Fish Report: Fishing remains better than last year

Posted: Tuesday, September 20, 2005

Here is the Alaska Department of Fish and Game's Juneau area fishing report for the week that ended Sunday:

Coho fishing remained strong with the catch rate at four rod-hours per fish. That compares to last year's rate for the week of six hours per fish. The five-year average is five hours. The best spot for coho fishing was north Shelter Island.

Halibut fishing held steady at four rod-hours per fish, compared to six hours for the same week last year and 15 hours for the five-year average. Point Retreat was the hot spot for halibut fishing.

The department's creel survey did not count any king salmon last week. Last year's average for king fishing at this point in September was 227 rod-hours, and the five-year average is 676 hours.
