Great Salmon Fishing is All About Salmon Catching!
Kachemak Bay Salmon Fishing is one of Alaska’s Best Kept Secret.
Homer is renowned for halibut and maybe that explains why the extraordinary success of salmon anglers in Kachemak Bay is often overlooked. In addition to prolific traditional salmon runs, the winter king salmon fishery (including a very popular derby) attracts salmon angler year-round!
Winter King Fishing – From February through May, enjoy the truly unique experience of catching winter king salmon. Weighing typically between 15 – 55 pounds, their firm, succulent red and white meat is outstanding. Spawning King Salmon begin to arrive in June and average 25-60 pounds.
Sockeye (Red) Salmon – Runs begin in late June and continue into August. Known for high Omega 3 content and deep, red meat, Sockeye Salmon are caught in the bay and right off the dock in Seldovia and other Kachemak locations.
Silver Salmon – From July through September, Kachemak Bay is filled with spawning silver salmon, often weighing around 10 pounds each. During this time, fish are plentiful and Silver’s are notorious fighters, the most feisty of all salmon.
