Sockeye Salmon are well known for their taste and nutritional value, but what is overlooked is the fact that they are also amazing fighters. They jump like crazy and can take anglers well into their backing with their ballistic runs, before finally coming to the net. With runs often hitting and surpassing the two million mark, it is no secret that when it comes to Sockeye salmon, it’s a ‘numbers game’. Averaging 7 to 9 lbs and getting up over 12 pounds, these salmon will give you a run for your money with a 7/8 wt. rod and by the end of the day you are sure to have a sore arm. Sockeye season (first -third weeks in July) is often our busiest time of year as many anglers will come to take boxes of this delicious fish back home to share with their loved ones. So book your place EARLY!
Believe it or not, we still have a few openings during prime Sockeye weeks, so book now at www.atalodge.com!
