Petersbury Alasak Fishing Forecast News and Outlook

2013 End of Season Recap and 2014 SPORT FISHING OUTLOOK

Fishing was generally very good this past season and the weather could not have been better. 2013 had the best summer anyone can remember. Lots of sun and calm water made for some great days fishing.

KING SALMON: King fishing was slightly better this year. It seems like we are starting to recover some from the last few years of slow fishing. The projections for both the Blind Slough return and the Stikine return are up slightly for 2014. Blind Slough did have a little better return of adults this year over the previous few seasons, as predicted, and good numbers of jacks as well. Almost 10 times as many Blind Slough fish are showing up in the winter commercial troll fishery as last year, indicating things are getting better for king returns.

HALIBUT: Fishing was consistently good all season. I really believe we have the best halibut fishing in the state in both quantity and quality. We will again be fishing under a “reverse slot limit” very similar to last years. This year’s regulation is 1 fish per day under 44 inches or over 76 inches. No annual limit. We tried targeting rockfish a bit more this past year to add a little variety and people seemed to enjoy that. I’m sure we will be doing more in the future.

SILVER SALMON: Fishing for Silvers was very good this past year. We expect that to continue again for this upcoming season. Silvers provided lots of action from mid- July to mid- September.

I am taking reservations now for 2014 fishing season. Rates will be same at $300.00 pppd. The same 3 person minimum will apply. Email at stanmalcom@gmail.com or phone at 907-772-9255 or 907-518-0543 cell.
