King salmon fishing in marine waters is good, with fish available in inside and outside waters. Some coho salmon are present as well. Halibut, lingcod and rockfish are available and fishing is good.

Trout and Dolly Varden fishing is good as they feed on insects, salmon fry and outmigrating salmon smolt. The following drainages can have good trout and Dolly Varden fishing; Control, Klawock, Luck, and Red lakes as well as the Thorne River drainage.  Sockeye salmon are entering freshwater drainages. The following drainages have sockeye salmon returns; Thorne, Sarkar and Karta rivers, Hatchery, Red, Ratz and Eagle creeks. There have been no reports of summer run coho in Neck Creek, but fish should start showing soon.
