(Juneau) – The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is reminding anglers that the 2020 sport fishing regulations for king salmon in Southeast Alaska and Yakutat remain unchanged except that the resident bag limit of two king salmon has expired and the bag limit for all anglers is one king salmon. The following regulations will be effective 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, January 1, 2020:
Under the Southeast Alaska King Salmon Management Plan regional king salmon sport fish bag and possession limits and any other management measures are based upon the Southeast Alaska Winter Troll CPUE. As mandated by the plan, king salmon regulations will be based on the previous Southeast Alaska Winter Troll CPUE until the current years Southeast Alaska Winter Troll CPUE is finalized. Since the 2020 Southeast Alaska Winter Troll CPUE will not be finalized until later in 2020, Southeast Alaska sport fish king salmon regulations will be set using the 2019 Southeast Alaska Winter Troll CPUE until the 2020 Southeast Alaska Winter Troll CPUE is available. Once the 2020 Southeast Alaska Winter Troll CPUE is finalized the department will announce regulatory changes mandated by the plan.
