Fishing for King Salmon in Alaska

As mentioned above, Alaskan King Salmon caught in the Sitka region average around 25 to 30 pounds; with larger fish up to 70 pounds. It all starts with biological urge of the King Salmon to return to the original river from which they came. After leaving their home stream, Kings spend 1 to 7 years out in the ocean feeding and growing big and strong. Then, Mother Nature’s biological clock kicks in, compelling salmon to return to their original stream. On entry into freshwater, this is when the salmon start to die. Females are heading home for one reason only – to spawn! After dropping the thousands of eggs which she is carrying back to the stream,  the male King Salmon will fertilize these eggs and the cycle will start all over again.

King salmon usually start to show up in Sitka waters in May, in preparation for their inland spawning runs. The skippers and crews at South East Alaska Outdoor Adventures start fishing charters in May, and Kings can be caught through until October in most years.  this river around the 21st of May. As the days pass by, more and more kings show up in the river. Trip timing is important, so booking your trip early for peak fishing periods is a key component in your success.

The later you arrive in the season, the runs are starting to slow down. Book your date early to guarantee a bright and shiny King Salmon.

Shelley! I have been long overdue to write you to tell you what an AWESOME time we had fishing with your outfit! We had a wonderful time. I was very impressed with the entire operation from start to finish. You were very accommodating with our travels plans, were right there to pick us up, had a nice dinner ready, had a car available, put right on top of fish each day, had comfortable homey accommodations, processed all our fish, and dropped us off on our departure day. Your home is beautiful, the staff was so friendly and truly came across as though they enjoyed what they were doing and were happy to have us there. I will be telling all our crew members about your outfit. I hope we weren't too low key, in bed at 9pm every night...Plan on seeing us again!

This is the third time we have fished with S.E.Alaska Outdoor Adventures and it will not be our last! Every time we are there we catch our limit of fish without question, we get more and more acquainted with Mike, Shelley, Assam, Paul, Bob and the rest of the FAMILY (literally) and feel more a part of the Family each time we arrive. The fishing is undoubtedly the best we ever have and we go every year on our annual trip. We fish hard and relax just as hard. No pressure from anyone about anything. This is the place that you and your group need to go to experience what Alaska fishing and Hospitality is all about. 100+ pounds of fresh frozen filets each and friendships that we hope will last our lifetime are what these trips are all about. You really have to experience this adventure at least once. Thanks EVERYONE for a most wonderful experience and for all of the memories. The fish ain't too shabby either.
