The Best in
Alaska Salmon and Halibut Fishing
One of the best things about Prince William Sound is the
fishing! There is nothing like Alaska fishing and Valdez fishing is among the finest in
Alaska. Several derbies are sponsored by Valdez and awards total over $65,000 in prizes.
If you want a great Alaskan fishing experience, fish Valdez Alaska.
Salmon and halibut fishing are
both excellent in Prince William Sound. Records continue to be set by Valdez fishing
charters. Barn door size halibut, while rare, are a definite possibility. The popularity
of halibut fishing has grown in recent years and continues to be a stable attraction all
summer long. Halibut charters offer daylong trips into the Sound for an unforgettable
experience. The halibut are caught as early as May and as late as September, although some
die-hards fish all year long.
Salmon fishing season starts in
early July with the pink salmon (humpback) and continues through September with the Silver
Salmon. Pinks are just plain fun to catch. They range in weight from 5 to 10 pounds.
Silver salmon (coho) are the most favored by the locals and are much bigger than the
pinks, ranging from 10 to 20 pounds. The best thing about the salmon fishing in Alaska is
everyone comes back with something! Salmon Charters are only half a day the limit
of 6 fish comes quickly.
