Cast a Line

From freshwater salmon and trout fishing to saltwater charters, anglers can be confident they’ll be able to catch the fish they’ve been dreaming of in Cordova. Along the road system in Cordova, there are multiple places to stop and cast a line. Fish Clear Creek, Ibeck Creek and the Eyak River for the chance to catch sockeye salmon, silver salmon, rainbow trout and Dolly Varden.

For a chance to reel in an ocean fish, like halibut or silver salmon and sockeye salmon that have not swam upstream yet to spawn, book an ocean fishing charter. The waters of Orca Inlet, Simpson Bay and Sheep Bay offer the opportunity to catch halibut, rockfish, lingcod and more. Charters leave from Cordova’s small-boat harbor and return with boats full of fish for travelers to take home. Operators can provide a convenient place to process the catch or even take care of it for their guests.
