The best ports for fishing in Alaska are:

  1. Ketchikan: Ketchikan is the best port in Alaska for salmon fishing. You can also try crab fishing here or visit the Silverking Lodge.
  2. Sitka: Sitka has far fewer cruise itinerary port calls than Ketchikan, so fishing is easier here.
  3. Icy Strait: Icy Strait has excellent stream fishing, but no offshore fishing options.
  4. Juneau: Juneau does have some fishing tours, but restrictions have limited sport fishing lately in order to maintain salmon populations.
