Sport Fish Harvest Rates
Prince of Wales

The average harvest rate from the most recent 5-years is an accurate surrogate for the current year's harvest rate, and is an important tool used by anglers for trip planning. Although harvest rates can vary year to year (especially early and late in the season for a given species), on average these harvest rates are accurate indicators of the best time to be on the water. Harvest rates presented here are for information purposes only and do NOT include current year information.
