Alaska is known for its exceptional sportfishing and the high quality of its bountiful seafood. All Alaska seafood is sustainably raised and harvested - the state constitution ensures it - and for many, fishing is a way of life. Visitors can dabble in this culture by taking a sportfishing trip, including saltwater, freshwater, fly-in, or even ice-fishing packages. Many fishing packages include overnight accommodations at remote wilderness lodges, getting you closer to the best fishing spots for your daily excursions.
Spend the day on a salmon or halibut charter from coastal communities in the Southcentral, Southwest, or Inside Passage regions or catch trout, Dolly Varden, and king salmon in the world-famous Kenai River or other popular rivers and lakes across the state. Professional fishing guides will help you experience the thrill of reeling in a big one and will often coordinate freezing and shipping your catch anywhere in the world, or even prepare if for your dinner that evening. Sportfishing is a great way to experience a rugged Alaska adventure and meet experienced locals in some of Alaska’s best fishing destinations.
