Alaska King Salmon Fishing • June 2022


They’re called kings for a reason. The biggest of the salmon species, king salmon, also known as the mighty Chinooks, are a favorite catch at Waterfall Resort. Enter our King of Kings Salmon Tournament and compete for cash prizes, Waterfall Resort fishing trips, top-brand gear, and a new Ford F-150 truck.

Wild Alaska king salmon fishing peaks in June when the kings are running. To add to your fishing adventure, check out our King Salmon Jackpot Challenge or bring the family over Father’s Day.
