The most popular fish species you can target are Chinook Salmon, Halibut, and Lingcod. Top fishing techniques include Equipo Ligero, Troleo, and Pesca De Fondo. Offshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Nestled among a maze of bays and islands, Ketchikan is a popular stop for coastal cruises and nature lovers looking to explore Alaska’s wilderness. These winding waters are also a favorite haunt of Salmon and Halibut fishers from around the world. Ketchikan fishing charters can get you on an awesome range of game fish. There are five species of Salmon alone, and plenty of other hard-fighting fish lurking in the cold, secluded depths.
 
King (Chinook) Salmon is the most important species in Ketchikan, but you can also catch Silver (Coho), Sockeye, Chum, and Pink Salmon. If you time your visit right, you even stand a chance of bagging them all in one trip. Throw in some record Halibut, a ton of tasty Lingcod and Rockfish, and some awesome freshwater fisheries to top if all off, and you get some of the most productive fishing in the entire state! Ketchikan fishing really is outstanding, but you need someone who knows what they’re doing to get the most out of the area.

Fishing Spots

There really is no bad place to fish in these secluded northern waters. The best Ketchikan fishing charters will always have their hidden honey holes, but here are a few of our top spots, just to give you a feel for the place.
 

Carroll Inlet

This sheltered waterway is just 15 miles from town and is a popular spot for “short range” fishing trips. The area is excellent for Salmon fishing, with all five species present in high season.
 

Thorne Arm

Just a short hop past Carroll Inlet, Thorne Arm is a protected bay where big fish can be caught in any weather. The Salmon bite may not be as good, but the Halibut and Rockfish more than make up for it.
 

Clarence Strait

The waters near Prince of Wales Island are more exposed and can get pretty rough in bad weather. The area’s huge bait stock makes it more than worth the visit on a calm day, though, with Halibut, Salmon, Rockfish, Crab, and Shrimp all present here.
 

Boca de Quadra

Hidden away on the fringes of the Misty Fjords National Monument, this is about as good as you can get. The area’s staggering beauty is easily matched by its unbelievable fishing, with all five Salmon species plus monster Halibut, tasty Rockfish, and plenty of Crab and Shrimp.
 

Tongass National Forest

You don’t need to travel far to enjoy exciting Ketchikan fishing excursions. This maze of lakes and creeks offers amazing Salmon, Trout, and Dolly Varden fishing within walking distance of town. Make sure you take a guide, though, you don’t want to get lost out here!

Fishing Seasons

Of course, it’s no good coming all this way just to find the fish you’re after are out of town. You can catch species like King Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, and Rockfish almost year-round in Alaska, but most charters don’t start running until May. The Ketchikan fishing season runs through the summer, usually ending at the start of October. 
 
Ketchikan Halibut fishing is best from June until August, and Rockfish are also at their best this time of year. Different Salmon peak at different times over the summer. Chinook Salmon arrive first and Cohos turn up last. If you want a chance at landing them all, July is the best month to try. The rivers are at their best in the fall when the spawning runs are in full swing.

Fishing Techniques

Most Ketchikan fishing charters will focus on either Salmon, Halibut, or freshwater fish. These are the top local gamefish and guides have been perfecting their techniques for generations.
 
Salmon can be caught by trolling or fly fishing. Big, bright flies attract these wide-eyed hunters, while live Herring is best for trolling. Salmon usually lurk in the depths, so you’ll need downriggers to get to them. Otherwise, you can try the Alaskan sensation which is mooching. Drift plug cut herring baits over schools of fish and wait for the rod to start twitching. You may not cover as much ground as you would trolling, but you’ll get just as many fish!
 
If you’re after Halibut, your best bet is to anchor up and drop some chum down as you do so. Halibut hunt largely by scent, so fillets of Herring or Salmon belly make the best baits. To bring in monster Halibut, many charter captains use whole Salmon heads as bait. You won’t get as many bites this way, but when you do, the fish are huge!
 
The rivers and streams around town will give you some of the best fly fishing Ketchikan has to offer. Cutthroat Trout can be caught around here in big numbers, as can Dolly Varden, Salmon, and more. Most guides head out on foot to get you to the best spots, with a range of rods and a whole box of brightly-colored flies to tackle this mixed bag of gamefish.

