Alaska: Sockeye Salmon

The North American Fisherman team visited Alaska for sockeye salmon, and offer tips on planning your own trip.

An experienced fly fisherman should have no trouble hooking sockeyes. These beauties are hard-fighting and plentiful up in the great frontier of Alaska.

When planning a trip to fish salmon location can play a part, but the biggest factor is timing. One or two weeks can make a huge difference in the amount of fish you'll see during a spawning period.
