I'll be doing my first ever 7 day Alaska cruise in June with Royal Caribbean. Our first port of call is Ketchikan. One of the shore excursions they offer is salmon fishing. I would like to know from any experienced Alaska folks, is the salmon fishing any good in June in Ketchikan? The excursion costs $195 and, I don't want to spend that kind of money and have little chance of catching a fish. Your input will help me decide if it's worth doing this excursion or not.

Sure, Kings should be running pretty good then.

Southeast is usually known for it's fishing towns, so there should be plenty of Kings, you might get into Reds if you're around mid to late June but some start running before that.

It really depends though on whether the fish are biting, whether you are fishing in the right place where the fish are at, and what you are using to catch them with - using 5 pound test on Kings might pose a challenge.
