MONSTER SILVER SALMON ON THE ALASKA PENINSULA
During September 10th to the 17th, I had the oppotunity to revisit the best silver salmon fishing in the world at Gary LaRose Pumice Creek Lodge. Pumice Creek Lodge is located down the Alaska Peninsula about an hours flight out of the town of King Salmon. I had the pleasure of fishing with friends Cole Lundquist and Rob Nevin.
At Pumice Creek you are given the option of flying to the Cinder River for a day of monster arm busting silver salmon or flying to Lava Creek for a day of char fishing.
We fished for silvers everyday but one when we headed to Lava Creek. Both silvers and char were in abundance as my best day was 72 silvers at the Cinder and 62 char on Lava Creek of which many were spawning males in their brillant coloration up to 26 inches. My largest silver was estimated at 17lbs.
This was my 23rd year fishing on the Alaska Peninsula. The Cinder has some of the largest silvers found and in abundance. Here you will see no other fishermen other than the local Brown Bears.
Gary runs a great lodge and guide Todd Byard does a great job of putting clients onto the fish!
Have already make plans to make my streak at 24 as booked for another great fishing week in September.
