Experience an all-inclusive Alaska salmon fishing adventure with expert, local guides, all for just $175!*
Come fishing with Chum Fun Salmon Charters, Juneau's only shoreside fishing adventure! Here in Juneau, we do a lot of our fishing from the docks and shorelines, not from boats. That's why we offer a local, hands-on fishing experience where our guests get to cast and reel instead of sitting in a boat without touching their rods!
Let us get you outfitted with the best gear including rods, reels, tackle, rain gear (rain tops, rain bottoms, and rainboots), and an Alaska fishing license if you need one. Our tour is three and a half hours and all-inclusive, beginning with a trip to the Macauley Salmon Hatchery where our guests will learn about the life cycles of a salmon, see the saltwater aquarium and explore the saltwater touch tanks. Then we will put our gear and knowledge to use and begin fishing at one of the best shoreside fishing locations around! All transportation is provided. In no time, you will be catching your own wild Alaska salmon! You may also see seals, sea lions, and eagles.
The tour is perfect for anyone from 7 to 87 years old, including individuals, groups, and families with kids, and it leaves you with plenty of time to reel in your catch and still enjoy everything that Juneau has to offer. Chum Fun Salmon Charters has local processors that will vacuum pack and ship salmon back home for our guests.

Meet The Owners
Friendly, local guides Paul and Michelle own Chum Fun and Paul will be your fishing guides. Paul is a retired Bering Sea Crab fisherman. After 20 breathtaking and dangerous years at sea, he hung up his rain gear but he still loves to catch fish in the waters of Alaska. That's why he and his wife Michelle decided to open Chum Fun Salmon Charters! Michelle is of Athabascan and Russian Aleut and Alaska Native heritage. Alaska born and raised, both Paul and Michelle's families have lived in Juneau for over 124 years. Chum Fun Salmon Charters is owned and operated by an Alaskan family with a rich tradition of living sustainably in the far north and catching the world's best salmon!
