King Salmon

Troll and net Kings should be available most of June. Catching in all areas has been very slow. With very low projections and shortened seasons don’t expect much relief on supply.


Copper River fishing has started out very slow with the production from the first three rounds of fishing well below projections. An extremely cold winter in Alaska is being blamed for the late run.

Southern Cook Inlet- Opens on the 1st of June with no expectation of much fish before June 10th.

Upper Cook Inlet-  Opens the third week of June with production ramping up the last week of the month.

Resurrection Bay- Just starting to produce a small quantity of Sockeyes, with its first fish expected to be available to ship this weekend.

Kodiak, Prince William Sound and Togiak- Expected to start producing around the 10th of June.

Bristol Bay- Should have decent volume by the 3rd week of the June and build from that point on.

Notes: All of Alaska has had a cold winter, this could push run timing back a bit in all areas. Weir counts in Kodiak are well below last year’s numbers at this time.



Prince William Sound- Should start producing about the second week of June.
