Default When does the Salmon Run normally begin??

We were in Alaska in late August several years ago. The salmon were running in the streams in Ketchikan and Juneau. Planning our next trip and wandering what would be the earliest month to catch the salmon run again?

Well, there are multiple runs depending on the type of salmon. Most people are interested in Kings, sockeye and silvers and they run in that approximate order. But to know exactly when there will be salmon also depends on location in Alaska.

Did I answer your question of thoroughly confuse you with generalities?

The Alaska Fish and Game web site provides that kind of information.

In 2009, we fished for Kings. They just began running in mid-June. In another year, we saw pink and cojo in late July.

It will vary by stream, species, year and height of the river or stream but you will likely find salmon running in at least one stream during the months of July, August and September.
