Coho (Silver) Salmon

Alaskan Coho Salmon Fishing

Lean, mean and full of fight, Alaskan Coho salmon are some of the most fun you can have with a hook in the water. Also known as silvers, wild Alaskan Coho salmon put up enough of a struggle to give even the most experienced fly-fishing enthusiast a run for his or her money — providing some of the best fishing to be experienced anywhere in Alaska. When it comes to Coho salmon fishing trips, Rainbow King Lodge is perhaps the best place in the world. Our combination of beautiful surroundings, five-star amenities and abundant fishing makes us the top destination.

The Tale of the Tape

Weighing between 8 and 15 pounds normally, Coho salmon typically are fished close to tidewaters. Starting bright and silver, the longer they stay in fresh water, they begin to take on a much different appearance, morphing into red-and-black hook-jawed monstrosities. The best time to fish these aggressive beasts is in August and September, when they will attack flies and spinners with reckless abandon.

Coho Salmon Fishing at Rainbow King Lodge

Rainbow King Lodge offers the serious fishing enthusiast the opportunity for a once-in-a-lifetime experience — and fly-fishing for Coho salmon is no exception. For instance, one of the prime locations for Coho salmon fishing we offer is the Kamishak River flowing from the coastal mountains of the Katmai National Park and Preserve. To reach this remote stream in Katmai National Park, we fly in a float plane to the river’s estuary. Once there, you transfer to jetboats we have stationed in the lower reaches of the river, and then run several miles up the winding river. From there, you’ll experience fishing for Coho salmon in some of the most awe-inspiring scenery you’ll ever see.
