Fishing off the Kenai

SOUTHEAST ALASKA or the "Inside Passage" is famous for saltwater fishing, and the freshwater possibilities are equally impressive. A myriad of full service wilderness lodges and charter boat services are available. Ketchikan, Wrangell, Sitka, Petersburg, Haines, Skagway and Juneau are the key gateway cities to this wild coastal region.

SOUTHCENTRAL ALASKA is the state's most populous region. This area has an excellent road system for travel by camper or motorhome. The famous Kenai Peninsula is also in this region, home of the world's largest King salmon plus giant Pacific halibut. Fly-out fishing in the Alaska Range offers a remote wilderness setting and classic freshwater fishing conditions.

ARCTIC AND INTERIOR ALASKA from Fairbanks north to the Brooks Range (including the Gates of the Arctic National Monument) provides a variety of top-flight fishing action. Fishing for salmon on their spawning migrations, superb waters for trophy-size Northern pike, lake trout and Arctic char is of special interest to many freshwater anglers. This region is home to Alaska's most unique trophy sport with record sheefish, often called the "Tarpon of the North".

SOUTHWEST ALASKA is a vast remote wilderness region including Kodiak Island and the Aleutians, and the Alaska Peninsula, where you'll find the renowned Bristol Bay and Lake Iliamna regions. A variety of full service lodges, camps and river float operations host avid anglers in the state's most "fish-concentrated" waters. This vast wilderness landscape is a perfect setting for the world's most numerous salmon runs, and the opportunities for seeing wildlife such as moose, brown bears and caribou are unparalleled.
