Pink season arrives for sport fishermen

Posted: Tuesday, July 9, 2019 9:00 am

KODIAK — I’m delighted to report a momentous weekend. My wife and I visited a favorite beach and connected with our first pink salmon! They’re few and scattered now but with each passing day more and more will be converging along our beaches. By the end of the month, there will be hordes almost anywhere you go near a river.

What a great way to move into the heart of summer and lazy days on the shore. With the run extending for roughly the next two months, it promises lots of fishing and picnics with family and friends. Mix a few searun Dolly Varden with the pinks, and it’s fishing to remember.
