Charter Fishing

Your Juneau Adventures fishing trip will be the thrill of a life time! Picture hooking into a trophy King, a tail-dancing Silver or a feisty chum salmon. Imagine the excitement of hooking doubles while enjoying the magnificent views of the inside waterways surrounding Juneau. Your fishing trip will often be enhanced by the appearance of Humpback Whales, sea lions, eagles and occasionally Orcas.

We use electric downriggers to troll for salmon and usually (depending on the tide) drift for halibut and rockfish. The timing of your trip determines our quarry. In May, we see huge numbers of spawning King Salmon (Chinook), the run peaks in June and we start to see the chum salmon and pinks appear. The Silver Salmon (Coho) begin to show up in late June, peak in August, and are still caught in September. Feeder Kings are caught all summer long and bottom fishing for halibut and rockfish is good from June 15th until late summer.

Depending on your preference, the length of your trip, the weather, the tides and, most importantly, where the fish are, we can travel to any number of fishing spots. We cruise the waters of Lynn Canal, Chatham Strait, Icy Straight and Stephens Passage. There is no shortage of beautiful areas with plenty of salmon and halibut within minutes of Auke Bay and downtown Juneau.
