Sockeye Red Salmon

Sockeye salmon begin to swim into the Iliamna and Lake Clark area by the millions in late June and early July. As they move through the lake and enter mountain streams, they turn from silver to a pink then a vibrant red. Casting in a mountain stream, surrounded by hundreds of reds is a truly memorable experience. These feisty fighters will be well worth the catch if you take them home for dinner. A respectable sockeye will weight between 6-10 pounds.
