Craig Alaska sport fishing report for August 1st – 4th.
August 11, 2020
Prince of Wales sport fishing report for the first 3 days of August was outstanding king salmon fishing off shore with all three boats landing 18 king salmon to fill the new state of Alaska King salmon limit of 3 per day for a non resident. The weather was good to us or we never would have been able to run the distance off shore to accomplish this great catch as the kings have not been this plentiful near shore. Coho limits were also easily attained during this time as well as bottom fish as the pictures show. (note the halibut on the deck with the salmon shark bite).
This will probably be the best king salmon fishing of the season as far as numbers go and for those that were here and went through the efforts of Covid testing and wearing masks and all the problems getting here the effort was worth it. Thanks for reading my report and hope everyone coming to Alaska and the Craig area has an outstanding trip where ever you go fishing.
