I have fished Ketchikan a half dozen times, and plan to again this coming May. I've caught several halibut, silver salmon, pink salmon, king salmon, cod, ling cod, rock fish, sharks, skates, and arrowtooth flounder. I fish with a local fella named Bruce Johnstone, who has a charter service, and highly recommend him. I have fished there enough that I feel I could get on fish myself if I had a boat, especially the halibut...downriggers seem to be a must when trolling for the salmon. One thing about fishing Ketchikan is you don't have to go far to find fish.