Need to Know

You need a fishing license for both freshwater and saltwater fishing, which are not normally included on local fishing charters. Chinook Salmon require an extra stamp which is well worth buying even if they’re not your focus. This is one of the best Salmon fisheries in the country, and it would be a shame to throw back a 50 pound King just because you didn’t buy a stamp.
 
A word of caution for solo adventurers: The waters around Ketchikan are highly tidal, and can be dangerous if you don’t plan accordingly. Our advice is to always fish with someone who knows the area to avoid getting trapped by rising tides.

Enero
Average highs of 40 degrees and 15 inches of rain and snow put many anglers off in January. There are some big King Salmon if you’re willing to tough it out, though.
Febrero

Halibut come into season in February, if you can find a boat to get to them. Otherwise you can head to the rivers for a variety of fly fishing favorites.

Marzo

There is a consistent bite of Dolly Varden, King Salmon, Rockfish, Halibut, and Lingcod in March, meaning plenty of big battles and some tasty fish to take home for dinner.

Abril

The main charter season still hasn’t started, but that just means even more water for you to enjoy. Target Halibut, King Salmon, Rockfish, and the area's other permanent residents.

Mayo

The Ketchikan King Salmon Derby has been kicking off the summer fishing season for over 70 years, and still draws competitive anglers to town for three weekends of great fishing.

Junio

The Ketchikan King Salmon Derby is still going strong in June, giving you the chance to be crowned King of Kings and scoop up some great prizes alongside the huge fish.

Julio
Every species of Salmon is on fire in July. Kings tail off towards the end of the month, but if you’re after an IGFA Salmon Fantasy Slam, this is one of the best times and places to try.
Agosto
The Blueberry Arts Festival has been running for over 40 years, bringing together local artists, craftsmen, and fun-lovers of all ages. If you’re in town in August, you have to check it out!
Septiembre
September is one of the best months for Silver Salmon in Ketchikan, and there are still plenty of Kings around, too. It’s also the tail end of Halibut high season, making it a great time to visit.
Octubre
Most of the summer’s Salmon have made their long journey upriver by October. Silver Salmon are the exception, and can still be caught this time of year, as can the resident Kings.
Noviembre
Ketchikan’s charter season starts to shut down in November, but you can still find a few boats willing to take you out in search of Halibut, Rockfish, Lingcod, and King Salmon.
Diciembre
Can’t decide what to cook this Christmas? How about a nice, fresh Salmon? These are some of the tastiest, most expensive fish around, and are more than big enough to feed the family.

We love to fish and couldn’t leave Alaska without having tried to catch something. We knew with the short amount of time we had on our cruise stop and it being the end of the season our chances were not real good. Anthony took us to a few areas until we found two big ones. Had a blast, crew very experienced and knowledgeable, and even took the time to let us see some whales nearby. Just wished we could have booked the whole day. Definitely hope to fish with them again.

Captain Joey and his assistant, Bill, couldn’t have been more accommodating and professional. They were friendly and we enjoyed conversations with them. He knew the area and where the best fishing would be as well as what species we could expect. The equipment was top notch. Broken hand not withstanding he jumped right in to help. Best sea fishing trip ever! Thanks for the experience.

Wonderful family experience with friendly and knowledgeable Captain Anthony and his First Mate Star. We caught a boatload of salmon and had an experience my family will never forget. We had never been fishing in the ocean, but First Mate Star whipped us into fishing shape quickly, which yielded an approximate 20 salmon hall. The Best family highly recommends this Captain and crew!

My wife and I had no idea what we we had in store. Weather was beautiful and captain Ryan showed patience enough to enable us to put some fish in the cooler. Personality plus as Ryan gave us an understanding on both our level of interest.

Captain Ted met us at cruise ship dock and we were fishing within 30 minutes. He was very knowledgeable and worked hard to get us on some fish. The boat and equipment were top notch. He was able to maximize our time on the water fishing and still returned us back to the cruise ship on time. I highly recommend Alaska Catch Fishing.

The boat was very nice for the 5 of us. Fished with 5 poles in the water all the time for Coho, had 4 on at the same time got 3 in the boat! What a show that was! Fished late Sept at the end of the run, didn't expect a lot but she kept us on fish all day. Great Captain will do it again next year.
