leading into the Seward Lagoon, with many additional fish already in the lagoon. Therefore, young anglers should have a good chance catching coho salmon.

                        For this weekend, in response to the large number of surplus hatchery coho salmon, the harvest limit is 6 fish per day and in possession. A single-hook with bait or a single-hook artificial lure with or without bait may be used. Multiple or treble hooks are not allowed in the Seward Lagoon or outfall stream. Snagging is also not allowed in the lagoon or outfall stream and all snagged fish need to be released immediately.

                        The waters of the Seward Lagoon and outfall stream remain closed to all fishing the remainder of the year and closed to fishing for other species during this youth-only fishery. For current regulations, consult page 58 of the Southcentral Alaska regulations book.
                        Good luck!

                          We will be headed that way tomorrow afternoon, 9-year old in tow. Thanks for posting the youth fishery. He should get a kick out of that. Will report results as I can.

                            would you happen to know if you can assist the kids in holding the rod while they reel? i would like my 5 yr old take a whack at hooking a silver in the lagoon tomorrow.

                              This is about getting the kids involved and successfully catching fish. I bet a 5 yr old will need some help reeling in a fish so I say go for it.
