Skagway Fishing Charters, Skagway, Alaska

Skagway sits under the mighty mountain peaks that surround the Upper Lynn Canal. Glaciers peer down at the blue-green ocean water, which holds life in such abundance that it stirs the senses to a time forgotten by men, a time when the ocean’s bounty provided both mystery and sustenance.
From the Gold Rush of 1898 to the present day tourism boom, Skagway fishing has gone largely unchanged. Lack of commercial fishing combined with modern day environmental efforts, like raising hatchery salmon for release into the wild, makes Skagway a prime Alaskan destination for the pursuit of fish by anglers longing to tangle with the famed wild Alaskan salmon.
Skagway fishing includes fishing for four of the five Pacific salmon species. Humpies, Chum, Coho and the mighty Chinook or ‘King’ Salmon. Dockside Charters, owned and operated by Captain Greg Jones, provides years of experience fishing these legendary waters combined with professional commitment to ensure that every charter meets the needs of its customer.
Skagway Salmon Fishing Charters begin in the small boat harbor near where the cruise ships dock at the southern end of town. Unlike many other Alaskan fishing destinations, the fish are a VERY short ride from the harbor, often less than 15 minutes away. More time with the lines in the water mean more of a chance to make that catch of a lifetime.
Captain Greg provides all the gear, bait and know-how to make a Skagway Salmon Fishing Charter an experience one does not forget. Captain Greg believes that when anglers pay good money to go on a fishing charter, they want to ‘fish.’ Many an angler has been frustrated with charter captains who do all the fishing themselves and treat the customer like a child who has never held a rod of his own.
With Dockside Charters, the client decides how much or little he or she wants to participate in the fish catching process. You can bait your own hook, or even bring your own favorite gear. You can hook the fish and fight them to the boat. Captain Greg will give you the necessary hints and pointers to make your day a success.
If you are not as savvy with the rod and reel, he will do as much as you want him to do to aid and assist you to make your Skagway salmon fishing charter an unforgettable experience.
Captain Greg also offers a service for shipping your catch to be smoked and sent just about anywhere via mail, so bragging about catching a big Alaskan king can include a fine dinner for family and friends back home.
If catch-and-release is more your style, Captain Greg will handle the fish with care to ensure its continued survival in the wild.
Trophy Kings and halibut are not the only fish that can be caught on Skagway fishing charters. Silver salmon are renowned for their fierce fighting and are considered the hardest fighting of the salmon family pound for pound. From early September until the end of the season and beyond, these fish can be targeted by your Skagway fishing guide and offer a thrill and opportunity unique to the Skagway area.
Chum Salmon of unparalleled size are frequently caught on Skagway fishing charters when they begin their run in mid-August. They lack the glamour and flavor of their salmonid cousins, but a 15 plus pound ‘dog’ fights with the same intensity and offer a challenge for an angler who wants to try something a little different.
Lingcod, Dolly Varden Char, and rockfish are other predators of the deep that your Skagway fishing guide can identify when they end up on the end of your line.
Whatever fishing experience you desire Captain Greg is a Skagway fishing guide who can turn your Alaskan vacation into an angling experience you will never forget. Make your dreams of fishing the heralded waters of the north a reality by spending a day with Dockside Charters.
