Prince of Wales Island
Archived Sport Fishing Report
August 11, 2014
Waters are currently high from rain runoff, but should drop as the week progresses. Neck Creek continues to have excellent numbers of coho salmon from the bridge down into Whale Passage. Coho, chum and pink salmon are present in other drainages such as the Thorne, Klawock, Staney, 108 and Logjam. Pink salmon are very abundant in the lower sections of these drainages. Rainbow and cutthroat trout fishing is currently good. The following lakes and associated stream drainages should offer good trout and Dolly Varden fishing; Control, Klawock, Luck, and Red Bay Lakes as well as the Thorne River drainage.
Marine angling around the Prince of Wales for king salmon has slowed down, but fish are still present. Halibut, rockfish and lingcod fishing is good. Coho and pink salmon are present in outside and inside waters and fishing is good to excellent.
The nonresident daily bag and possession limit for king salmon is one per day as of July 1. All anglers are responsible for knowing the current regulations for the area that they will be fishing. Regulation handbooks and copies of the most current regulatory changes are available on this website and at the Craig ADF&G office, (907) 826-2498.
