About Prince William Sound
Prince William Sound is a sound off the Gulf of Alaska on the south coast of Alaska. It is located on the eastern side of the Kenai Peninsula. Most of the land surrounding Prince William Sound is part of the Chugach National Forest, the second largest national forest in the U.S. This area provides some spectacular scenery as it is ringed by the steep and glaciated Chugach Mountains.
Whitter, Cordova and Valdez are popular fishing vacation destinations where anglers target five species of Pacific salmon, rainbow trout, halibut, rockfish, lingcod, cutthroat trout and Dolly Varden. For more fishing information, take a look at our Prince William Sound Fishing Tips page.
