When you want to experience fishing in the real wilderness, where every cast is an opportunity to do battle with the catch of a lifetime, you choose Alaska. For many, an Alaska fishing trip is a gateway to the fishing they've always dreamed about, where game fish thrive in numbers that go beyond description. Sitka is recognized as the premier Southeast Alaska fishing destination, with some of the best catch rates in the entire state. Your trip to Kingfisher Charters & Lodge will immerse you in the sprawling unspoiled beauty of Alaska, while we introduce you to some of the best fishing you will likely ever experience. Another distinct advantage of choosing Sitka as your Alaskan fishing destination is that you're able to target all of the game fish for which the state is famous. We go fishing for dime-bright, ocean-run Alaska salmon right in the path of their migratory routes, targeting kings throughout the season, and silvers that really get going mid July. Bottom fishing in our Alaska waters is also top-notch, and we target pacific halibut, several species of rockfish, lingcod, and sablefish. Best of all, your fishing adventure will allow you to target all of these species in a single day, and it's routine for us to limit out on salmon and halibut daily. Additionally, Sitka area waters offer access to sablefish (aka black cod) when ocean conditions permit. Sablefish is a deep dwelling bottom fish that is one of the best eating white fish (if you like Chilean sea bass, you'll love sablefish).
