Southeast Alaska chinook sport fishing seasons set

Here are the southeast Alaska sport king salmon fishing regulations that were released by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

These rules take effect from Monday, April 8 through Wednesday, April, 2014.

The bag and possession limit (resident and nonresident) is one king salmon 28 inches or greater in length.

A nonresident annual harvest limit and recording requirements apply as follows:

From January 1 through June 30, a nonresident’s harvest limit is three king salmon 28 inches or greater in length.

From July 1 through July 15, a nonresident’s harvest limit is two king salmon, 28 inches or greater in length, and any king salmon harvested by the nonresident from January 1 through June 30 will apply toward the two fish harvest limit.

From July 16 through December 31, a nonresident’s harvest limit is one king salmon 28 inches or greater in length, and any king salmon harvested by the nonresident from January 1 through July 15 will apply toward the one fish harvest limit.

Immediately upon landing and retaining a king salmon nonresidents must enter the species, date and location, in ink, on the back of their sport fishing license or harvest record.

From October 1, 2013 through March 31, 2014; resident sport anglers may use two rods while fishing for king salmon; a resident using two rods may only retain king salmon.
