Chum Salmon

The Tiger Striped Salmon

Chum Salmon are the underdog of all the five Pacific Salmon. They begin their return in Late June and run through the end of July on the Togiak. They are a wonderful bi-catch fish and they are a ton of fun on twitchin Jigs, weighted purple clouser fly’s, and occasionally will hit top water as well.

How We Target Togiak Chum Salmon

Peaking slightly later than the King Salmon, the chum salmon on the togiak provide a wonderful afternoon target for anglers. These vibrantly colored fish are often very willing to play on stripped or swung flies, marabou jigs, and even large diving plugs generally used for king salmon.
