Red Salmon, also called Sockeye, start to show at the beginning of July and whether named for their bright red meat or for the fire engine color of their bodies at spawning, are salmon connoisseur’s most palatable reward. They enter the river in droves and fight hard off the reel – they are the fish symbol of Alaska that is largely responsible for the health and well being of our resident fish populations as well as the surrounding ecosystem.
