King Salmon Fishing Alaska

The most prized species of salmon for most fishers who travel to Alaska is the King salmon, also known as Chinook salmon. While they can be caught any time of the year, early May through June is the peak for king salmon fishing. Current regulations for Alaska fishing require that a King Salmon stamp be purchased on the Alaska Department of Fish & Game website, but it is well worth the investment for the experience of catching an incredibly fast King and getting to take home amazing salmon fillets for yourself.

There are also several other kinds of salmon available for catching throughout the year in Elfin Cove, including Coho salmon and chum salmon in the oceans and bays, and pink salmon in the nearby rivers. All of them are tasty for eating, and put up an excellent fight that will challenge even the most seasoned fishers. If you’re a Coho lover or hoping to smoke chum salmon once you get home, we’ll take you to the perfect spots for what you’re looking for and get you some incredible fish!
