If you find yourself taking an Alaskan cruise, this is one of the places you will be spending the night at. I recommend to take full advantage of the fishing opportunities there
Sitka Fishing Report April 25 - May 02, 2005
Many anglers in the Sitka area are outside early enjoying the spring weather. Anglers last week averaged 11 hours per king salmon; this is 4 hours more than the 5-year average for the second week in May. King salmon were caught just south of town in Sitka Sound as well as in Salisbury Sound, Biorka Island area, and along the outer coast of Kruzof Island. This will pick up qucikly within the next couple of weeks, and the average time will drop to around 2 hours per fish
Alaska residents: bag and possession limit of two king salmon 28 inches or greater in length; no annual limit.
Nonresidents: bag and possession limit of one king salmon 28 inches or greater in length; annual limit of three fish. <!--graemlin::D-->
