Alaska Sockeye Pictures

Alaska sockeye or red salmon, pound for pound, are the hardest fighting salmon in the world. Fresh from the salt water, these beautiful Alaska Salmon are like silver torpedoes and they offer very consistent and exciting fishing action. Kenai River Sockeye average between 8-12 lbs. Since they swim close to the shore on their journey upriver, sockeye salmon are most commonly caught from the bank.
