Fishing in Icy Strait, Alaska

Fishing in Icy Strait, Alaska
The Icy Strait of Alaska is a strait, or waterway, that divides Chichagof Island from the mainland. It is in the southeastern part of the state near the Gulf of Alaska. There are fishing opportunities in the area, but to take advantage of them, you will need to travel by plane or boat. There are no roads that lead out of the area. Once there, unless you came by boat, the main way to get to the fish is by using a local charter service.
