Alaska Halibut Fishing Ketchikan

Alaska Wilderness Charters and Guiding offers full service Alaskan fishing adventures with meals and lodging included. We offer 1 to 5 day trips.On our full day Alaska salmon fishing trips,depending on the time of the year, you may fish for king salmon; silver salmon; pink salmon; chum salmon; halibut; ling cod; red snapper; and other varieties of cod. Limits of salmon and halibut are standard each day!

What sets us apart from other fishing lodges in Ketchikan, as well as other locations in Alaska is that, we have fast custom built boats and are willing to go to the very best Alaska salmon and halibut fishing grounds each day. Over 90% of the charter boats in Ketchikan will only fish within a few miles of town. Not us!! We take pride in taking you away from the crowds and out to the very best fishing Alaska has to offer. Our catches of Alaska salmon and halibut are always among the top at the dock everyday!See for yourself! With over 23 years of guiding experience in the area you can rest assured you will not be disappointed. I will admit, I'm of a competitive nature, and will do my very best to see that your catch is something to be proud of when retiring to the dock each day!

While salmon fishing in Ketchikan, you will get the chance to see humpback whales feeding on baitfish along with sea lions,seals and killer whales The Ketchikan area is also known for its rainforest and beautiful snowcapped mountains which feed the hundreds of salmon spawning rivers that lace the area.

Great Alaska salmon fishing is all about location location, location,! With so many rivers in the area our saltwater salmon fishing stays consistent each year, versus many other Alaska lodges that depend upon the strength of only a few rivers and many times only one river for their fishery. During years of poor salmon returns, these lodges have very few salmon fishing options for their clients. We are catching salmon in the saltwater that are heading to more than 100 different river systems, ensuring a strong fishery each year.Ketchikan salmon fishing can not be beat.

By having large custom built boats, we are able to run out to the areas that congregate large schools of feeding salmon before they migrate to the many different rivers to spawn. Along with the salmon, migration brings huge halibut! On a daily basis we are catching Alaska halibut over 50 pounds. Alaska halibut over 100 pounds are caught each week with the largest being between 200-300 pounds.To have large catches of salmon and halibut consistently, we get away from town and the crowds, often traveling up to 1.5 hours. The boat ride is well worth it! The only other fishermen you will see will be our fleet! Upon arriving to the fishing grounds, we will be able to catch salmon, halibut and cod, all in the same area due to the fertile grounds and the lack of fishing pressure.

We can accommodate groups larger than six at one of our fine sister lodges, Cedars Lodge or Clover Pass Resort.

While in Alaska on your cruise, depending on availability, we also offer 1/2 day Ketchikan salmon fishing charters. Guests may book daily excursions in groups of 6; Simply step off the cruise ship and we'll pick you up. We work with Princess, Norwegian, Holland America, Celebrity & Alaskan Cruise lines on a regular basis. All transportation, equipment & refreshments provided.
