- Contact a bait shop in the area you plan on fishing and inquire about guides and charter services in the area. Alaska Salmon has many potentials.
- Plan far in advance. Good guides will have busy schedules, so don't wait until the last minute to call them.
- Contact the guides and have a brief conversation with each one. Ask them what a typical day will be like, what their rates are, and whether they can provide any equipment you might need.
- Ask for references and don't be shy about contacting the references.

Ketchican Alaska Salmon Charters and Vacations|
Posted by glock on Monday, November 10, 2008 (19:19:11) (7478 reads)
Ketchikan is known as the "Salmon Capitol of the World". Ketchikan is a small community located on Revillagidedo island which is on the edge of Alaska in some of the greatest salmon fishing waters. The waters include five unique types of salmon; Chinook Salmon, King Salmon, Red or Sockeye Salmon, Silver or Coho Salmon, Pink of Humpback Salmon, and Chum.
One of the great things about Charters in Ketchikan is the fish are a very short ride from the harbors. Often times, the Salmon or only 15 minutes away. More time in the water and less of a boat ride. What more could you ask for. Many of these Ketchican, Alaska Charters offer a complete package which includes lodging, delicious Alaskan meals, and beautiful views. Ketchikan also offers a historic downtown and numerous totem pole parks.
Alaska Airlines offers flights in and out of Ketchikan several times a day. A typical Alaskan Salmon adventure would start with arriving on Alaska Airlines. A rental van is available and can be reserved at the Ketchikan Airport. There are many different charters to chose from with an average trip lasting three days.
Ketchikan Alaska offers excitement for your Salmon adventure.
Hot Shots in Rivers|

® Luhr Jensen Technical Information Sheet #8822-005, Hot Shots in Rivers
Tech Sheet Hot Shots in Rivers
The Hot Shot is a self-planing, diving lure. Its design incorporates a built-in planing bill which makes it dive when pulled through the water the faster it’s pulled, the deeper it dives.
Because of this built-in, natural swimming action, Hot Shots are often used with no additional weight attached to the line. You simply use the existing river current or reel in line to make the plug dive.
The big advantage of using a non-weighted plug is that the lure will naturally follow the river currents, guiding it around snags and rocks, while still maintaining a position near the bottom, the home of most game fish.
When rigging to use Hot Shots, most any rod and reel combination is acceptable. The choice will depend on your personal preference. However, the Hot Shotting technique has resulted in some very specialized rods being manufactured for salmon and steelhead, and "Hot Shot" actions are commonplace. These rods feature a heavy butt, with a light, sensitive tip that allows maximum visual contact of the lure’s action. As you become more familiar with the technique, you may wish to purchase one of these specialized rods.
Line choices are important in relation to how deep you wish the plug to dive. Light monofilament lines generate less water resistance and allow the Hot Shot to dive deeper, while heavier lines will increase friction and produce a shallower dive. Braided "superlines" offer an outstanding combination of incredible strength and small diameter that provides maximum power, without sacrificing dive depth. Unique in design, Rapala® Titanium® Stretch Braid offers both those advantages along with 7% stretch to cushion hard strikes. Choose 20- to 30-pound braid (8- to 10-pound diameter) for trout and 50- to 65-pound (14- to 20-pound diameter) for steelhead and salmon. When fishing braids, it's common to add a barrel swivel and three-foot monofilament leader between the mainline and lure.
Pacific Ocean and Buoy 10 Coho and Chinook Salmon Fishing|
Posted by glock on Wednesday, August 29, 2007 (18:10:55) (10664 reads)
The Ocean off the mouth of the Columbia River is know as Buoy 10. Buoy 10 offers fantastic fishing for Coho and King Chinook Salmon. Many anglers reach their limits on a daily basis. This Ocean and Buoy 10 Fishery is one of the most productive Salmon Fishery in the Pacific Northwest.
Many anglers also fish the Columbia River. This Ocean and Buoy 10 Fishery is one of the most productive Salmon Fishery in the Pacific Northwest. Many anglers also fish the Columbia River. This is the season for Fall chinook salmon or King Salmon fishing popular destinations on the Oregon Coast including Tillamook Bay, Newport - Yaquina river, Lincoln City - Siletz River and Nehalem River and Bay. With all these options, how do you know where to fish and what to fish with? This brings me back to our earlier article about a fishing charter and fishing guide service.
Guided fishing trips are offered all along the Oregon and Washington Coast. Some are more productive then others. One of the key points into making a guided fishing trip successful is doing your homework on where the fish are. You fishing guide should be able to tell you where they are catching fish, but be prepared to do some research on your own.
Our research indicates the following fishing schedule. [list]
[*]Giant Over-sized Columbia River Sturgeon fishing - August - September
[*]Buoy 10 Salmon fishing - August
[*]Fall Chinook Salmon (King Salmon fishing) - August - November
[*]Catch and release Sturgeon fishing - year round
[*]Best fishing season - August - January
Remember that a fishing guide and charter service rely on word of mouth advertising as a source of business. They want you to have a great fishing adventure so you will tell your friends about it.
Anglers fishing portions of Puget Sound reminded to properly release wild chinoo|
Posted by glock on Tuesday, July 24, 2007 (00:27:20) (11868 reads)
OLYMPIA – With summer salmon fisheries getting under way, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is reminding anglers fishing in several areas of Puget Sound to carefully release any wild chinook they catch.
Under state mark-selective fishing rules, anglers fishing this summer in six marine areas of Puget Sound are required to release any chinook salmon with an intact adipose fin. Hatchery fish, which are marked with a clipped adipose fin, may be retained.
Anglers participating in these fisheries are required to use single-point barbless hooks and must properly release any wild chinook.
“People need to be aware that we’ve added seven new mark-selective fisheries for chinook in Puget Sound – four in the summer and three in the winter,” said Steve Thiesfeld, Puget Sound recreational salmon manager for WDFW. “Most anglers are good about following the rules, but they should still double-check the regulation pamphlet before heading out.”
While most summer chinook selective fisheries begin in July, two have already started. Marine areas 11 (Tacoma-Vashon Island) and 13 (South Puget Sound) are open for hatchery chinook salmon through September
