Silver Alaska Fishing Season

As the Alaska king salmon season begins to taper off at Island Point Lodge in July, that doesn’t mean the salmon season, in general, has come to an end. The season of the silvers, coho salmon, begins nearing the end of July and thrives until late October. While the silver salmon is not quite as large at the king salmon, they remain a candidate to wrestle with while fishing in Alaska. Silvers are aggressive and will most definitely put up a fight with their intense strikes. You can expect these feisty creatures to give you a run for your money as they generally weigh between eight to 12 lbs. However, silvers can reach up to around 30 pounds and are a force to be reckoned with.
