Marine angling in winter
Marine angling harvest information and best times to fish can be found at the Marine Harvest Rate link in the upper right of this report.
Winter Chinook angling can generally be fair in Yakutat Bay when weather allows. Halibut angling improves with spring temperatures in early spring.
Situk Steelhead Update
The roads were plowed over the weekend but the river is 70 - 80% iced over at nine mile and 100% iced over at the lower landing. River flows are very low and what remains of open water is partly filled with slush and floating ice. Nighttime temperatures will need to increase before the river will open up.
