Fish with us for the trophy-sized Chinook salmon that swim the icy cold waters of the Copper River Region in south-central Alaska, June-September. The reds continue to run into September, and the coho salmon can be found all the way into October, when the water starts to ice up and the land falls into it's deep winter freeze.
