Alaska State Fish and Game Bag Limits

Please note that State Fish and Game officials may, on occasion, place "catch and release," modified bag limits, or temporary closures on salmon to protect their annual return. Fishing seasons and bag limits have also been known to be increased. Rainbow trout are catch and release. We strongly support regulations designated to result in the sustainability of this outstanding resource.
