Half-Day Salmon Fishing Tour from Ketchikan
USD 199.00

Go salmon-fishing from Ketchikan for a prime fishing experience while visiting Alaska. Your fishing guide provides instruction and all necessary fishing gear for your morning or afternoon tour. Depending on the time of year of your visit, you might catch king salmon, pink salmon, or coho salmon in what is reputed to be one of the world's best fishing grounds. Includes guide, use of fishing gear, and pickup and drop-off at the Ketchikan cruise ship port or your hotel.

What to Expect

The waters surrounding Ketchikan are one of the best fishing grounds in the world with record catches of Salmon. Ketchikan from the beginning has always been a fishing town earning the title in the early 1900's as "The Salmon Capitol of the World" today Ketchikan is better known as "The Sportfishing Capitol of the World" due to the high number of charter boats and fishing lodges in the area.

May & June we fish for King Salmon which are also known as Chinook Salmon, Black Mouth Salmon or Spring Salmon. King Salmon are highly prized for their size, fighting spirit and delectable taste and texture. In the Ketchikan area King Salmon run an average size of about 20 pounds, trophy size 40 plus pounds.

July & August we fish for Chum & Pink Salmon. Both species are quite plentiful and have mild flavored pink meat which is quite good for smoking. Pink Salmon average size is 4 to 8 pounds. Chum Salmon average size is 8 to 12 pounds.

August & September we fish for Silver Salmon also known as Coho Salmon. Silver Salmon are known for being acrobatic jumpers, pound for pound one of the best fighting fish available. Silvers have bright red meat with strong flavor and high oil content. Average size 8 to 12 pounds. Trophy Size 15 plus pounds.

Great Day Catching Salmon

We came off a cruise ship and did the half day excursion. Captain Al put us on some Pink Salmon early and we also caught a Silver! Later in the day, we landed a Sockeye and a King! All in all, a great fishing adventure!...More
