Embarking on a fishing journey in Haines positions anglers a mere stone’s throw from the abundant fishing territories, typically a journey of less than fifteen minutes to reach prime locations.

The primary catch in this region is the majestic King Salmon, found in the waters of Taiya Inlet or the Upper Lynn Canal.

The fishing season kicks off in early May, extending through June, focusing on the larger ‘breeder’ kings. These salmon, on the cusp of spawning, are recognized as some of the largest in the world, with some specimens tipping the scales at over 90 pounds.

As the calendar turns to July and stretches into mid-October, the ‘feeder’ kings take center stage. These are the salmon destined to spawn in future seasons, constantly feeding to bulk up. While not as large as the breeders, feeder kings are known for their frequent bites and the enjoyment they bring to anglers.

The adventure also offers the chance to reel in three other salmon species, each known by multiple names: Silver (Coho), Pink (Humpies), and Chum (Dogs, Silver Brights, Pacific Salmon), providing a diverse fishing experience throughout the summer months.

Complimentary services include a selection of hot beverages such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate, water, and snacks, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable excursion.

All necessary fishing gear and bait are provided, making the experience hassle-free. Additionally, fishing licenses can be purchased onboard for $30 (including the King Salmon tag), with cash payments only.

For licensing, nonresidents must purchase a license and tag if they intend to fish. Residents and individuals under 16 do not require a license.

When preparing for your trip, anticipate temperatures ranging between 45 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s advisable to dress in layers, including a warm hat for cooler days and a waterproof jacket. Don’t forget sunglasses, sunscreen, and a hat for sunnier days. And most importantly, bring a camera to capture the breathtaking scenery and wildlife of Taiya Inlet.
