Pasagshak River Coho Salmon Bag Limit Increased

(Kodiak) – The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) is increasing the bag and possession limit for coho (silver) salmon 20 inches or greater in the Pasagshak River from one to two fish. These provisions are effective 12:01 a.m. Saturday, September 22 through December 31, 2018. 

“On September 19-20, the department observed a minimum of 6,200 coho salmon in Lake Rose Tead based on drone and aerial surveys.” stated Area Management Biologist Tyler Polum. “Though the escapement goal is typically assessed post season during spawning in November, the department expects to achieve the goal even with increased opportunity for harvest. Therefore, we are able to increase the bag and possession limit to two fish to allow additional sportfishing and harvest opportunity.”
