Planning your fishing trip in Seward just got easier, thanks to First Cast Fishing!

You’ll be fishing from the shore, including some spots only locals know about. Gabriel specializes in light tackle fishing, and that’s what you can expect on the day of your trip. You will also wade for your catch. Gabriel will provide rods and reels. Depending on the time of year, Chinook Salmon, Pink Salmon, Coho Salmon, and more could be biting.

You’re welcome to have any fish that meet regulations. Gabriel even offers to clean your catch, so it’s ready to fry up at home. Have a cooler ready in the car! Gabriel welcomes groups as large as 20 on this guided experience. You’ll make your way to the fishing grounds on foot, so dress for current weather conditions and bring only as much as you can carry.

With liberal limits of Salmon, you can have fun and put fish in the freezer. You’ll enjoy the stunning wildlife and Alaskan views. Depending on the time of year, our species of Salmon change. In May, June, and July, there are King Salmon and Sockeye. In July and August, there are Pink Salmon and Chum Salmon. The Silver Salmon start coming mid-August and run through September.

Layered clothing and appropriate footwear are always encouraged (if you aren’t sure what that means, ask). It’s always a good idea to bring sunglasses, bottled water, and sunscreen, rain or shine. Gabriel welcomes anglers of all ages on these trips, including kids. Your fishing license for the day is not included, so members of your group may need to buy one.

The Seward wilderness is calling. Now let First Cast Fishing take you there!

    You'll be wading (no boat). Salmon fishing in Seward is very unique. We snag Salmon, and the first cast guides do it by seeing the fish, then casting. It's almost like hunting but with a pole. It can be very intense when you're looking for King Salmon and then you see some monsters headed your way. Then it's up to you to snag one, fight it to a rugged beach and land it. This 4-hour trip is seasonal.
