Alaskan wildernessIf you’re a fan of the great outdoors, look no further than a vacation to the Kodiak Islands. Located off the southwest coast of Alaska, the Kodiak Islands are a stunning natural reprieve from everyday life. Surround yourself with the lush, towering forests and breathe in the crisp, clean air. Among the islands, you will find Afognak Island, a retreat that offers both fresh and saltwater fishing trips as well as an abundance of wildlife exploration. Come stay at Afognak Wilderness Lodge to enjoy excellent accommodations and the Alaskan wilderness adventure of a lifetime. 

Afognak Island Fishing Trips

Afognak Island is the ultimate destination for fishing enthusiasts of all skill levels. Ideally located near both saltwater and freshwater, you have your choice of where to cast a line. The island is home to beautiful streams and rivers where you can reel in plentiful Alaska freshwater fish like sockeye, pink, and silver salmon, as well as rainbow, steelhead, and Dolly Varden trout. If you prefer the wide-open expanse of the ocean, then join Afognak out on the rich saltwater waves of the North Pacific where you’ll find halibut, flounder, lingcod, red snapper, and much more. The breathtaking Alaskan wilderness offers a calming atmosphere while you wait for the fish to bite.

Incredible Wildlife Viewing

The Alaskan wilderness is like a whole world of its own. Sparkling streams wind their way through the thick Sitka spruce forests and lead you into the depths of its rich, natural beauty. When you stay with Afognak Wilderness Lodge, you’re right in the heart of all this Alaskan wilderness. Join Afognak out on a wilderness experience in the Afognak Island State Park that lets you see the famous Kodiak Brown Bear, the largest bear in the world. You’ll also come across plenty of Sitka deer, Roosevelt elk, and a variety of birds soaring overhead. If you’re interested in sea mammals, you can head out on an ocean trip to view beautiful seals, sea otters, sea lions, porpoises, and magnificent orca (“killer”) and humpback whales.
