Fishing Forecast - Petersburg, Alaska

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

End of Season Recap and Sportfishing Outlook

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. 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.

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 40 inches or over 80 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 the next fishing season.  Email me at: or phone at 907-772-9255 or 907-518-0543 cell.  Rates
