Fishing Salmon Fishing
Protected from Pacific swells with snowy peaks on all sides, the calm passages surrounding Sonora Resort offer a West Coast fishing experience that is unparalleled. It’s not uncommon to catch glimpses of Bald eagles and Black bears while out to hook a chinook salmon.
With experienced guides, sophisticated gear, and a fleet of Grady-White fishing vessels*, we provide everything you need for a successful outing. Head out as a twosome or gather a group of up to six in one vessel. Don’t worry if you’re a first-timer, we’ll show you the ropes, and the reels.
All five of the main Pacific salmon varieties swim the waters around Sonora including Chinook, Pink, Sockeye, Coho and Chum. While fishing opportunities change throughout the months, it’s not uncommon to catch different species of salmon in one day at certain times of the season.
For those looking to extend their stay and angling opportunities, be sure to ask us about our Guided Salmon Fishing Package.
