Fishing Charters

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook!

Where you go

Saltwater fishing trips are available in all coastal sections of Alaska. Captains generally pursue halibut and salmon, though charters for other species, such as rockfish and salmon shark are also available. Guided river fishing for salmon and trout is available on the Alaska Peninsula and Bristol Bay region, the Kenai peninsula, the Mat-Su valley, and in other scattered locations across the state.

What You Catch

Halibut and salmon is available in salt water almost year round in Alaska, though most charters are limited to the summer months. Salmon availability changes in salt water as fish prepare to head upstream to spawn. King salmon are available in May and June in salt water, and into July in some locations in fresh water.

Red salmon runs are typically in June and July, and Silvers in late July through September. Trout fishing is available from spring to fall, with some restrictions in May and June, as the fish spawn.

What You Eat

Food choices vary from captain to captain, and guide to guide. Many do not provide any food or drinks at all, and others provide complete meals. Fishing lodges often provide complete meal services. You should check with your guide, captain or travel consultant about the specifics of your trip.

What You Bring –

Charters and guides provide all of the tackle and lures and bait that you’ll need for your trip. Some guests may want to bring their own equipment, depending on the situation. You should always prepare for inclement weather, and rain gear and layered clothing is a must. A camera is a great idea, so that you can get photos of the one that didn’t get away!
