The June 1st opener of the Skagit River starts off our Salmon Season every year with the return of our "Spring Chinook" or King Salmon. The largest of the 5 salmon species our early summer Chinook are probably one of the most sought after for their fine table fare value. Mid summer in the Pacific Northwest signifies the return of our other 4 Pacific Salmon species as they make their way back to their home rivers to spawn. In late July we start seeing the return of our Sockeye Salmon to many of the Puget Sound Area Rivers. On odd years our Pink Salmon runs return to our area rivers in August. The absolute largest run of the 5 salmon species, on Pink Salmon (Humpies) the sheer numbers and aggressive behavior of these fish are what make them so desirable to anglers. 100 plus fish days are not at all uncommon when fishing for Pinks, with fish averaging 4 to 8 pounds.

At the beginning of September our Silver Salmon begin their return to our local rivers. Silver Salmon (Coho) are one of the hardest fighting and acrobatic of our salmon species. (Our personal favorite table fare fish here at the Koenig household as well) These fish averaging 8 to 12 pounds make for great table fare and the run can last well into January.

October signifies the return of the largest and best known of the salmon species, the King Salmon (Chinook). These monsters average 15 to 25 pounds, and it is not at all uncommon to land fish in the 40 pound range on a daily basis. These great eating and hard fighting salmon last on into November.

November's rains and swelling rivers bring to us pound for pound one of the hardest fighting and aggressive of the salmon species, the Chum Salmon (Dog). These fish take to flies well and 15 to 20 fish days are not at all uncommon.
