Intro to Sockeye Salmon Fishing

(Anchorage) - Are you new to salmon fishing and want to learn how to target sockeye salmon? If so, join Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) staff at the William Jack Hernandez Sport Fish Hatchery (WJHSFH) on Wednesday, June 12, 2019, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for a beginner sockeye salmon fishing seminar! This seminar will be held in the WJHSFH conference room, located at 941 North Reeve Boulevard, Anchorage.

This is a free event for all angler levels who are interested in learning basic techniques to fish for sockeye salmon. This course will specifically cover information that will help brand new anglers feel comfortable wetting a line for sockeye salmon. ADF&G staff will also be available to discuss sockeye salmon fishing regulations for Southcentral Alaska.

Advanced registration is required and space is limited, so sign up early! To register, please visit the Hunting and Fishing Forum webpage

For those anglers who are interested in fishing but aren’t quite ready to commit to the required fishing equipment, the ADF&G office in Anchorage and Palmer offer a free Rod Loaner Program throughout the year. For more information, please contact the Anchorage Sport Fish Information Center at (907) 267-2218.
