Salmon Fishing Trips
Weighing up to 70-pounds, the Chinook is the king of Alaska and Canada sportfishing. Many of the lodges provide fish care, so you can take home wonderful king, silver, and in some regions, even sockeye salmon to enjoy throughout the year. Some lodges charge extra for the waxed boxes that you'll take your fish home in. A popular alternative is... before you leave home, pack your clothes (and a duffle bag) for the trip in a cooler. Then use the cooler to transport your fish home and the duffle bag for your clothes. Extra charges may apply when your baggage is over a certain weight limit, so be aware of this for your flight home.
