  • Valdez pink run timing?

    When do the pinks run in Valdez? Co2AK turned me onto the kids derby July 18 and I thought I'd ask, generally, historically, when do the pinks run in Valdez? We'd be fishing from the shore, although I do have a 16' Hewescraft Sea Runner I could tow behind and fish offshore. Don't know if the 18th of July works out the best for me as thats usually when we dipnet at the mouth of the Kenai.

    Thanks,

    I have only been ther once, July 19-21 2006. The pinks were extremely thick at alyson point.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

        as early as late June

        I fished out side the passage last year on June 28th. I had a blast. We cought them untill we were ready to head out for some But fishing.
        Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

          Wow. I've heard they had great pink fishing there. Can you bank-fish at Alyson point? Any good streams to pink fish around there, kinda like Resurrection at Hope?

            Allison Point

            There is plenty of ocean fishing at Allison Point. Lots of parking too.

            There is "NO" stream fishing for pinks in the Port of Valdez. Exception is Robe River which is fly fishing only.

              Record pink run should show up this season....

              in Valdez, I hear from the locals. Catch a lot out a ways in mid june sometimes a little later, but I think it is closer to first week in July before they are thick at the shore fishery at Alison Pt. Some days it's a wonder any get through the gauntlet of seiners just past the narrows, but there always seems to be more than plenty of pinks for everyone.
