Salmon Fishing on The Deshka River
The Deshka River is one of South Central Alaska’s best salmon fishing streams. The Deshka boasts large returns of king (chinook) salmon and silver (coho) salmon as well as pink (humpy) salmon.
King salmon begin to arrive in mid May and the run develops into the peak of the season during the month of June. The Deshka River is best known for great king salmon fishing and it provides our anglers with ample opportunity to catch an Alaska king salmon. These salmon are the largest of the 5 species of North Pacific salmon that run past our lodge. They average 18-25 pounds and can range up to 50 pounds.
Not far behind king salmon in popularity are the feisty silver salmon. They begin to arrive in good numbers to the Deshka River around mid July. Silvers are fun to catch and are typically good biters that provide lots of action. These fish are great fighters on light tackle and are very good eating.
