Shore fising in Haines
My wife and I will be visiting Skagway in late July and are planning on making a side trip to Haines. We would like to do a little fishing while there and are seeking advise on what is available. We will only be fishing from shore since a guided trip is not in our budget. We don't care what kind of fish are available just want something to pull our string. We will not be keeping any fish so chum or pink salmon are fine with us.
Thanks to anyone who takes time to offer his advice.
The Chilkoot River probably will be your best best. It's on the outskirts of town and offers good bank access. Should be sockeye and pinks in the system while you're there. The bear and eagle viewing can be phenomenal as well, so be sure to bring a camera. Good luck!
