Do it and have fun... be flexible... we caught a 40 inch Halibut, had to release it as sport fishing guidelines the halibut has to be 38 inches or less. Salmon wasn't running, so went for Rockfish. Which were more plentiful and good for tacos. We did not have fish sent back, kept it and grilled some and froze the rest. Stayed at private residence in Juneau so could do that.

I think July should be a good month but the salmon were just coming into the bay areas to seek to go upstream. We should have been able to catch more fish but they just weren't hitting as we hoped. Perhaps August is a better month but July was when we were there and the weather was fine. Conditions for fishing were also very good, not very windy, a little drizzle but no rain showers, and mostly cloudy. It was a little chilly but comfortable. We really enjoyed talking to Capt Terry and Jonah about a bunch of topics. Overall it was still a fun day.

For a first time fisher person this works out well. However, one has to become more patient because of the obvious (and that is no different than just about anywhere) reduction of the available fish to catch. Be flexible in what you are going after. Restricting to just Salmon OR Halibut OR Rock fish just doesn't work. Be flexible!

Bring binoculars so you can see all the fish jumping at a distance because there are a lot of them, and bring your muscles because you're going to need them, they put up a pretty good fight.
