I have fished all over Alaska and have fished at Chinook Shores many times. Sometimes with my kids and wife, other times just a group of guys. Chinook Shores is the best Alaska fishing area I’ve ever been to. Jeff is fishing the area every day and know where the fish are and what is catching them at that part of the season. Best part? You can catch huge king salmon right in front of the lodge. No running for 2 hours to the big fish grounds. One year we caught our biggest fish of the year not more than 100 yards from the dock!

For those that are prone to getting seasick this is the place to go! Fish the calm waters and secluded bays of the Ketchikan area. No big rollers, no long hauls to the fishing grounds, and if the wind picks up you just move to a different side of one of the small islands and continue your day of catching fish.

Are you looking for variety? Kings, silvers, halibut, bottom fish, crabbing, shrimping are all available.

Not only are there tons of fish to catch but the area surrounding Chinook Shores has some of the prettiest views in the world. Whales, otters, and the biggest concentration of Bald Eagles anywhere. We have a picture my son took off the deck of our cabin/house. There are 17 bald eagles in one tree not 50 feet from the deck. To see them swoop down to the beach below our deck and fight over a salmon carcass is a sight I will never forget.

My last comment will be about gear. Jeff takes pride in having his rods, reels, line, nets, boats/motors all in great shape. I go there to fish, and to be successful. I like knowing that when I hit the water all the gear is going to work and the rest is up to me.

So what’s holding you up? Book your trip to Chinook Shores now. Ketchikan is only a 2 hour flight from Seattle and there are many flights per day on Alaska Air.

BTW, I am not an employee or family member of Chinook Shores. Just an avid fisherman who has fished all over Alaska and have never been treated better by a lodge owner, caught more fish, and had the ease of travel like I have had with Chinook Shores. Call Jeff today and be ready for your trip of a lifetime.
