Want to catch more fish in Alaska? Here are three ways you can.
Three Alaska Fishing Tips
- Cover more water. In the remote areas of our great state, fish tend to be pretty aggressive. Most anglers would be better served by covering more water. Make a couple of quality casts into a piece of water and then move on – if he’s in there, he’s probably going to eat it the first time he sees it.
- Test your knots. Every time you tie a knot, pull on it – hard. The fish up here are big, and it’d be a shame to lose a nice one to a bad knot. Even our guides who tie thousands of knots each year test every one. Everybody ties bad knots sometimes, and it’s better to figure it out when there’s no fish attached.
- Target salmon during low light. Bright sun can be great when you’re trout fishing, but if the sun is low or it’s cloudy the salmon fishing tends to be better. This especially applies during the early morning – fish your butt off in that first run of the morning…this is often when the magic happens.
