North to Alaska | Gearing up for a Summer of Salmon

North to Alaska | Gearing up for a Summer of Salmon

Heading north to Alaska for the salmon season looked a little bit different for us this year. 

At the end of April, we started the long slow journey of driving our family's boat from Bellingham, Washington to our summer home in Cordova, Alaska.

Each migrating fisherman headed for the harvest has to complete a mandatory two week quarantine for the safety of the state of Alaska. We're grateful to have had fair winds and (mostly) following seas for our fourteen days up the Inside Passage, migrating to our coastal community of Cordova.

Alaska’s fishermen have the opportunity to go to work this season as essential workers, we’re proud to have a job feeding people.

The salmon are on their way home and we’re committed to safely bringing you good fish to eat this summer.

We made it to Alaska at the beginning of May and started right in on the boat projects, working our way through the list, gearing our boat up to be ready to catch the first fish of the summer next week. 

We're looking forward to the harvest and catching beautiful wild fish this summer. On Thursday, May 14th, there’s a twelve hour commercial fishing opener and we’ll be out on the water chasing wild Copper River Sockeye salmon.
