How We Target Togiak King Salmon
We are blessed to have abundant runs of King Salmon on the Togiak, and abundant runs of extremely aggressive king salmon at that! We employ most of the tried and true methods for catching big Alaskan King salmon, including back trolling large diving plugs such as the ZZ Brock ZZ15, Yakima Bait Co. Flat Fish, downstream trolling spinners, casting and retrieving spinners, back bouncing soft beads, bobber dogging soft beads, artificial egg clusters, and traditional suspended float fishing with soft beads.
For the fly angler, Kings can be targeted on both 1 hand and 2 hand rods. Whether stripping large streamers on soft edges, or swinging large flys on a spey rod, the Togiak River provides an excellent arena to target Alaskan King Salmon on the fly. We take pride in diversifying and testing out new ideas/methods as well, as the Togiak provides an almost perfect testing ground.
