Find the mighty Copper River king salmon on the Klutina River, Tonsina River and Gulkana River.  Our professional Alaska river guides know the best spots on the river to catch the "hog" of your dreams. 

King Salmon are the largest species of salmon and a Copper River king salmon is one of the most exciting fish to catch! King salmon are known to "bite" bait and will be aggressive toward artificial lures and most any streamer fly. The average Copper River king salmon is about 30 pounds with small numbers of fish reaching up to 70 pounds. We provide you with top of the line bait-casting rods and reels.

Our expert guides know where the best places to fish for copper river king salmon are and can teach you how to read river water and track migrating king salmon. We will provide detailed information regarding all aspects of king salmon fishing and more during your king salmon adventure!

Fishing in the swift currents of the Copper River tributaries is challenging and rewarding.  We will teach you how how to cast, where to cast and how to manage your line throughout the drift, when to set the hook and how to land a big fish in fast water. Each hole is a little different and your guide will make sure that your leader length and the amount of lead you are fishing is appropriate for each specific drift. Setting up your tackle to match the current will help the presentation of your bait look natural to the fish. 

The idea is that when you cast your line into the water the lead weight quickly sinks and the current carries your line downstream, allowing the bait to float slightly off the bottom into the fish target zone. Always remember one of most important aspects of drift or float fishing is managing the slack in your fishing line. The more slack, the fewer fish.
