Fishing in Alaska happens all year round, but, if you are coming from out of state, you’ll likely be visiting in the summer, and June fishing in Alaska is hard to beat. The peak season for many species will be occurring in June, so your chance at a personal best is not out of reach. Early summer fishing in Alaska can be very rewarding and you’re about to find out why.

First Come, First Served

Kayaking, hiking, and sightseeing are all well and good, but you’re here to fish. You’ll have less competition on the Kenai Peninsula and other hot-spots, giving you the solitude you deserve. 

Seize the Day

Weather in Alaska is anything but predictable, but one thing is certain, you’ll have more time for fishing as daylight hours are highest from May to late July, making June fishing in Alaska perfect for gaining the most out of the extra light. On top of that, you’ll have more time for other daytime activities besides fishing because of all the extra light! June 21–the summer solstice– brings 20 hours of light to the Kenai Peninsula, making it an excellent day to put at the center of your Alaska fishing adventure, and you will get to experience the midnight sun! 

What to Target for Early Summer Fishing in Alaska

After the ground has thawed and the landscape becomes more vibrant, the mighty king salmon will peak in numbers as they enter both the Kasilof and Kenai Rivers. On the other hand, June fishing in Alaska also lends itself to unrivaled ocean fishing for king salmon, halibut, and rockfish, as those fish will be in peak season.
