Fly angling for king salmon is one of freshwater’s greatest challenges. Maximizing opportunity is the key to success. This can be as simple as choosing the right river system. Some river’s in which these beasts swim are just not conducive to swinging flies. With that said there are several in which anglers can cover productive water with the traditional down and across approach, effectively showing these fish their fly in a consistent manner. This fact alone will ensure anglers a consistent opportunity to connect with the mighty king. Below you will see our favorite destinations in the great state of Alaska to swing for the king. All these destinations have a winning combination of the right water(close to tidewater), king focused programs, skilled king guides, the right equipment and attitude for success.
