Chum Salmon Fishing

All Star Fishing Charters are Salmon fishing specialists.

Chum salmon are generally considered to have the lowest flesh quality of the five Pacific salmon species. Commercial and sport fisheries operating in marine water frequently catch chum salmon that are in ocean bright condition. These fish are the highest quality chum salmon and are the best choice for table fare.
Many recreational fishing locations for chum salmon are in freshwater or in saltwater near the mouths of spawning streams, which may be a reason why many sport caught chum are not of the same quality as ocean fish. Chum salmon mature very rapidly, and the fish in these locations are usually close to spawning and their table quality has substantially deteriorated. Because of this, smoke curing and kippering are often a preferred choice for preparing sport caught chum salmon. However, for the best table quality, ocean bright chum should be obtained for both cooking fresh or smoke curing.
