Naknek Pink & Silver Salmon

Silver Season is Beginning on the Naknek!

King season is officially over on the Naknek with the last week of July being a great week for catching giant fish. Silver season is here! August 1st is the beginning of Silver season for us and we started out the season with landing some silvers but we are looking forward to the Coho fishing getting better over the next couple of weeks there are fishable numbers now, but it is just getting started and will continue to grow. While we wait for the Silvers to show up in force we will just have to enjoy the awesome Chum fishing we have been having. Rainbow fishing has been great this last week on the main river and fly out creeks. The Naknek river bows are still chasing down streamers and fattening up. Catching big rainbows on streamers is one of the reasons why the Naknek is so unique there are plenty of rivers in Alaska with great bead fishing but here they hit streamers for an extended season. The remote stream fishing has been great with now sockeyes moving into some creeks as well the list of creeks to go to is decently long and the choice can be a hard one to make some days. The Grayling and Char fishing in these locations is going great along with the rainbows.
