Commercial and Sport Fishing are Important Industries in Alaska

Southeast Alaska Fishing Boat

Commercial fishing for salmon and herring is a huge industry in Southeast Alaska, which employs a significant number of our residents. While you’re out on the water sport fishing during your visit, you’re likely to see commercial boats out on the water fishing near you. These vessels are commonly independently owned and operated by locals who then sell their fish to processors, which is how they provide for their families.

Sport fishers from around the world come to POW Island during the summer to get their fill of fun and fishing on the ocean. Whether you want to come in April-May for the Steelhead, May-June for Chinook Salmon, July-September for Coho Salmon or Halibut, you’re sure to get a boatful of fish. Freshwater fishing is also extremely popular. August and September are the best time of year to get your limit of Coho, so bring your fly rod and visit one of the popular fishing destinations in Klawock or Whale Pass.

After a few days fishing, you’re going to have more than enough to keep your family and friends fed with fresh seafood for the rest of the year. There’s nothing more satisfying than pulling a package of salmon or halibut out of the freezer, and reminiscing about your Alaskan adventure!

Before you go out fishing, it’s important to ensure you have the correct licenses and know the regulations. Residents and non-residents have different regulations regarding what type and the number of fish you can keep. Additionally, there are times during the season when regulations are changed, so make sure you’re aware of the rules in place during your visit. For more information on sport fishing regulations, please visit the Alaska Department of Fish and Game website.
