Saltwater Fishing

 fishingHalibut Fishing - photo credit Earl Tuttle

Sitka is an angler's paradise! Our proximity to the open ocean provides a steady supply of fish, yet the island and bays create sheltered waters and ideal fishing conditions.  Sitka boasts the highest saltwater sport fishing catch rate for King Salmon in the State.  Book a fishing charter and join an experienced captain on an Alaskan fishing adventure of a lifetime.  Salmon, halibut, lingcod, and rockfish can all be caught on the same day, from the same boat.

For those who enjoy competitive fishing, the annual Sitka Salmon Derby is sure to please.  On Memorial Day Weekend, the derby awards thousands of dollars in cash and prizes to contending fishermen.  A list of charter operators for fishing Sitka's exciting, pristine waters can be found below. 

For a list of fishing regulations, areas, and other detailed fishing information please contact the:
Alaska Department of Fish & Game, 304 Lake Street, Room 103, Sitka, AK 99835.
