New ADF&G Videos Show How to Fish for Coho Salmon

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Sport Fish, recently produced two educational videos, How to Fish for Delta Clearwater River Coho Salmon and Slip Bobber Fishing for Coho Salmon.

These informative videos explore two different techniques for fishing coho (silver) salmon. How to Fish for Delta Clearwater River Coho Salmon shows the use of single-hook artificial lure or fly and was filmed on the Delta Clearwater River near Delta Junction. Slip Bobber Fishing for Coho Salmon outlines the use of a slip bobber and was filmed on Campbell Creek in Anchorage.

The videos will most benefit those who have never, or rarely, gone fishing for coho salmon, however, seasoned anglers may also learn a new trick or two.

Get started on becoming a coho salmon angler today by watching the videos at:
