Alaska fishing license

Alaska is a huge state, occupying 1/5 of the territory of the USA and the fishing seasons here vary depending on the region. The fishing packages for visitors are offered mainly in the south-western and south-eastern regions, where fishing starts in late April and lasts until early October.

If we talk in general, then in Alaska it is easy to find excellent ocean (salmon, halibut, tuna, cod, flounder, sea ruff, etc.) and freshwater (trout, pike perch, sturgeon, whitefish, perch, carp, etc.) fishing.
