The Wade Fisherman's Dream


What makes the Tsiu River the best silver salmon river in Alaska? First, the sheer number of fish, and the run is very stable.  You will be fishing a gravel and sand bottom stream that is very easy and safe to wade. There are no slippery rocks or swift water to contend with. You will sight cast to chrome-bright fish just as they come in from the surf. The gin-clear water varies between two and five feet in depth, so you can walk almost anywhere in the river wearing chest waders. Fly-fisherman, using a combination of streamers, "flash" flies, and big dry flies skated across the pools, will be astounded at the numbers of fish hooked up. Casting and spinning gear fisherman will catch these huge silvers primarily on spoons and spinners.
