Plan to include a charter halibut fishing trip on your visit to the Alaska Kenai Peninsula?   Be sure to read this.

If you plan to fish halibut on a charter boat this year in regulated area 3A (that applies to the saltwater charters that Bear Paw Adventure will book for you) these regulations will apply to your trip.

  • The daily bag limit for each person is 2 halibut, one of any size and the 2nd no longer than 28 inches.
  • Charter halibut fishing on Wednesdays the entire year is closed.
  • Charter halibut fishing is also closed on Tuesday, July 26 and on Tuesday, August 2.

Halibut charter operator vessels are permitted to do only one halibut charter trip per day and their Pacific Halibut Permit can only be used for one charter trip per day.
