Welcome to Sitka Area Sport Fishing Tour
Find your place. Find your fish.
Sitka (nearly 9,000 residents) is the only large community located within the Sitka Management Area. Vast marine areas can be accessed by boat from Sitka, while localized road systems provide limited access to nearby streams. Remote areas can be accessed via boat or float equipped aircraft.
The Sitka Management Area offers a wide variety of recreational fishing opportunities. Anglers can target all five species of Pacific salmon: king, coho, sockeye, chum and pink. Fisheries for these species occur primarily in marine waters but coho and pink salmon are also targeted to a lesser degree along shoreline areas and in fresh water. Popular sport fisheries occur in marine waters for halibut, lingcod and rockfish, while shellfish such as tanner and dungeness crab, shrimp and variety of clams support smaller fisheries. Steelhead and anadromous and resident forms of Dolly Varden and cutthroat trout support small freshwater fisheries.
