Juneau Shore fishing August to September
If you are an independent group, your day will begin at the base of the Mount Roberts Tram. From there, our guides will be picking you up in our van and drive you to our gear shack at 2571 Channel Drive. If you are traveling with Princess Cruises, we will pick you up at the designated spot as directed by Princess, holding a sign that says “Juneau Shoreside Fishing 560.” Everyone must check-in at the office and pick-up a $25 Alaska fishing license if they do not have one already, CASH ONLY. As a licensed vendor, we can provide you with an Alaska fishing license at our office. Please note that there is no ATM at our location. Once everyone is checked-in, we will outfit you with everything you need for your fishing adventure, including rod, reel, and rain gear (rain tops, rain bottoms, and rain boots).
Our first stop will be to the Macaulay Salmon Hatchery to take a tour and learn about the lifecycle of Alaska Salmon. The Macaulay tour is one of the highlights of our trip, including touch tanks that allow kids and parents alike to have close encounters with Juneau’s marine life. After the tour, we will walk down to the dock and fish right at the mouth of the river. Our guides will provide training on how to reel, cast, and set a hook. Then it is up to you to land a gorgeous, Alaska salmon! You have two options. Either you can catch and release or get your fish professionally cleaned, packed, and shipped home through one of our local processing partners. Feel free to ask our guides for their favorite salmon recipes on the van ride back to downtown Juneau!
*This price does not include a $25 Alaska fishing license, which you will need to purchase for everyone in your group who is 16 or older and does not have one already. We are licensed to sell Alaska fishing licenses at our office. We accept CASH ONLY.
