    Default Shore fishing in Skagway

    Hi,
    My wife and I will be taking a cruise out of Seward in late July and we will have about half of a day to do some shore fishing before boarding the ship. I have searched this site for helpful information and there is more mention of Miller's Landing at Lowell Point than anything else. I looked at Google Earth maps and see where the landing is located but have a few questions. First off we are experienced fishermen just short on cash so we are not able to book a charter but don't want to be this close to the water and not at least give the fish a try. As far as what we want to catch, we are not picky as long as it is salmon. Will not keep any fish so pinks and chum are find for us. We just want to catch something.

    First off, do you think the Miller's Landing area would be our best bet?

    Would it be a problem parking a rental car at the landing and walking down to the beach to fish? Don't know how the owners would feel about that.

    There seems to be a lot of open beach on the Lowell Point road, especially if there is not a high tide. Are there some good places to fish along this road?

    We would appreciate any advice you can offer.

    Maybe if you changed your town in the title to "Seward" you would get some area-specific assistance? From reading your posts it looks like you plan to cover a lot of country up here while visiting in July.

    JKD,
    You are right!!! Guess I just got in too much of a hurry. Can't find a way to edit the thread so I will re-post using Seward rather than Skagway. Thanks for pointing out my error.
