Silver Salmon will start making their way back into the freshwater rivers on the Alaska Peninsula after spending 4 to 5 years of their life in saltwater.
The Alaska Peninsula is a strip of land which extends Southwest from Mainland Alaska. It spreads for 500 miles between the Pacific Ocean and Bristol Bay, an arm off the Bering Sea.
The volcanic Aleutian range runs the entire length of the Peninsula.
The Peninsula offers perhaps the best silver salmon fishing found on earth! Virtually these rivers are unfished except for the large population of local brown bears.
Having fished the Peninsual for over 20 years, I have found Gary LaRose's Pumice Creek Lodge to offer the best salmon fishing for both size and numbers.
LaRose offers daily flightouts to the Cinder River where silver salmon are in abundance. Here you need no downriggers or heavy sinkers to get to the silvers. These are dime bright fresh from the ocean silvers who can be caught using spinning and fly fishing equipment.
I spin fish for these silvers and have had many 100+ catch days using pixee spoons and Blue Fox Vibrax spinners as my main tackle.
Most fishing is done casting the rivers while wading. The rivers are mostly small and very safe to fish. LaRose has 2 full time guides working for him to put you onto the salmon.
