Sportfishing for Salmon or Halibut
Ketchikan is called the Salmon Capital of the World, and for good reason: Five different species of salmon swim the waters here. Anglers shouldn’t miss the chance for a sportfishing excursion to hook a wild salmon—or another of Alaska’s iconic game fish, including halibut, cod or rockfish. Local fishermen offer small boat charters daily, and most can arrange to have your fresh catch smoked and processed to be sent back home.
