Sportfishing report for Kingfisher Lodge in Craig Alaska August 4th-6th was close to exceptional for King salmon and Silver salmon including the weather. Coho or Silver salmon had moved in off Baker island and after 8 days of having it literally to ourselves word got out that there was fish there and by the 6th there were most all the boats in the Craig area fishing in Veta bay. It was quite impressive to see the armada of boats coming out to join us in the morning as around 50 boats were in line heading to catch the hungry salmon. The 4th and 5th the fish were biting early on and most boats had their limits fairly early on the Silver salmon but on the 6th it was slow and many boats fished for a few hours only landing a handful of salmon, but near the tide change the fish started moving in and feeding well and in no time we had our limits of Coho salmon. We ended the last day with only 3 King salmon but were happy with what we caught as many of the Silvers were as big as small Kings with one weighing in at 16 pounds that Ray Stevenson caught. Over all the past 3 days was exceptional fishing. Check out the rest of the photo’s on our Facebook page in the link to the right.
