SELF-GUIDED (UNGUIDED) AND GUIDED KETCHIKAN FISHING CHARTERS FOR SALMON AND HALIBUT

Chinook Shores’ Alaska Fishing Lodge in Ketchikan makes the most of saltwater fishing for salmon and halibut in the calm waters of Southeast Alaska. Unguided or self-guided fishing in Alaska is truly rewarding and lets you fish on your own schedule, at your own pace.  Unguided fishing in one of our 20′ North River or 21′ Silver Streak rental boats gives you total freedom to fish and sight-see as you please all day long.

We have six 20′ North River and Silver Streak boats for experienced “Bare Boat” anglers.

Our unique approach to guided charter fishing personalizes your Alaska fishing trip to suit your needs. Our fishing boats and private lodge accommodations are exclusive to your group so you lodge and fish with the friends and family that you came with. Ketchikan salmon fishing and Ketchikan halibut fishing can be done the same day on our full day guided charters.

KETCHIKAN SALMON FISHING | KETCHIKAN HALIBUT FISHING

Ketchikan Alaska is known as the “Salmon Capital of the World” and is famous for huge runs of salmon, calm water halibut fishing, and many species of rock fish. You don’t have to go far (15-30 minutes) to get into some truly awesome fishing. Whether you’re unguided fishing in our 20′ North River bare-boats or guided fishing in our 28′ charter boat,  you can enjoy same day combination salmon, halibut and rockfish trips.  Some days the best salmon fishing is just five minutes away from our dock.

FRESH WATER FLY FISHING

There are several rivers and creeks located within boating or driving distance from our fishing lodge. These fresh water systems are great for steelhead,  trout, salmon and black bear viewing depending on what time of year you fish them.  We don’t provide fresh water spinning rods, fly rods or waders but if you bring your own and want to spend a day on the river, we can show you where to go and what to use.
