Enjoy a half-day of fishing for famous Alaska salmon. This is world-class fishing for King and/or red salmon in the pristine rivers of the Copper Valley. Float the scenic tributaries of the famous Copper River and fish from the riverbanks under the watchful eye of professional fishing guides.

Princess Cruises' Cook My Catch is our exclusive culinary experience highlighting the pinnacle of fresh seafood. Our chefs can cook and serve salmon caught while on select fishing excursions in Alaska. Guests can choose their preferred preparation and accompaniments for their fresh-caught salmon. This unique dining experience is available on land at the Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge. Salmon must be caught while on select Princess approved excursions and can be served for lunch or dinner, which offers unique way to enjoy your very own fresh caught wild Alaskan salmon.
