Area Sport Fishing Reports
Prince of Wales Island

May 22, 2015

Saltwater Fishing
King salmon are available in inside and outside marine waters around Prince of Wales with good catches reported by some anglers. Halibut, lingcod and rockfish fishing is currently good.

Freshwater Fishing
Steelhead fishing is poor as most fish have spawned and water conditions are very low. It is still early for salmon to be present in freshwaters. 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.

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
