Prince of Wales sport fishing report for Kingfisher Lodge in Craig Alaska for August 5th & 6th again is consistent salmon fishing with fish most everywhere you want to fish. Some places are slower than others but you should be able to catch a salmon wherever you drop a line with any bait or lure remotely resembling  a herring or needle fish. Yesterday leaving the dock off the lodge their was a school of 20 or more Silvers swimming on the surface although we tossed our bait at them they swam off so we felt that fishing off the dock wouldn’t be what the guys came to Alaska to do so we headed for more secluded fishing. King salmon fishing again is still good and even caught one with the halibut gear dropping to the bottom so seems you can’t help but catch a salmon this year.  We worked hard for our Halibut last couple days looking for the barn door but came up short landing 5 or 6 in the 75 to 130 pound range, just too long for the 45″ minimum and too short for the 68″ minimum on maximum size. We did land some that were the 35″ to 45″ range which are the best in my opinion anyhow. They look good and taste better and leave the big females to do their spawning!
