Fishing with Salmon Catchers Lodge

Guests have the option when booking their stay to choose a fishing package. The packages are freshwater or saltwater with a designated location. The choices include the Kasilof River, Kenai River, and Homer or Seward or Ninilchik for Halibut fishing. Other options include a guided walk-in trip to the Anchor River or Deep Creek. The lodge offers fly-out trips too.

The Fish and the Adventure

The Options list can be a bit confusing so make sure that you fully understand what options are available, and what is included. This area of Alaska is world famous for its fishing.

Homer is the Halibut Capital of the World, and if you are interested in fishing for Pacific Halibut, this is the place to head. The nice thing about this lodge is that it does offer options for a variety of fishing adventures.

The King Salmon start in mid-May on the Kasilof River. You can also opt to fish for both King Salmon and Halibut at Ninilchik. This option is saltwater fishing at its best. The Kings queue up in the shallows and gorge before they head upstream. Their presence brings in the big Halibut, so this option can be a grand adventure.

In June, the river options open for Kings and you can choose between the Kasilof River or the Kenai River for Kings and the first run of Sockeye. Halibut fishing remains in its prime.

In July, the second run of Kings have entered the Kasilof, and Kenai Rivers and the Sockeye are massing by the millions. This is prime salmon fishing.

By August, the Kings are spent, and the rivers are peak with Sockeye, Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, and Silver Salmon. This is the perfect time to target Rainbows, Dolly Varden or to take on the Wiley Silver Salmon. Homer and Seward are still viable options for Halibut and Ling Cod.

By September, the Sockeye are spent, but the Silvers are still in prime shape. The Rainbow and Dolly Varden fishing remains active. Halibut fishing is also still in full swing.

Expect a beautiful property with well-appointed cabins in the heart of what is the Salmon fishing area of Alaska.
