Fresh Wild Salmon

Each year the bulk of the fresh wild salmon season begins on or after May1st with Troll King Salmon from Southeast Alaska (Sitka, Juneau and Ketchikan). If the weather cooperates, McCaffrey’s should have a steady supply of these beauties for weeks and months to come.

The bulk of the Sockeye run will start in early summer, followed by Coho which runs later in the summer. Both Sockeye and Coho are expected to have good catch and run all the way through the summer months.

Managing Expectations: Keep in mind that the entire season is based on many openings and closings of individual fishing areas. These current estimates or even openings and closings could change at any time if catches do not meet pre-season forecasts. In other words, the plug could be pulled at any time to protect the sustainability of the species.
