Sport & Charter Fishing Services

You're going to catch some beauties!
Alaskan sport fishing is amazing in Icy Straits!


Alaska is well known for having the best fishing on earth. From it's untapped rivers, countless wild streams, mountain lakes and pristine ocean waters, there is simply no better place to fish anywhere.

Sport fisherman have known this for years and describe Alaska as "legendary" when it comes to fishing expeditions and adventures. The fishing in Gustavus and Glacier Bay area is no exception.

In addition to being a sport fisherman's dream location, it's Icy Straits have supported many commercial fishermen for years who make their living hauling in several species of Salmon, as well as Halibut and Dungeness crabs.

There's plenty of fish around the Gustavus and Glacier Bay area for all to share, both freshwater and salt water.

Halibut can reach over three hundred pounds, while a twenty pounder is huge to some! Five species of Salmon are found around here too: Silver, Sockeye, Pink, Chum, and King. Crab and shrimp are also abundant, plus Dolly Vardin, Cutthroat trout and other fish.

Even for the non- fisher person, it is incredible to see the fish in the streams and learn of their spawning and life cycles.
