June 21st Prince of Wales Sportfishing report for Kingfisher Lodge in Craig Alaska.
Today the weather was calm with overcast skies when we headed out for our King salmon hoping to land another derby fish we went to the same fishing spot but caught no salmon there so moved off shore and soon found some King salmon. Although the fish were plentiful the size was small so we had to let some undersized Kings go until we finally landed our limit of legal size fish with the largest about 20 pounds.Halibut fishing for us was pretty good landing some nice fish with the largest at 43 pounds.
King salmon fishing in the Craig area remained steady as most boats are limiting on their King salmon although depending on where you are you may have to work for your fish or if you are looking for that bigger fish. It seems there are a fair number of schooling fish in the smaller or just legal size limit of 28 inches to 33 inches or so.
Halibut fishing in the Craig area has been picking up slowly as the salmon migration speeds up and water temperatures rise they seem to be in larger numbers although most guides are struggling to land respectable catches nearing the 45 in range.
