Ketchikan Fishing Charter: A Date with Alaskan Titans

The Alaskan Fishing Season: An Insight

Understanding the Alaskan fishing calendar elevates the experience:

  • Spring’s Royal Arrival: As the snow recedes and waters come alive, King Salmon, also known as Chinook, heralds the onset of the fishing season.
  • Summer’s Bounty: This is when Pink and Sockeye Salmon make their presence felt. Moreover, halibut, the sea’s leviathan, becomes the prized catch of the season. Remember, if you’re angling for King Salmon or any salmon, the season runs from May to July 1st, necessitating a King Salmon Stamp.
  • Fall & Winter: While the salmon rush might taper, species like lingcod come to the fore, ensuring the fishing action remains relentless.
