Fishing with Great Chinook Lodge
The Fish and the Adventure
Salmon Fishing is awesome here. All five species of Pacific Salmon are available in the local waters, and the lodge primarily targets Chinook and Coho. Chinook or King Salmon are the biggest of the five and the record for an Alaska caught King Salmon is 126 pounds. Expect to find Chinook Salmon in the 20-50 pound range with an occasional 70 plus pound fish on the line. The plus about fishing for Salmon in the Ocean is that the fish are healthy and strong. Once they hit the rivers, they start to deteriorate as their body morphs into spawning mode. The ocean salmon are the freshest. The Silver Salmon or Coho Salmon are smaller in the 10-12 pound range, and they offer a tremendous sport. These are true fighters, and they will dazzle and amaze you with their aerobatics, and shenanigans.
The Rockfish and Ling Cod scene is good too. If you fly fish, consider trying your hand at fly fishing for Salmon, Ling Cod, and Rock Fish. The experience is amazing, but it requires a sinking fly. Spin Casting is also an excellent choice for all of these fish.
