Sport Fish Run Time

When sport fishing Alaska, timing and location are everything. You must be where and when the fish are to catch them, and our Pacific salmon are often where and when you are not! We can help you narrow the odds, though we offer no guarantee. Rockfish and halibut are just a few of the monsters you may due battle with in and around the Seward waters.

Seward, Alaska

Known as, "Alaska's Favorite Seaside Town," Seward is a beautiful coastal city whose waters are abundant with trophy fish.

It is located at the head of Resurrection Bay, between the Kenai Fjords National Park and the west entrance of Prince William Sound. The area's currents and ocean floor structure create a convergence of nutrient-rich water and impressive habitat for all species of fish and wildlife.
