We are happy to offer affordable Alaska fishing trips. Ketchikan is the epicenter of Alaska salmon fishing. In June, July, August and September hundreds of thousands of salmon and halibut travel the waters around Ketchikan on their annual migration. We are a small family owned and operated business, located a short, 90 minute flight from Seattle.
