Alaska fishing report for Kingfisher Lodge in Craig Alaska on Prince of Wales island June 14th thru the 17. This week we had very good weather for fishing as winds were light for the most part and seas were only 3 feet or so which made fishing the outer coast a pleasant experience and the ability to fish many other spots that in rough weather are out of the question. Overall we did very well considering the fishing or numbers of fish are down from last year but one has to remember that the limit now being 2 King salmon per day puts the stakes much higher for the guides as with a normal limit of one per day would make the year a average or better than average year for King salmon numbers. For the 3 days fishing Joel’s boat landed its limit of 36 King salmon where my boat fell short by 12 Kings we landing only 24 Kings. Not to say we didn’t have our opportunities. I am not sure of how the other charter boats were doing but what I gathered on the radio chatter it has been tougher for most captains to limit on King salmon. Halibut fishing has been pretty good and it seems that larger fish are starting to show up as the season progresses. Here are a few pictures of the last three days fishing and I will post more pictures on our Facebook page as well.
