Our cruise in early June 2018 will end up in Anchorage. Is it possible to go halibut fishing nearby before we fly home?
You can't fish in Anchorage. The best fishing place closest to Anchorage, is probably the Kasilof River in Kenai. The distance from Anchorage to Kenai by driving is about 3 hours.Edited: 31 July 2017, 14:32
"You can't fish in Anchorage"
- not true
- you won't catch halibut in Anchorage, but there's great salmon fishing in downtown Anchorage's Ship Creek.
- halibut can be fished as close as Whittier (about an hour from Anchorage).Edited: 31 July 2017, 23:42
It's the land portion of the trip, to Denali, that ends in Anchorage for the flight home. We want to extend the trip to include halibut fishing if that is an option for this time of year,
