Dreaming about an Alaskan Fishing Adventure?

Fishing in Alaska comes in multiple flavors-literally! Tens of thousands of people from all parts of the world harvest and feast on salmon, halibut, crab, trout, and other varieties of finfish and shellfish under subsistence, personal use, and Sport Fishing regulations. Many of anglers try their skills in both wilderness and urban settings. Guides, lodges and charter operators provide residents and visitors with memorable fishing experiences and contribute significantly to our tourism industry and economy. Subsistence and personal use fishing support a traditional way of life for many Alaskans. Subsistence fishing for those that qualify, provides wild harvests worth hundreds of pounds and thousands of dollars in replacement value at the supermarket. And with the price of seafood rising that saves a local guy like me a lot of "supermarket" money.

Alaska’s commercial fisheries are the most productive and valuable in the nation, with a wholesale value of over $3 billion. Recent studies put the combined economic impact of commercial and sport fishing at $7.4 billion and 89,915 full-time-equivalent jobs.

All of Alaska’s fisheries are managed by a science-based system that is widely regarded as among the best in the world, ensuring these living resources remain available for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations.

Alaska offers four types of fishing. Sport fishing is open to anyone in virtually everyone, while commercial, subsistence, and personal use fishing are limited to certain areas, certain types of gear, or just to Alaska residents.

Once you have determined the kind of fishing you would like to do,  review the regulations for the specific area and species you want to catch. (Click on my Fish and Game link on this page for specific regulations) Seasons, bag limits, methods and means, permitting, and reporting requirements vary widely across the state and can be found by clicking on the link.
