Most Kings are here feeding on their way to somewhere else, much like the Straits. The Kings on this side of the Island are out around the entrance to Kassan Bay, 20 fathom Bank,  Grindal and Patterson Island as they move up Clarence Straits. Fish on the other side come in through the outside Islands to feed and move up and down the outside. Kings are the only salmon that don't spawn on  Island rivers, but a King fishery has been developed in Port St Nick, the  bay on the south side of Craig. The Hatchery was developed on a creek about five miles up the Bay, the fish are blocked from returning to the hatchery and just mill around the bay when they return.
    It's important to get a boat, or charter reserved for your visit, along with a vehicle. I'll have Linda call Heather down the beach, they have some nice self bailing skiffs  for their  bear hunters. They usually finish the spring bear season around the first of June. A huge part of the troll fleet that fish here are wintered in Port Angeles. So perhaps  you can gain  some  local knowledge from some of the trollers that are down there right now.
    The kings we have caught so far have just been incidental when we were using a buzz bomb to get a fish for dinner when out on the boat. There always seems to be so much do here that we haven't taken the time yet to target the kings. But that is high on the to do list for this year. NOAA has electronic charts online that you can use to get an idea of the water here. Type the content of your page here
