Fishing for the Big Ones

Salmon Falls Resort sits right in the epicenter for the barn door Halibut. These are the monsters that can weigh up to 1000 pounds. For sports fishing, the record is 495 pounds. To give you a visual, a 200 pound Halibut is wider than a grown man and just as tall. These flat fish get their nickname because they have the size and shape of a barn door. Halibut is an awesome fish for fishing and eating.

Salmon Fishing in Southeast Alaska

Even the salmon here are good sized. King salmon are the largest of the Pacific Salmon. 20 - 30 pounders are average. Over 50 pounds are exciting, but the record is 126 pounds for an Alaskan King Salmon. The local waters sport all five species of salmon. Fish for kings, silvers, red, chum and pink salmon around Ketchikan. This is one reason that Ketchikan is known as the salmon capital of the world. The Inside Passage is narrow and the salmon congregate making them easier targets for sports fishermen with flashers or bait.

Other fish species present include Rockfish such as Snapper and a variety of Cod. The area is also populated with sea bass, which are awesome targets and very good eating. If you are looking for a fishing vacation, the Salmon Falls Resort is the place to try. You will be welcomed and treated to the best fishing in Alaska.
