OUTDOORS Capital City Weekly Alaska is widely recognized within sport fishing and travel circles as the primary angling destination for anyone wishing to intercept salmon on fly gear. Each summer Alaska's countless rivers and streams become the center piece of attention as salmon - pinks, sockeye, chum, cohos and kings - return to their natal waters like clockwork to spawn and die, completing an ancient cycle as old as the mountains that cradle their birth waters.

Each spring, the estuaries and river mouths of Southeast Alaska bubble with excitement as hundreds of thousands of salmon fry instinctively begin to swim and migrate downstream towards the salt. Fly-fishers who commit themselves to monitoring the timing of the spring salmon fry drop out can usually expect to enjoy some of the hottest, most blistering fly-fishing that Southeast Alaska has to offer.
