Petersburg, Alaska, is a fishing destination. There are many phenomenal spots to spend the day fishing in and around the city and near Island Point Lodge. We want to highlight one fishing area just north of Petersburg, Alaska: the Alaska Inside Passage. It’s a historic pathway that covers 500 miles of coastline shaped by years of glacier formation. It’s a terrific place to see with your own eyes for these reasons.

Rich History

Thousands of years of glacier growth have formed the iconic coastline here. This coastline is home to Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian Alaska Native peoples. You’ll have an opportunity to see their culture in the area, like totem poles. In addition, the Russian settlers’ legacy is still intact with old dome-shaped churches.

Beautiful Nature

You will get a front-row seat to some of the best nature Alaska offers. For starters, The Tongass National Forest, the largest national forest in the United States, covers most of the Inside Passage. There is a lot to see in Tongass National Forest, so don’t overlook it.

Spectacular Fishing

Of course, you will find some of the best fishing in the state along the Inside Passage. Anglers looking to fish in the Inside Passage will mostly find large salmon and halibut, rockfish, lingcod, snapper, sea bass, and salmon sharks. If it’s your first time or fishing along the Inside Passage seems daunting to you, seek out a fishing guide like Petersburg Sport Fishing and Magic Man Charters.
