    Default River Salmon fishing in the Valdez area

    I will be in Valdez in late June, I would like to fish salmon from shore. What would be my best bet, and what lures should I bring. Thanks Allot for your Help, I have never fished for slamon.

    You can fish Allison Point from shore as well as the harbor in town. I like to use Vibrax and Mepps in the #4 size range. I have caught many fish in both areas using those specific lures. Good luck.

    sadly the salmon dont start to run in valdez until july. if you take a charter you might be able to troll for some feeder kings or very early pinks. there is one option though... ADF&G has been attempting to establish a king fishery in valdez. the attempt has been pretty half ass but there is a chance of catching one in june. call them and ask for directions to the king salmon lagoon. if some have returned a #6 chartreuse vibrax tossed into the salt should do the trick. good luck
