Kasilof River King Salmon Fishing
February 14, 2022

The 2022 Kasilof River early-run king salmon sport fishery, beginning when the ice goes out until June 30, will be limited to the harvest of hatchery produced fish only and anglers may only use one single hook or single-hook artificial lure, baited or unbaited. The bag limit is two hatchery fish per day and in possession. All natural king salmon must be released immediately.

The late-run king salmon fishery, July 1 through July 31, allows for harvest of hatchery produced king salmon only and prohibits the retention of natural king salmon from its mouth upstream to the Sterling Highway Bridge. In addition, only one unbaited, single-hook, artificial lure may be used when sport fishing in these waters. The bag limit during the second run is one per day and one in possession.

Anglers are urged to use caution when releasing a king salmon so as not to hurt the fish.
