King Salmon Fishing in Alaska
King (Chinook) salmon are one of the most prized catches out there due to their massive size, firm texture, and rich flavor. When it comes to King salmon fishing, Alaska offers an unbeatable experience! Peak Alaska king salmon fishing season runs from May through Mid-July, but they can be found here year-round. May through June is "Trophy King" season because during this time 30- to 90-pound kings feed in these Kodiak, Alaska waters and people come to catch the 50-pound plus chrome bright king salmon.
Silver Salmon Fishing in Alaska
Silver (Coho) salmon are fast, aggressive swimmers with a firm, mild, orange flesh that is great for canning or grilling, making them very popular with fishermen. Ten- to 22-pound Silver Salmon arrive in early July and are fished in much the same way we fish for Alaskan King Salmon. Alaska silver salmon fishing is at its peak from mid-August into September. Load up your fish boxes with five Silvers per day per person! Add that to the rest of your catch and your home freezer will be FULL.
Alaska Salmon Fishing Daily Per Person Limits
