Sitka Alaska fishing charters are special opportunities to catch a wide range of hard-fighting Alaska saltwater game fish. These species include halibut, lingcod, multiple kinds of rockfish, silver salmon, king salmon and black cod. Not only are these fish species all unique and great fun to catch, but each is delicious to eat, and the spectrum of species provides a wide range of options for those with a culinary inclination.
Sitka Alaska fishing charters are among the best places in Alaska to intercept salmon species. Because of Sitka’s location, centrally located on the Southeast Panhandle, on the outside coast, Sitka is in prime position to reach pass by salmon stocks whose natal waters are in other rivers in Alaska, as well as Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, Canada. Another benefit of Sitka’s location is that sportfishing anglers don’t have to make a long boat ride to get to open water, which is often the case in many other saltwater ports, particularly in southcentral Alaska.
