Reel in a Big Fish

For visitors with an Alaska wish list that includes catching as many fish as they can legally hook, Valdez is the place to go, with plenty of ocean and freshwater fishing options. Reel in enough fish to fill a freezer with halibut, salmon, rockfish, trout, grayling and more.

Prince William Sound, open year-round to fishermen, is a premier fishing destination. Drop a line from shore or charter a boat to reach deeper seas. The rivers, streams and lakes around are also easily accessible and yield beautiful rainbow trout, Dolly Varden and more.

Fishing licenses can be purchased online or at many of the local convenience stores. Charters and other outfitters will rent everything visitors need so don’t worry about packing a thing. Check the fishing report and get on the water!
