Fishing with Shelter Lodge

Guests have access to some of the best Pacific Halibut fishing grounds in Alaska. Expect to fish for Chickens and Barn Doors. Chickens (Halibut under 100 pounds) are plentiful. Barn Doors (Halibut over 100 pounds) are common. Considering that these giant fish can weigh over 1000 pounds, you can see why Halibut fishing is so popular.

For salmon fishing, the local waters are rich in salmon. King Salmon or Chinook Salmon are amazing to fish for at sea. In additoin to Pacific Halibut and Salmon, guests have opportunities to fish for bottom fish like Red Snapper, Ling Cod, Black Cod, and Rock Fish. Salmon spices include Pink Salmon, King Salmon, Coho Salmon.

The fishing season is from May through October. Pacific Halibut are available all year long. The salmon availability coincides with their freshwater spawning runs. Salmon do not eat when they enter freshwater right before they spawn; they gorge. That gorging action is the best time to catch Salmon. For Kings, that means early in the season, May and June. For Silvers, that is June and July. For Pinks, all year long on the odd numbered years, and May and June in the even numbered years.
