Justin Jackson, Alaska West guide extraordinaire, drops by our blog in video format today to walk us through the basics of silver salmon fishing on the Kanektok.

Here’s the outline for Silver Fishing 101.

  • Fish slow pockets of water.
  • Use a floating line and a weighted fly to get a nice jigging action when you retrieve.
  • Strip set when the fish eats.

If you’ve been to Alaska West in August you’ve done this stuff and seen it work a whole bunch of times.  If you haven’t fished for silvers in a crazy fishery like the Kanektok, have a look!

NOTE: If you’re viewing this in a newsletter or a reader, click here to see Justin talk about silvers on YouTube.
