Tenakee Springs Fishing Charters

There’s great fishing in many parts of Southeast Alaska, but many prefer the 26-mile Tenakee Inlet for its protected waters and easy access to both fresh and saltwater fishing. (More than a dozen freshwater rivers drain into the Inlet, making it easy to fish for halibut and salmon in the same day.) The sheer number of salmon returning to their spawning streams – 750,000 – is mind-boggling. All five types of Pacific salmon, halibut and steelhead provide a variety of incredible fishing experiences.

You’ll want to book a charter with a local guide who can provide the best equipment and who has detailed knowledge of the waters and where the fish tend to bite. There are just two charter fishing outfits in Tenakee Springs, so book early for the best availability.
