What Guests Say
“Our third time here and we find something new and wonderful everytime. This has become our Alaskan home.”Shizuko Kato, Osaka, Japan
How amazing to watch seal lion roar, brown bear cross the beach just ahead of us, see rare sea birds and end the day with a 10pm waterski run down the bay! Also nice to see a family working together so well… many talents here.Parvis and Kay Sadighi, Massachusetts
This was the BEST lodge we’ve been to. All the comforts of home in a remote setting. Very friendly people, helpful and obliging… like Laura Ashley marries Eddie Bauer! Caught fish here when all were getting skunked everywhere else. The lodge even added extra fish to our box of frozen fish for the trip home.Don and Joyce Benioff, California
Family feeling… just wonderful with small groups being a plus! Very accommodating. Lots of wildlife that we could get close to. It was truly Wonderful.Lon and Susie Byars family, Texas
Unique experience due to the fact that the location is in the extreme wilderness. Most beautiful place we have seen.Ted and Debra Layne, California

Visiting Afognak Island during August and September is not only great for freshwater fishing (with our coho/”silver” salmon) and wildlife viewing, but it’s also a great time to see some of our most entertaining mammals, the sea lion. Sea lions can be seen after a short half hour boat trip from the lodge, both on their island and in the water. These magnificent creatures are known to come quite close to our boats, and can be seen in larger numbers due to the Coho/”Silver” salmon run.
At our Kodiak Alaska fishing lodge, we have good fresh and saltwater fly fishing, which includes three of the five major species of salmon. These salon run between late-May and late-September, making our lodge a top destination for fisherman who want the variety of both fresh and deep-sea fishing. In this blog, we’ll discuss what’s to come at Afognak Wilderness Lodge during the late summer and fall months, characterized by the return of the Humpback/”pink” salmon, Coho/”silver” salmon, and Dolly Varden.
At Afognak Wilderness Lodge, we see a lot of wildlife – and the diverse birds of the Kodiak Islands are particularly remarkable. In our last blog, we highlighted a few of our favorite onshore birds – birds you may see when walking through the forests of the island. For this blog, we’ll talk about a few of the birds that could be spotted during our fishing trips or whale watching tours.
