This summer, I'll be heading back up to SE AK with some friends for the second time. Last time we were up there, we spent a week at Island Point Lodge out of Petersburg and had a good time. We were there in mid-July and had good luck on halibut mostly, but had a good day on Kah Sheets with everyone catching their fair share of sockeye.
This time around, I want to try out one of the forest service cabins and I was wondering if anyone had some advice on the best cabin in terms of access to the most fishing opportunities (fresh and salt).
I've been researching the different cabins here -
The two I'm looking at right now are the Kah Sheets cabin and the Fish Creek cabin in Ketchikan. I'm familiar with the fishing holes at Kah Sheets and know where to pick up halibut around there as well so I have a certain level of comfort although I'd like to try something new if I can get some solid information and have confidence that we'll be in the right place at the right time.
Any thoughts on these two locations during the last week of July and/or first week of August? Other cabins that might be better?
Also, I would prefer to rent a boat and access the cabins that way so we have the ability to fish saltwater. Would this be possible, and if so, where could we rent the boat?
Thanks in advance for your help!
