SALMON

Fishing for Salmon

Spinning, Coarse fishing, Fly fishing, Fresh water fishing, Game fishing, Ice fishing, Salt water fishing, Spearfishing


Thick and thrashing, catching an Atlantic, king, coho, Pacific chub, chinook, or lake salmon is a breathtaking, unforgettable trip to even more unforgettable waters.

Salmon live in some of the most spectacular landscapes, both internally spawning in rivers and living in lakes as well as out to sea, getting bigger and bigger beneath each wave with an ocean full of nutrients.

Pick your favorite method of fishing for salmon. Trolling deep with a baitcaster for big kings or on a classic Atlantic salmon fly are great styles of getting your hands on a salmon but they can also be fished with a spear.

If you get into it with a big salmon, hold onto the rod low to the water to fight a big salmon. That will keep the power of the rod coming from the back, the butt section near where you are holding onto.

Don't depend on the tip of the rod with a high rod position, leaders snap and salmon shake themselves off most often when the rod is tipped up.

After reading story upon story of salmon fishing, connect with the fish out in one of the world's finest fisheries, it's worth the wait!
