Sitka is full of hiking trails for all levels of ability. The Forest Service Office located on Katlian Street has a wonderful hiking book filled with maps and information. Sitka Trail Works is another great resource.
The best of the fishing season takes place in the spring and summer months. Fish in season in the early summer include King Salmon, Dolly Varden, and Pink Salmon. Graylings are in season all summer, while Lingcod will sometimes be temporarily out of season, but this varies. Halibut are in season all year, but good luck catching them in the winter months - an almost impossible feat. Finally, in the late summer, trout and steelhead are your best bets. If you do not understand the seasons and the corresponding rules, talk to members of the crew that fish. If you have never fished before, it would really be a good idea to fish with someone who has for your first time out.
Hunting is another sport in which one could learn from hunting with one or more partners for your first few endeavors. There are many seasons for the various game. Deer are in season from August 1st to January 31st, with the month of January allowing hunting on federal lands only. Brown bear are around in the fall and spring, but if you are not yet a resident of Sitka (have been here less than a year) you are required to hire a guide to accompany you, and that can be expensive. Goats provide for tough hunting, but if you are good enough to get within range, you are pretty much guaranteed a shot. You are allowed 1 goat per year and the best time to hunt them are from August to September. For more details concerning fishing and hunting, visit the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
