World Class Salmon Fishing

The waters off the West coast of Prince of Wales Island are famous for world-class salmon fishing.  From early June through July, King salmon are abundant and range from 20 to 60 pounds. These bright, ocean-run fish hit hard and fight strong. Typically, in early July the silvers come on the scene and can be caught in the ocean through the end of August. They are lively fighters and the limit is generous so the fishing action is nearly nonstop more days than not. Combine this with an abundant fishery of halibut, sea bass and several varieties of cod, and the action seldom stops.

River fishing kicks off in late April with steelhead and trout. Steelhead is a more elusive fish. The state's regulations require catch and release. In addition, artificial lures and flies with barbless hooks are regulated to maintain the wild run. Sockeye salmon are next in the streams in late June. They are the most difficult variety of salmon to get to bite. Our guides can show you some of the lures and flies that will tempt the sockeye into bighting. The most exciting river run fish is the Coho (silver) salmon. There are two main runs. The first and smaller of the two runs is in late June through July, and the second and biggest run begins in mid August and lasts through September. With a daily limit of 6 silvers, your fish box is sure to fill up quickly.
