Alaska Sockeye Salmon Fishing

with Alaska's Fisherman's Choice Fishing Charters

Alaska Sockeye Salmon (Red Salmon) arrive shortly after the Alaska King Salmon fishing begins on the Little Susitna River here in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. Though best for smoking, the Chum Salmon and Pink Salmon are both superior fighters and are great fun fishing, fighting and catching! The Chum Salmon and Pink Salmon fishing continues through the month of August also. The Sockeye Salmon also appear in a second and more abundant run in mid-July.

These chrome bright acrobats range from 4 to 12 pounds, and pound for pound are one of the best fighters of the Alaska salmon species, and are our favorite on the grill. Alaska Sockeye Salmon fishing can go right through August.

The Chum Salmon (Dog Salmon) and Pink Salmon (Humpy Salmon) start filtering into the Matanuska-Susitna Valley rivers in mid-July. The Chum Salmon and Pink Salmon fishing continues through the month of August also.

There were not as many Alaska Chum Salmon as usual that passed through the weir on the Little Susitna River during the 2014 salmon fishing season. The Alaska Sockeye Salmon run on the Little Susitna River was fair for the 2014 Alaska Salmon Fishing Season.
