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.

Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU!!!! The wives went with the husbands this time and are sooooo glad. The fishing was incredible, a lifetime experience. Asom and Brandon were so professional and did absolutely everything possible to make our fishing trip fun and unforgettable. We caught lots of fish and were "Salmon dancing" all over the boat. At times having all four lines busy. We went on to spend two weeks in Alaska, but nothing begins to compare with the two days spent fishing with you in Sitka. You have a extremely will run fishing service and I would highly recommend it. Thank you so very much

Hi Mike and Shelly, I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the fishing experience with S.E. Alaska Outdoor Adventures. The accomodations, Captains and crew were outstanding. Our fishing experiences were at the top of the list. It was especially nice to fish with and talk to the other guys that Al has been bringing up there. I knew Al, Howard, Dee, and Rich from working with them at our Division in Auburn. A great and fun bunch of guys ! I took over 250 photos and will add Perry's to a disc when I get his. Will send it to Al who will collect others and send you DVD,s so you can give the Captains and Crew copies of all the guys and of Mike's party. I already smoked 8 fillets and vacuum packed them for my son and friends. Here are some more halibut recipes that you may want to try (you have probably tried them all ). http://www.kasilofseafoods.com/halibut-recipes.htm Arlen Paranto 210 Orchard Ave. So P.O.
