Sport fishing

The Alaska department of Fish and Game announced the 2007 sport fishing bag and possession limits for king salmon in the Southeast Alaska and Yakutat will remain in effect through the spring of 2008.

The regulations are : Alaska residents — bag and possession limit of three king salmon 28 inches in length or greater, no annual limit; non-residents — bag and possession limit of one king salmon 28 inches in length or greater, annual limit of four king salmon 28 inches in length or greater; anglers may use two rods from January through March, when fishing for king salmon.

These regulations apply in all marine waters of southeast Alaska unless otherwise announced.

Under the Southeast King Salmon Management Plan, bag and possession limits and other measures for the coming year are based on the prior year’s abundance index. The 2008 abundance index is expected by May 1, 2008. At that time, management measure for the remainder of 2008 will be announced.
