Summer is arguably the best time for Alaska trout fishing. The days are longer, the weather is more predictable, and most importantly, the fish don’t seem to let up.

And many of these lucky anglers choose to venture into Downtown Juneau, visit the University of Alaska Southeast, or stroll around the airport for dinner and drinks before starting the journey back home, wherever that may be. Alaska Airlines is the primary airline that serves Southeast Alaska, so you’ll likely connect through Seattle up to Juneau before hopping aboard a seaplane en route to Angoon, Alaska. Depending on how much downtime you have before departure, we highly recommend [...]
