Fall Fishing in Alaska: Cool Air and Abundant Fish

Although Alaska’s summer heat rarely becomes intolerable, the cooler fall weather leads to even more comfort. As we mentioned, there are far fewer gnats and mosquitoes and a noticeable decrease in tourist activity. So, as much as we value all the other outdoor activities found in our great state, many of our angling guests have one thing in mind: fishing on tranquil waters without a care in the world. Plus, with the aid of our expert guides, all you’ll have to do is focus on reeling in the big ones!

Alaska Guided Fishing Trips: Late-Season Targets

Thanks to the pristine waters surrounding Admiralty Island, the area near Angoon, Alaska, offers angling enthusiasts an excellent opportunity to land the catch of a lifetime. For instance, silver salmon grow at an incredible rate towards the end of their lifespan, meaning the same fish that weigh six pounds during the summer can reach almost 20 pounds by fall! For king salmon, one of the most highly-sought gamefish, it’s not uncommon to pull up a few while targeting other species. Finally, halibut, lingcod, and rockfish will be in high concentrations for those heading out on saltwater missions. Either way you look at it, Alaska-guided fishing trips in fall are massively underrated.
