POW Here I Come Too!
Posted by MaribuMonkey on Aug 06 2004
A group of us is heading up to POW during Labor Day (that's 29 days from now but who's counting). Below I have post the most recent report from the POW Fish and Game that may give you some insight. POW river levels have been low and warm all summer but they finally got a good hit of rain this week. That should push a lot of waiting fish up into the river systems.
Make sure you post a report when you return.
Fresh water fishing on POW is improving fast as salmon are entering island streams in good numbers. Water levels are currently rising (August 2), with the rain that started falling on Sunday (August 1) and are close to normal levels now. Chum and Pink salmon are the main species entering streams now and numbers are building fast. Try Staney Creek for chum salmon and the Maybeso for pinks and chum. Summer run coho fishing is still good at the outlet of Neck Lake and this fishery will remain good for several more weeks. Anglers can fish both the stream and in the bay (casting from shore or from a skiff) for Neck Lake coho. The Thorne River also has a few coho that have entered already and anglers should also try the Klawock for coho as a few have already entered this stream. Anglers looking for trout fishing on Prince of Wales Island should consider Control, Klawock, Eagle, Red Bay, and No Name Lake as well as the Thorne River drainage just to name a few. Please check the regulation booklet for limits and other regulations that apply to these areas.
