Salmon and Halibut Fishing Lodge on Kodiak Island
Shallow Water Fishing for Halibut, Salmon, Rockfish, and Cod.
Kodiak Island is a secluded fishing heaven and should be on every anglers bucket list. This area is ranked the #1 fishery in protected waters. The water is rich with baitfish, resulting in large halibut, King salmon, silver salmon, and Ling Cod.
Fish only 15-45 minutes from the lodge in calm shallow water making the fishing more intense. Your catch will be processed on sight and frozen into fish boxes for you to bring home. After the day of fishing is over you will relax in the comfortable fishing lodge and enjoy a cocktail and appetizers in front of the fire or hang out in the upstairs lounge trading fishing stories and looking at photos from the day. Enjoy a chef prepared dinner served with beer and wine before retiring to do it all over again the following day!
The cold Alaskan waters offer some of the finest fishing for halibut and the shallow waters off of Kodiak Island offer some of the finest fishing. You can expect to catch halibut ranging from 30 to 100 pounds with the biggest ones of the year tipping the scales at 300 pounds! Halibut are here all year but the best fishing is after June 1st. While fishing for halibut you can also catch rockfish (think fish tacos), ling cod, snapper, and bass. The ling cod in this area are some of the biggest you will ever see and you can specifically target these other species, just ask your guide!
King Salmon are one of the most prized catches in Alaska due to their massive size. Though present year round, the peak King Salmon season here at Kodiak Island is from May 15 – July 15 as this is when most of the 30-60 pound beasts swim the local waters. The earlier part of the season is when most “Trophy” fish over 50 pounds are caught and guests have won the local king derby the past 3 years! The Kings are fished with downriggers and light tackle most of the fishing will be done by trolling.
Silver Salmon are most present on Kodiak Island from August to September 15. These 10-20 pound fish are aggressive fast swimmers. Fishing is done much the same way as fishing for the kings. You can load up your fish boxes during this season with arguably some of the best eating pacific salmon. After you catch your limit get ready for some halibut fishing!
Over the next year you will enjoy some of the best tasting fish you have ever had and it will have been caught by you! There is a commercial fish smoker in town if you wish to have some of your salmon smoked.
We caught the end of the King run, and hit the peak of the chums, which are a blast to catch as well as had some big Rainbows thrown in. Over all, the lodge has my unreserved recommendation.
This Alaskan fishing adventure is the reason we create our bucket lists in the first place. After taking this trip I can say I highly recommend it as one of my all time favorite weeks in my lifetime.
The guys at Outdoors International set my brother and I up with a fishing trip in Alaska that blew our minds! It was exactly what we were looking for, and we slayed the salmon. We are customers for life.
