It may seem premature, but early booking for an Alaska fishing trip will ensure you get the dates you want and allows you to plan well in advance. For one thing, it’s not extremely common for most people to travel to Petersburg, Alaska, so getting the most out of your trip is a high priority. So while we’re confident you’ll want to come back, it may be at least a year or two before you can return. Furthermore, the holiday season is knocking at the door, so if you’re considering giving the gift of an Alaska fishing trip, you should begin your research as soon as possible. Whether you’re an avid angler or new to the sport, Island Point Lodge welcomes you to join us on a rewarding fishing adventure. 

Alaska Fishing Trip: What You Need to Know

Whether you want to chase salmon or halibut, you’ll be spending much of your time in the Inside Passage, one of Alaska’s most productive fisheries. From the comfort of your cabin, you can map out your day before a full hot breakfast, and we’ll provide you with coffee, tea, Tang, and lemonade. Be sure to let us know if you have any dietary restrictions, and we’ll do everything we can to accommodate your needs. We also serve lunch and dinner, and there is a small luncheon buffet table available for those who make their way back to the lodge before supper. 

The Alaska Fishing Season

The abundance of fish supplied by the Inside Passage plays a pivotal role in making Island Point Lodge the preferred destination for an Alaskan fishing trip. Starting in late-May, we begin the Alaskan fishing season by trolling for king salmon and seeking out halibut. By the end of June, the sockeye will start making their way into the estuary and rivers, followed shortly by coho, pink, and chum before the king salmon run concludes at the end of August. Halibut fishing remains excellent from June through September.
