Sockeye continue to pour into the Situk on every incoming tide. Commercial fishing on Sunday through Tuesday creates a slight slow down in numbers, but there is still plenty of opportunities to catch a limit of nice fish. King populations are still down and any deliberate fishing or retention of any size king on the Situk is illegal at this point. Pink Salmon are starting to show in very low numbers at this point and the Sockeye fishing should remain stellar throughout the month of July.There have also been reports of a couple early Silvers showing up in the commercial nets.

Over 37,000 sockeye over the weir and the river is boiling in certain areas. The confluence of the old and new Situk is stuffed to the rim with Sockeye. Fishing is extremely good also below the weir, where the ocean fresh Sockeye is pouring in on every incoming tide.

The fish at the confluence are starting to show their brilliant red sides and green heads, but they still have all the energy to give a great fight and challenge even the most experienced fisherman to land them. July is shaping up to be a great month for fishing the Situk River.

On the saltwater side of things, the Halibut in the Ocean is really good now, and the Kings in the Bay are still on the bite and running at respectable sizes.
