regulations for jig
Posted by alaskanfishguides on Apr 20 2006
You will likely need an attorney to fully understand the Alaska Fishing Regulations, but here are some general rules related to gear:

"Sport fishing gear: Unless provided in 5 AAC 75.020 -- 5 AAC 75.049 (area-specific regulations), or by the area regulations in 5 AAC 46 -- 5 AAC 70, sport fishing may only be conducted by the use of a single line having attached to it not more than one plug, spoon, spinner, or series of spinners, or two flies, or two hooks. The line must be closely attended. The use of any explosive or toxicant for taking fish in the waters of Alaska is prohibited."

"Gear for fly-fishing-only waters: In waters designated as fly-fishing-only waters, sport fishing is permitted only as follows: (1) with not more than one unweighted, single-hook fly with gap between point and shank of 3/8 inch or less; (2) Weights may only be used 18 inches or more ahead of the fly; (3) Beads not attached to the fly are not allowed."

There are definitely some fly fish only areas on the Kenai, so you will want to understand exaxtly where those are and keep the jigs put away while fishing in those areas.  Otherwise, my best interpretation is that it is legal tackle.

Good luck,
