Alaska offers great fly fishing, and fine halibut as well, but are you looking for Alaska king salmon? Go after king salmon between May and October. While the fish will average 25 to 35 pounds in weight, they can reach 70 or more. Trolling, mooching, and jiggling are the methods most likely to get you the results you want; you may even find you hook two at the same time.

But if you don’t want to look too long, consider obtaining the services of a professional. Fishing may be just about Alaska’s most popular outdoor sport, offering world class king salmon and silver salmon fishing for fishermen of any age. The best way to fish Alaska’s waters successfully, if you’re coming form out of state, is to hire a fishing guide. Coast Guard licensed guides can provide all the tackle, gear, and knowledge you need to enjoy your fishing trip. State of Alaska Department of Fish and Game statistics suggest that an unguided angler will spend just about 40 hours on the water, before they hook a king salmon, while guided anglers will hook and land a king salmon after only a few hours.

How will you choose a guide? Before you ask any questions, you’ll want to find some answers out for yourself. The most important factor is to decide which geographic area within Alaska you’ll visit. Whether you’re headed to the Arctic, the interior, the south central region, the southeast, or the southwest, figure out where you want to go. Another important factor is to figure out which species of you want to fish. Are you interested in Alaska King salmon, red salmon, silver salmon, Alaska halibut, arctic char, northern pike, steelhead, or rainbow trout? The more you know what you want, the more likely you are to be able to find it.

Now that you have figured out where you want to go, and what you want to fish, you’re ready to identify guides in the region. When you contact guides you’d like to work with, make sure you ask for references. Go ahead and contact these references, and ask them a few questions about their trip. How long was their boat trip, and how much fishing time did they get? Don’t stint the time that you spend on the water; you’d best dedicate a full ten hours, since salmon can be elusive targets.
