The Steamboat Bay Fishing Club offers luxury Alaska Sportfishing in the Ketchikan area. The lodge sits on the Noyes Island and is accessible by float plane from Ketchikan. One of the pluses for staying with Steamboat Bay Fishing Club is that welcome both novice and veteran fishermen. This is an all-inclusive fishing resort in the heart of the Southeastern Alaska wilderness.

Guests stay in luxury rooms either in the main lodge or in the "Residence." The island is uninhabited except by the lodge's crew and guests. Expect the best such as pillow top mattresses decked out with premium linens and plenty of space. The free Wi-Fi is perfect for sharing your adventure on social media or for checking email. Additional features include mud rooms, sauna, Kayaks, and miles of wilderness trails to hike. They even have a business suite for corporate parties.

The Fish, the Setup and The Adventure

Barn door Halibut, King Salmon, Coho Salmon, big Ling Cod, Big Yellow Eye, and Plenty of Bottom Fish to rock your world. In addition to the outstanding fish, there are plenty of opportunities to drop a pot and bring in the Dungeness Crab. Best of all you are not on one of those go-it-alone trips. The guides here are licensed by the US Coast Guard, and they provide you with the best fishing gear and equipment. The Itinerary is yours to set, and options include crabbing, whale watching, etc. Otherwise, expect a day of fishing for trophy sized Halibut and plenty of King Salmon. At the end of the day, the crew takes care of your catch by processing it and freezing it for your return trip.

Fishing The Waters off of Noyes Island

Alaska is a series of cycles, and when you can take advantage of a cycle that enhances fishing, then you have a spot where guests can fish for trophy fish all day long. That is the situation at Steamboat Bay Fishing Club. This was the site of a cannery, which is another clue to the bounty that awaits you on these waters. There is simply a ton of fish here for guests to enjoy.

The local waters are an end loop of warm water upwelling, which means that the microfauna is constantly in bloom, and that is the start of a fishing cycle that keeps the trophy fish nearby. The small stuff, plankton and zooplankton feed the fry that grow to smolt that then feed the medium fish who become a meal for the trophy fish. That is the cycle that guests of the lodge get to enjoy.
