Fishing in Ketchikan For Halibut or Salmon:

Charter fishing in Ketchikan Alaska for halibut or salmon is the best fishing in North America. Ketchikan Alaska is known as the ‘Salmon Capital of the World.’

We’re not like a lot of the other charter fishing companies that offer halibut and salmon fishing around Ketchikan Alaska.  We take great pride in what we do and not just the bottom line.  We don’t just take you out charter fishing because we can, we're passionate about what we do and will work hard to give you the best trip possible with the amount of time you have.

We keep our boat and gear in top notch condition, all maintenance is done on regular intervals.  We also participate in an annual voluntary US Coast Guard inspection.

You can contact us at any time with questions or concerns and I will be happy to answer them.

Most Popular:

When you book a 4 hour Salmon charter with Oasis Alaska Charters in Ketchikan, Alaska, we do our best to spend the most possible amount of time fishing rather than running in the boat! This is our most popular charter if you are on a cruise ship and time is limited.

Captain Murray!

You will be fishing for King, Silver, Pink, and Chum salmon. Depending on the month, each species has it’s best time of running through Clover Pass. If you have more time, the 6 hour Salmon or 6 hour Salmon/Halibut charter gives you a better opportunity to catch more fish! It is all about the rod hours when it comes to fishing in Ketchikan, including the densely populated fishing waters of Clover Pass!

Save Your Money:

This is where I try to talk you out of buying your more expensive fishing excursion on the ship and to book a private charter with us.

If you get one of the fishing excursions from the ship you will pay more and not know very much about it.

Napa King Salmon on budget alaska fishing charterYou’re not going to know things like the condition of the boat or gear, its size, the number of downriggers or how many fishing poles will be fished at one time, is it clean, is there a toilet, etc...

You will be loaded on a bus with the other people that are going fishing, driven to the dock where you will be grouped up with others that will be in your fishing group and taken to the boat.

In most cases there will be six of you on the boat. But in some cases it could be more. It can still be fun but you also have to share the fishing poles. If the boat should only catch a few fish, you may not get to be one of the lucky ones.  In my opinion this is all about the bottom line and not what is best for the customer.  I can really only think of one case where this works out in your best interest, and that is if you’re the only one in your group that wants to go fishing because all of the charter boats have a two - four person minimum.

We understand

That many of our guests might only get the opportunity to fish in Alaska once in a lifetime.  We never take it for granted and our goal is to make it the best fishing experience we can.  We work hard to make it not only a lot of fun, but do in it in the safest manner possible.  Fish On!!

Halibut Fishing

 Here are 5 Halibut Fishing Tips to help you out.

Peak Salmon Runs:

At the peak of the salmon run it’s very common catch anywhere from 2 to 4 salmon at the same time. When this happens, there are few things more exhilarating. The salmon are running all around in different directions and it’s one of the most astonishingly beautiful things to witness and experience.

This picture was taken in September during the Coho/Silver salmon run…We were lucky to be in the right spot at the right time fishing in Ketchikan!

We could not pull them in fast enough that day…When the salmon are running and you are fishing at the right time it can be fast and furious!

We hope this will happen every day for our clients! And if not, that they will still enjoy the fishing experience of a lifetime!!!
