Chinook Salmon to 20 lbs PHENOMENAL Slack Mid Morning 120 to 180
Not Targeted: Chum Salmon, Coho Salmon, Lingcod, Pink Salmon, Rockfish, Sockeye Salmon
Chinook fishing around Thrasher Rock has been pretty amazing the past two weeks.
The fish are both offshore in 600 to 800 feet of water, or in on the structure from Thrasher marker to the red can towards Valdez. Downrigger depths range 120 to 180 feet. Lures of choice include Rhys Davis teasers in green/chartreuse, spoons in Evil Eye, Killy MaGee, Kitchen Sink and Pink Sink, or hoochies in T-Rex or Blue Meany. The smaller fish tend to be reds, the medium sized fish marbled, and the larger one whites. There is a healthy mix of wild and hatchery Chinook.This is about as good as it gets locally, so come join the fun!
Good fishing!
