Zachar Bay Lodge sits on Kodiak Island and right on the edge of Zachar Bay. The lodge is part of an old cannery that was built in the 1920's. Today, the compound features 11 guest rooms with double occupancy. The rooms are comfortable and feature two twin beds and basic facilities. The food is excellent. Meals are served family style and feature locally caught fresh seafood such as Halibut. The overall experience here is outstanding. There is plenty of the original cannery operation left to give guests the feeling of what it was like to work in a fish cannery. It makes for an inspiring adventure!
Fishing with Zachar Bay Lodge
Freshwater Fishing: Guests mostly fish in the local freshwater streams and rivers such as the Zachar River or fly out to the Frazer River. These are remote locations, so the wilderness is right there with you. Freshwater fishing includes all five species of Salmon, the Kings, Silver, Sockeye, Chum, and Pink. Additionally you will can fish for Dolly Varden and Rainbow Trout. The Rainbows and the Dolly Varden are very fond of Salmon roe and will follow the Salmon upstream. Both are excellent targets for sports fishermen as they are both fighters.
Ocean Fishing: The waters around Kodiak Island are filled with fish. Expect to catch Salmon and Halibut, as well as a variety of Cod and Snapper, like the wonderfully tasting Red Snapper. If you are truly lucky, you will get to pit your fishing prowess against the thrilling and wily Lingcod. These largemouth predators are long, lean fighters that are also excellent to eat. Then there is the Halibut. These are huge laterally compressed fish that very in size. The small ones called Chickens, weigh under 100 pounds. The larger ones called Barn Doors, can easily weigh 100-500 pounds. The monsters and god help you if you hook one, can weight up to 1000 pounds.
