Fishing for Chrome Chum Salmon

Chum salmon get a bad wrap. Most of that is just snobbishness on the part of fishermen who don't appreciate an abundant, hard-fighting fish. But the chum most people know, the heavily barred, hook-jawed green goblins, don't start out that way. Chum enter the rivers as startlingly beautiful silver bullets that rival steelhead in every way. Only a few rivers offer reliable fly fishing for chrome chums like this, and and Kanektok River in western Alaska is one of them. We fished with Alaska West and caught all the chums we could handle and then some, in addition to several other species this incredible river has to offer. Give Alaska West a call at 800-344-3628 for more information, or visit the online:
