Experience Silver Salmon
David Kalinowski March 08, 2023
Silver salmon, commonly called coho salmon, have a vast northern Pacific range stretching from Hokkaido, Japan, through eastern Russia and Kamchatka, then spanning through the Bering Sea, southeastern Alaska, down the entire BC coast, and all the way south to Monterey Bay, California. Most coho are in the 7-15 pound range, but specimens over 30 pounds have been caught. While they are a favorite for freshwater fly anglers, they are also a popular species to pursue in the salt both with flies and conventional tackle, making them a great target species for anglers of all skill levels irrespective of tackle preferences.
