Go Fishing

Get hooked on Pacific halibut and salmon fishing. Full- and half-day fishing charters make reeling in a big one very convenient. Purchase a fishing license from the boat captain or at major retail outlets and don’t worry about packing a rod because boats are loaded with all the necessary supplies. Take off to Gastineau Channel with dreams of a freezer stocked with salmon and halibut and return to shore with a packed cooler. Drop the fish off at one of the area’s processers so they can take care of it and even ship it to its final destination.

Peterson Creek, Windfall Lake and more of the area’s rivers and streams also offer great fishing opportunities. Local companies can take visitors on guided fly-fishing trips in a skiff or on shore. Some tour companies will even fly travelers to remote rivers and lakes for a truly off-the-beaten-path angling experience.
