ADF&G Establishes Annual Limit for Anchor River Kings

Posted: April 19, 2013 at 7:32 am

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game issued an emergency order yesterday afternoon, that establishes a combined annual limit of two king salmon 20 inches or greater in length for fish harvested in the Anchor River, Deep Creek, Ninilchik River, and all marine waters south of the mouth of the Ninilchik River to Bluff Point

In addition, a person who takes and retains a king salmon 20 inches or greater in length from either Deep Creek, Anchor River, or Ninilchik River may not sport fish in any of those drainages for the rest of that day.

This emergency order is effective from 12:01 a.m., Wednesday, May 1, 2013, through 11:59 p.m., Sunday, June 30, 2013.

Any king salmon caught in these waters and recorded before Wednesday, May 1, 2013 on the harvest portion of an Alaska sport fishing license or harvest record card does not count against the two king salmon annual limit after 12:01 a.m., Wednesday, May 1, 2013, but does count against the Cook Inlet annual limit of five king salmon.
