Default Prince of Wales Island

The December issue of "Fish Alaska" is dedicated to the prince of Wales island. I had a chance to catch some cohos there last summer and there are many fishing opportunities to catch lots of many kinds of fish. I found it was not easy to get much info on the place before I went. This magazine is helpful and it points out that it is one of the better places in Alaska to fish in both fresh and salt water.

Hey, thanks for the heads up. I agree it's not the easiest place to learn about, except that everyone wants you to know the place is thick with bears.

There were certainly bears there , as well as rain. It isn't cheap, a loaf of bread and a half gallon of milk was over $11 in Coffman Cove. We camped in a small place, and all 12 sites were on the water. Cell phone access was from a gravel pit about 18 miles down the road with a shot at the mainland. They just got electric in Coffman Cove a year ago, so they could shut the generators down. If you took a boat there, the good news is that you could dock it for about $50/month. Gas was high. If you fished offshore with downriggers there in July, you could fill a chest freezer in a week.
It was fun fly fishing along the road and probably later in Aug or Sept would be more prime time for cohos, but different fish at different times.
