Pink salmon, chum salmon and red salmon are also caught in the area, along with Dolly Varden and trout.  Crab are available.

Geography

The Juneau area is the largest in SE Alaska and the most varied. The landscapes are comprised primarily of steep mountains and deep fjords. The mountains are covered with dense rainforest, except where logged or otherwise disturbed.  Glaciers in the coast mountains are common and some come to tidewater.

Transportation

Juneau is served by daily jet service from the continental United States. Other communities are served by frequent commuter flights. The Alaska marine highway calls at Juneau, Haines, Skagway, Hoonah, and Tenakee Hot Springs. Float planes serve other locations. Haines and Skagway are the only communities directly connected to the North American road system.


Weather

Click for Juneau, Alaska Forecast

Southeast Alaska weather is unpredictable but tends toward wet. The summer months are usually relatively dry by Southeast Alaska standards, but as the summer ends, the fall storms begin. Anglers should be prepared for wet weather. Even overcast days with drizzle can be pleasant. The least favorable fishing days are those with wind and rain.
