Alaska salmon fishing report for Kingfisher Lodge, Craig Alaska July 2nd 2012

July 3rd, 2012 by

Prince of Wales sportfishing report and S.E. Alaska fishing report for Craig Alaska on Prince of Wales island for July 2nd 2012 was again a great day to be an angler as ocean conditions remained calm with very good King salmon and Halibut fishing as well as bottom fishing. Most charter boats unded up outside of Noyes Island as the schools of King salmon were in good numbers there and most if not all boats limiting on their King salmon. Silver salmon were less abundant landing only a handful in our boats. The King salmon averaged about 20 pounds with our largest at 29 pounds. Halibut fishing was good as we searched for larger grade of halibut we ended up landing and releasing one about 110 pounds and our best keeper size was in at the regulation 45″. We also landed a nice ling cod at the regulation limit as well of 45″ and it weighed in at 35 pounds. Trollers were still working the 50 fathom edge for the two days so far into the opener so my guess is they are doing at least well enough to stay put.
