Salmon Fishing

Catching and eating one of the healthiest and tastiest fish in the seafood world is one of the most popular activities to do in Alaska. Millions of salmon swim up the rivers every summer, exploding out of the water along the way. The largest king salmon caught weighed 97 pounds. May through September are the best fishing times and even first time fishing tourists can catch enough salmon to fill several 50 pound boxes with fillets to take back home.
