I will be in Ketchikan for the day during the first week of August and I'd like to see the salmon swimming upstream and maybe even see bears fishing (I know, it's nature, no guarantees). Is there a good spot in town to see the salmon that is walking distance (or city bus) from the cruise dock? I thought I'd read there was a salmon ladder, but I don't know if it's in town.
Does anyone have a link to a detailed city map so I can figure out where things are? Can you walk to Saxman totem poles & Rotary beach from the dock?
