Fishing Kodiak -- Barn Door Halibut

The primary focus of this lodge is saltwater fishing. We are talking large Halibut between 50-250 pounds. If luck is on your side, you might break the 495 pound Alaska Halibut Record. This is also a wonderful area for Salmon fishing. Larsen Bay is home to all five of the Pacific Salmon species. The kings are the largest and show up the earliest. Their run spans May and part of August. Expect 15-40 pound fish with the occasional 50 plus pound fish too. The Silver or Coho Salmon are at peak in August. These fish offer an amazing sporting experience. They strike hard and display aquatic acrobatics that is impressive. A day fishing silvers will wear you out. The Tiger, Red and Pink salmon are often smaller 10-20 pounds and fill the summer with excellent Salmon fishing.

Freshwater Fishing at Foxtail Lodge

The Zachar River sits just across the bay and offers some amazing freshwater fishing. It is a good place to fly fish for Tiger, Red, and Pink Salmon. It is also a prime time to view bears. The Kodiak brown bears are in sync with the salmon runs, and their favorite salmon are the pinks.

The Larsen Bay Area

Larsen Bay is a sheltered bay and offers calmer waters than most of the saltwater venues around Alaska. It offers fishermen an outstanding habitat to fish. In between the Halibut and the Salmon are many species of fish that will thrill you. Enjoy the variety of Cod fishing, such as Red Cod, Golden Eye, and sometimes Black Cod. There is a population of bass here too. Try your hand at fly fishing for Bass in saltwater. If you switch to a sinking fly, you might also find you are suddenly battling a Silver Salmon or the local predator, the Ling Cod. In the end, it is all good because these are all good fish to eat.
