Fishing Southeast Alaska

Southeast Alaska covers an area about 500 miles in length from the U.S./Canada border just below Prince of Wales Island north to Yakutat and to Cape Suckling. Southeast or the “panhandle” as it is known in Alaska, is noted for its fjords, mountains, maritime climate, old growth spruce and hemlock forests, glaciers, and fishing! Southeast includes over 1,000 islands strung just offshore westward from the mainland. The Tongass National Forest, the icy Glacier Bay National Park  and the Misty Fjords National Monument are just three of the federally designated areas that are found in this area of islands and rugged mountains.

Marine and freshwater sport fishing opportunities abound. Southeast Alaska fishing is world-renowned and sport anglers can stay busy year-round fishing for wild trout, steelhead, all five species of Pacific salmon, halibut, lingcod, rockfish and a variety of other species. Opportunities for both freshwater and saltwater shoreline fishing for salmon exist near most towns and cities.

An average of over 90 inches of rain falls on Southeast Alaska annually. Summer temperatures average 65°F. Waterproof jackets and pants are recommended. Wear several layers of light clothing for warmth. Bug dope should be considered a necessity for any fishing trip to Southeast Alaska. You might want to check the current weather conditions and forecast before you come at the National Weather Service.
