Seward Saltwater Silvers and Kasilof River Freshwater Silvers
Silvers by the Hundreds!
In late July and August the plentiful wild Alaskan Coho “Silver” salmon draws folks from all over the world to Seward. These acrobatic fish are pound-for-pound the best fighting fish in the world. We provide three opportunities to observe their patented “double back flip with three twists” defense:
- saltwater charters from Seward, where the limit is six fish per person and you can come away with a load of fish like this couple did
- river fishing from boats in the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers
- fly-in trips by float plane across Cook Inlet
Seward Variety Fishing
In Seward you have the option of extending your usual 8 hour silver trip into a 10 hour variety fishing trip. That gives time to also fish for other species such as lingcod, rockfish, red snapper (yelloweye rockfish) and even halibut.
Kasilof River Drift Boat Charters
River fishing for silvers begins August 3rd and our Kasilof trips are 7 hours in our custom-built drift boats. On even-numbered years, there is a bonus of tremendous pink salmon fishing also which can be so intense your arms will be sore for days.
Special Fly-in Float Plane Charters
Fly-in trips for silvers can also be arranged. This is an exciting opportunity not only to get in some great fishing, but also breathtaking sightseeing during the flight. These trips are about 8 hours and as a bonus, usually take you up close and personal with a number of four-legged, brown-haired fishermen with big teeth. I’m not talking about your twin cousins here but real, wild, Kodiak brown bears. Overall this is the most exciting trip available. Silver salmon fishing here starts in late July.
