Plan Your Trip around the Fish Runs
Rainbow Trout are present in the two rivers all season long. Their run peaks in July with the arrival of the Sockeye Salmon.
King Salmon fishing begins Mid-May and runs through July. In early May, the kings gather in Cook Inlet as they prepare to enter the freshwater rivers. So early May to the first part of June is excellent Saltwater fishing for both Halibut and King Salmon. The salmon attract the Halibut.
The Sockeye Salmon or Reds show up around mid-June and run through the first week of August. The Sockeye Salmon are one of the largest runs in all of Alaska. The fish show up by the millions and in the shallow clear water streams the rivers look red from the color of the fish. You could bend down and pick them up with your hands. This is also the prime bear season as the bear come down to feast on the Red Salmon.
The Silver Salmon being to appear by mid-July and the stay through the end of September. Silvers are known as the fighting salmon because they put up such a fight when you hook them. They breach, roll, and run as they fight the hook. If you love adventurous fishing, try a Silver Salmon trip.
Overall, expect a good lodge with comfortable cabins and amazing fishing opportunities.
