Rainy Day Charters is a salmon fishing and halibut fishing charter company based out of beautiful Ketchikan, Alaska. We pride ourselves on giving people a wonderful Alaskan experience in every thing from salmon and halibut fishing to the scenery. We help people go fishing for that big fish for 4 hour trip or on up to a all day trip. We even take care of the details even the lodging to stay in our beautiful rainforest town.

We also will pick you up right at the ship and the boat will be a short walk away, no cabs or buses needed! Give us a call to book your next Alaska Fishing Adventure!

Captain Jared is the best. Friendly and made the trip fun. Put us on the fish right away and we caught a limit of pinks and some silvers. He took care of everything including having the fish processed and shipped. Fish with him!!!!More
