In the clear, cool waters surrounding Prince of Wales Island, rich tides prime the deep waters with millions of bait fish that attract annual returns of trophy-size Salmon, Halibut, Red Snapper and Ling Cod. This natural phenomenon first made Waterfall one of the most productive Salmon canneries in Alaska. As a result, this annual return of fish has given Waterfall its legendary reputation.
Since the early 1900’s this area has been famous for the rich fishing grounds that once made Waterfall Cannery. In 1936, the facility produced 222,000 cases of Salmon, then the record for any cannery. Waterfall Cannery’s last pack was in 1970. After an extensive renovation, Waterfall opened as a resort in 1983. Today, the resort attracts anglers from around the world of all skill levels for legendary sportfishing and Alaskan Adventure.
