Summer in Alaska

Summer in Alaska

Summer is a time of bounty in Alaska.  Long, sunny days give ample time for saltwater fishing, fly fishing, berry picking, gardening, crabbing, shrimping and hunting.  The gathering of food for the winter cache can nearly reach a frenzy with the reminder of colder months around the corner.

The rivers are flush with Sockeye and Pink Salmon right now.  Silver Salmon are just starting to show up locally but can already be found in abundance in some Southeastern streams.  Kings have finished their return for spawning but can still be caught as they feed and grow for next year’s return.

Halibut are following the Pink Salmon to the rivermouths, becoming easy targets for lures and bait as they move into shallow waters.
