Why Fish Ketchikan? There are many places in Alaska that offer great fishing. However, Ketchikan is unique in that it offers tremendous variety, in addition to large numbers of fish. There are very few places in the world that provide incredible freshwater and saltwater sport fishing in one location. You can fish salmon, and halibut one day, and then spend the next day fly fishing for salmon or trout in the Misty Fjords National Monument.

Another advantage Ketchikan has over other fishing destinations in Alaska is the fact that we have both inside protected waters, and outside ocean waters. As a result, we can always find a place to fish.

Ketchikan is located in Southern Southeast Alaska. We are just 1 ½ hrs from Seattle, Washington via Alaska Airlines.  Ketchikan recieves four non stop Alaska Airlines flights from Seattle each day.
