Kodiak Lodge is located on Kodiak Island in Larsen Bay and offers outstanding Salmon and Halibut fishing.

Guests are housed in a beautiful lodge with seven comfortable, well-appointed rooms. Beds are fitted with a deluxe mattress. There are six rooms with a single queen sized bed and a single room with two twin beds and a private bath. All other rooms have a bathroom between rooms which is shared. For meals, expect gourmet food from their expert chef. The Lodge features a hot tub.

Fishing with Kodiak Lodge

Guests have the option of fishing saltwater of freshwater or both. Fly-out fishing trips are available, but the local area is so rich with fish that they are not needed.

Freshwater species include King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Silver Salmon, Dolly Varden, and the shy Steelhead.

Saltwater fishing offers amazing Salmon fishing for Kings and Silvers. If you like big fish, then the Halibut are perfect for you. Along the way, you may encounter Rock Fish, big Cod, and Snapper.

Saltwater fishing is via two 23 foot custom Pacific and a 28-foot custom Fish-Rite Boats. Your fish are also processed and frozen for you when you hit the dock.

Freshwater Fishing and Saltwater Fishing

Guests have the opportunity to fish along the Karluk River, which is accessible by hiking or ATV. It is a short walk, and the river offers a high diversity of fish for your angling pleasure. For those who want a floating adventure, a fly-out to start the of the Kruluk and then float the 14 miles back to the lodge.

The Kurluk is home to King Salmon runs that start in early May. The Kings are the big salmon and weigh between 20-40 pounds with trophy sized fish weighing between 50-70 pounds. The Sockeye, or Red Salmon are also available, and these are the best eating Salmon you can catch. The Sockeye run in the millions so expect ample opportunity for fishing. Not to be outdone are the Coho or Silver Salmon, which run in the 8-12 pound range, but act like a 50-pound salmon when you set the hook. These fish are sporty. The breach the water, tail dance across the water, and display acrobatics that make them amazing fish to target.

Saltwater Fishing

The waters around Kodiak Island are amazingly rich with fish. As the fish runs start, the Salmon pack into the local waters feeding in a frenzy before heading upstream. The Halibut are attracted by the Salmon and they move closer to shore to pick up the smaller fish. This is your opportunity to land big Halibut in the 100-200-pound range and maybe as big as 300-400-pound range.

Overall, expect an outstanding fishing adventure.
