The mighty king salmon may just be the baddest freshwater fish one can tangle with. Combine the short season, specialized tackle, their overall size, tenacity and the nearly unpredictable nature of these beasts, and it becomes clear that you will earn every Chinook salmon you touch. This is a special species, one that should be cherished and protected whenever possible, and is deserving of much respect. When you do tame the beast, take a moment, look in its eyes. You will gain an understanding why these fish are king and it will likely change you and your angling forever.

The destinations below stand out in the realm of swinging Spey rods for kings in AK and there is limited availability at each for next season. Act quickly if you’re up for the challenge in 2021!
