Just another day at Whale Point



Steelhead:  Early April to late May
King Salmon: May to late June, but available all summer long. 
Silver, Pink and Chum salmon: July to late September.

Prince of Wales island has tons of bears, reportedly 1 per sq. mile. Many 8' black bears are taken yearly. 
Bear season opens from January 1 to May 31, then opens again from August 1 to Dec. 31. 
Suggested hunting dates, due to hibernation: April 10 to May 31 for spring bear, and baiting is allowed with a permit.  August 10 to Oct. 15 for fall bears. The rivers are full of salmon and fishermen see bears daily, generally. Baiting is allowed, but why would you? Simply fish with a gun. 

We are bear unit 2. Contact the Alaska game & Fish for more information on bear hunting and licenses. 

Let's not forget the excellent waterfouling in the area.
