Fishing with Silverking Lodge
There is a relationship between Alaska and the Salmon. Many ecosystems are driven by the salmon cycle. For saltwater fishing that means that when the salmon are preparing to head upstream, the Halibut are closer to shore and hunting. Since this is a self-guided fishing adventure, it becomes important to understand how the fish her behave. One of the key points is that when the salmon are about to head into freshwater they school. So you find them all over the place and not just in the hot spots. You also want to look for areas with underwater structures because that is where the salmon like to rest. Follow the tides, because Rock Fish and Salmon will be resting behind an object facing the flow of water. That is where the water is the calmest, and they spend the least amount of energy.
The Fish, and the Seasons
The Silver Salmon are also a popular target because they are insane when you set the hook. If you get one to the surface, they will breach and twist as they put on an acrobatic display. Once you battle a Silver Salmon, you may be tainted as everything else may seem boring. Expect Silvers up to 20 pounds, which seems small next to the bigger Kings and the giant Halibut, but a better battle you will not find in either bigger species.
