"New in 2014 we started replacing our fleet of boats and we now have 5 aluminum, hardtop boats for your fishing comfort. They are custom built for us and the ultimate 2 person fishing machine.
Word from the Lodge they are comfortable, fast and plenty fishy!! Look for some more pictures of them in action later in the season - they are too busy out catching fish for new pictures! I have been promised I will have them before this goes live!"
Chinook Shores’ Alaska Fishing Lodge in Ketchikan makes the most of saltwater fishing for salmon and halibut in the calm waters of Southeast Alaska. Unguided or self-guided fishing in Alaska is truly rewarding and lets you fish on your own schedule, at your own pace.
Ketchikan Alaska is known as the “Salmon Capital of the World” and is famous for huge runs of salmon, calm water halibut fishing, and many species of rock fish. You don’t have to go far (15-30 minutes) to get into some truly awesome fishing. Whether you’re unguided fishing in our 20′ North River bare-boats or guided fishing in our 28′ charter boat, you can enjoy same day combination salmon, halibut and rockfish trips. Some days the best salmon fishing is just five minutes away from our dock.
