Catching Alaska Sockeye!

Hope you have made it out this year in Alaska to chase some Sockeye Salmon! We had a good first run of Sockeye in the Russian River this year with the season opening on June 11th and the sanctuary opening shortly after with an increase in the limit to 6 fish! The crowds were also in full force but there was plenty of fish around. This year you had to also battle with all the smoke that has been around as wildfires burn out of control around the state! Bears and mosquitos have not been to bad this year!
There was also a good run of fish in the copper and Klutina rivers this year. The Kasilof is also seeing a good run of fish and limits have been raised to 6 fish there as well. I was able to get some sockeye out of the Kasilof this year and quite enjoyed fishing without the crowds that you see on the Russian and Kenai!
The second run has started and the numbers are increasing everyday now coming into the lower river. The trout and dolly fishing should pick up as well with more fish coming into the river now!
Good luck out there and keep those lines tight!
