Here’s a tip on wade fishing for silver salmon in Alaska. When fishing the Egegik River with us at Becharof Lodge, the key to consistently catching more silver salmon lies in not wading too deep. The deeper you wade, the more fish you potentially spook. Many of the coho salmon migrating up the Egegik River are moving and holding close to shore, meaning you don’t have to wade very deep–if at all–in order to reach fish.
