Cordova is the Home of the giant silver salmon. Cordova has one of the best silver runs in Alaska, starting the first part of August through September and some years through October. 12 pound average, with catches of 14 to 15 pounds common with catches up to 23 + pounds. We run guided river trips each day of salmon season, 22 ft jet boat, with 140 hp Suzuki, seats up to 6 guests, includes gear as needed. We go down river and fish the banks and sand bars using chest waders, this is a great way to fish, gives everyone plenty of room to spin and fly fish.
Late June thru July it best for sockeye salmon fishing, sockeye is fly fish only. If you never fished for sockeye salmon on a fly rod, you are missing some great action.
