Obtain a current copy of the Sport Fishing Regulations Summary for Southcentral Alaska and keep it handy while fishing. The key to using this booklet is to first locate where you want to fish and then follow the regulations that apply to each specific area.
You must first purchase a valid sport fishing license if you are age 16 or older. These are available at local sporting foods and grocery stores - see Alaska Fishing Licenses & Stamps.
If you have detailed questions on fishing regulations, please contact the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) office in Soldotna at 907-262-9368.
For information on the status of fish concentrations and emergency closures use the ADF&G Soldotna Fishery Hotline (updated weekly) at 907-262-2737.
