Freshwater and Saltwater Fishing
Alaska is an angler’s paradise. You could even come away with a world
record; the Alaska record for King salmon was set by a fish weighing
over 97 pounds. However, before you drop that line in the water, be sure
you know the state’s fishing regulations. A complete guide to freshwater
and saltwater fishing regulations is available from the Alaska
Department of Fish and Game, Division of Sport Fish. Special license stamps
are required for King salmon – these stamps are available at local
sporting goods stores.
