King Salmon (Chinook) are the first to arrive in Prince William Sound, as early as May, and can be found all summer long.  King Salmon are the largest of the 5 species of Pacific Salmon.  They have been caught upward of 45 pounds in the Valdez area.  They are commonly around 15-25 pounds.

Pink Salmon

Pink Salmon (Humpies) can be found in Prince William Sound mid-June and are normally present near the Valdez shores by the first weekend in July.  Most people prefer to can or smoke the pinks.  Average size is about 6 pounds.  

Silver Salmon (Coho) can be found in Prince William Sound as early as mid-July and are prevalent in the Valdez Area by the first week in August.  The run is usually over by the first week of September.  Pound for pound, the Coho Salmon are the most acrobatic and provide the most fight.  They average between 8 and 18 pounds but can be larger.  We have personally landed one at 21 pounds

King and Chum Salmon

Chum Salmon (Dog or Keta) are also occasionally caught in Prince William Sound and are very tasty when smoked.  (the first and third fish in the photo are chum, the second and fourth are kings)

 Sockeye Salmon (Reds) are also occasionally found in Prince William Sound but are not abundant there as they are in the Copper River, Kenai River and other areas of Alaska and

are therefore not targeted by salmon fisherman in Prince William Sound

NOTE:  We do NOT fish for Halibut
