Prince of Wales sportfishing report for August 4th in Craig Alaska at Kingfisher Charters & Lodge. Leaving the dock today with 10 fishermen in two boats the Trinity guided by Captain Joel Steenstra left for Diamond Pt. and arriving landed a nice king salmon. The Trinity continued on to the Tree hole and continued to land fish both king and silver in good numbers limiting on both species as well as halibut. The Jeanette Elaine went on to the Tree hole as well landing 2 king salmon and the limit of silver salmon as well. Catching appears to be slower but persistant fishing has been paying off with limits.
Craig fishing report at Kingfisher lodge is that fishing has remained very good in almost all areas fished. Boats are spread out if weather is permitting and King salmon, silver salmon and legal sized halibut, ling cod, red snapper are in abundance. Limits for coho salmon are being caught at very good time ratio’s as well as king salmon, although the king salmon limits might not all be met. Today a group of 12 on 2 boats had their silver limits by 10 am or so which is 72 fish as well as 5 king salmon. Nebraska folks are very happy but don’t like the roll the ocean had to offer.
