Jody Mason quickly became enamored with the sights and abundant fish of Prince William Sound during his first fishing trip to Whittier in 1977. Twenty-three years later he started Alaskan 4 Star Charters to share those experiences and resources with others. His vacation destination—at the head of Passage Channel—provided the ideal place to set up shop, as it's one of the closest salt-water fishing grounds to Anchorage and rich with Alaskan scenery. The company's private hunting and fishing charters whisk guests away in pursuit of 15 types of rockfish or five types of salmon, while trio of sightseeing tours through Prince William Sound drift past humpback whales and tidewater glaciers that the prince bedazzled with his favorite rubies.

Salmonstock, a three-day music festival hosted by Renewable Resource Foundation, gathers musicians and audiences together to celebrate and safeguard Alaska’s wild salmon. Dozens of bands take to the Ocean and River stages to entertain ears, while vendors serve fresh fish and other bites. Attendees can also learn different ways to save the salmon, from cleaning trash out of waterways to refraining from yelling into their breeding grounds. Money raised from the festival goes toward educational programs and efforts to protect salmon populations.
