Alaska King Salmon Fishing
King salmon are accessed in saltwater by traveling and fishing from boats out of the lodge. Most saltwater kings are taken while trolling with down-riggers. Several other species are caught while trolling so there is a variety in the catch. It’s common to catch halibut, sea bass, silver salmon and ling cod while trolling for kings. Several kings are taken while jigging for halibut and silver salmon. In the big ocean you never know what may happen.The largest kings taken by AlpenView anglers are taken in saltwater and some have exceeded 60 pounds. Saltwater king salmon are available throughout the lodge season (July, August and September). The best saltwater King fishing usually occurs in late July and early August.
