Thread: When do salmon show up?

  1. #1

    Default When do salmon show up?

    Can anyone tell me the approximate dates when the SECOND run of sockeyes start showing up at the Russian River.

    Also, when do the silvers start their run near Seward? How far out do you have to go for the early silvers?

    Thanks,
    sailcal

    Chuck is pretty much right on with the sockeye... for silvers in Seward there are generally fish to be caught by early July, but I caught tons of fish the last week of June one year.... how far you have to go really varies, generally 20 miles from the harbor is about right. Don't expect them real close to the harbor until later in July

    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.

    Typically 4th of July you'll be able to catch them in the Chevalle Narrows, mid July they'll be available in good numbers out there.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.
