Glacier Bay is best known for tidewater glaciers, wildlife watching, and impressive scenery but sport fishing in the Bay can be an amazing opportunity. The wide diversity of fish habitats ranging from the wave swept coast to hundreds of freshwater streams, lakes, and rivers provides visitors from all over the world with a diverse and uniquely enjoyable experience.
Glacier Bay offers a wide variety of fish species for anglers to pursue in both salt and freshwater. In saltwater, most anglers target the bottom-dwelling halibut, but salmon species, especially Chinook and coho, are also sought. In Glacier Bay's freshwater streams, lakes and rivers, anglers can fish for salmon, both sea-run and resident trout including steelhead and cutthroat, as well as Dolly Varden char. All while enjoying the beauty and solitude of wilderness.
