Our last trip was this past August. The first day we each hit the limit of 6 silver salmon. Early summer is better for king salmon and silvers show up more in late summer. The limits for each can change from year to year. The second and third days we targeted halibut, caught this years limit of 1 each day and then picked up some more salmon and rockfish. That is pretty typical of our fishing trips there, lots of fish, fantastic food, and a beautiful place to stay. Talon Lodge and Spa,
If you are looking to go to Southeast Alaska, and it is you first time, a cruise ship is probably the best way to see it. If you are looking to go fishing, or an Alaska adventure, I believe Sitka is the place.
