Alaska salmon fishing report for Kingfisher Lodge in Craig Alaska for the 21st of June. Today we departed the lodge at 5 am arriving at Cape Felix around 6 am and the salmon still keep flushing onto the beach where much of the sport fleet has been fishing. Granite has also been a high producer of King salmon, limits are easily met despite a 2 fish per day limit. We were done with our limits of King salmon before 8 am after releasing a few smaller fish ending up with our dozen for the day, the largest being 28 pounds. Halibut fishing for us today was a priority as we have struggled producing any amount of respectable fish off Sumez island. Today we spent the rest of the day hunting for halibut and we did find a better source  having to release three large fish one at about 72 inches and several hundred pounds caught by Hoyt Huffman, one about 65″ at about 140 pounds caught by Nate Underwood, and David Underwood landed a nice one as well at 48″ which we also had to release since it was over the 44″ maximum. Congratulations to them all on the nice catch.
