All five species of Pacific Salmon inhabit our waters and fishing for King and Silver Salmon in the waters surrounding Prince of Wales Island is considered by many to be amongst the finest in the world.
King Salmon fishing kicks off our season in May and can last through August. Kings in our area are big, strong and bright ocean fish. Kings topping 30lbs are fairly common and occasionally, fish in excess of 40, 50 and even 60lbs are caught. Kings are known for strong powerful runs and relentless determination. A big King Salmon will test your mettle and fighting one is an experience you won’t soon forget!
Silver Salmon are next on the scene and begin showing up in June most years. The biggest run of Silvers is typically seen in July and August. When the Silver bite is hot the fishing can be electric. Silvers are unpredictable fighters, often leaping and cart wheeling in every direction. Multiple hook-ups are common and the scene can be pure mayhem!
There is an abundance of species of bottom fish in our waters including halibut, lingcod, yellow eye, black bass, rockfish and others, these species provide even more fun and help to round out our catch.
