King Salmon Resident Limit Increased to FIVE

(Released: July 30, 2020 - Expires: September 30, 2020)

Updated 2020 Southeast Alaska Regional King Salmon Sport Fishing Regulations 

The Department of Fish and Game announces an increased opportunity to harvest king salmon. Due to continued reduced nonresident harvest in the sport fishery related to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the sport harvest of king salmon will continue to be significantly below the Southeast Alaska sport fishery king salmon allocation unless harvest opportunity is increased. This action further liberalizes king salmon daily bag limits and the nonresident annual limit while keeping the marine sport fishery within its allocation.

The following regionwide regulations are effective 12:01 a.m. Friday, July 31 through 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, September 30, 2020 as follows:

Alaska Resident

  • The resident bag and possession limit is five king salmon, 28 inches or greater in length, no annual limit.


  • The nonresident bag and possession limit is three king salmon, 28 inches or greater in length;
  • The nonresident annual limit is nine king salmon, 28 inches or greater in length;
  • Immediately upon landing and retaining a king salmon a nonresident must enter the species, date, and location, on their sport fishing license or on a nontransferable harvest record.

The king salmon nonretention periods in the Ketchikan area are still in effect to protect wild Alaska king salmon stocks. If you intend to fish in this area, please review the specific advisory announcement for these locations.
