Fishing Excursions in Kodiak, Alaska

At Afognak Wilderness Lodge, our mission is to help people experience the majesty of the Alaskan wilderness in all its glory – and there’s no better way to do it than by visiting our Kodiak Island wilderness lodge for your own wilderness vacation. Located in the pristine environment of the Kodiak Archipelago, our Kodiak resort situates you perfectly to experience the lush meadows, rugged trails, and breathtaking landscapes of Kodiak Island. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy some of the best freshwater and saltwater fishing in the world.

Freshwater Fishing Excursions in Kodiak

Along the majestic shores of this particularly prized Kodiak Island, streams and their estuaries are tucked into cozy nooks that make for ideal places to do the kind of fishing that can only happen in remote areas of the wilderness. Sockeye, Pink, and Silver Salmon all visit these streams to breed each year, while Rainbow, Steelhead, & Dolly Varden Trout call them home year-round. Simply pack up your gear, stroll from our wilderness lodge to your favorite fishing hole, and enjoy the magic of catching tonight’s dinner.

Saltwater Fishing Trips in Alaska

Fishing on the island is magical – but it’s only half of what our wilderness lodge has to offer. Offshore, you’ll find a myriad of prized saltwater species that would make any angler jealous. From giant halibut down to the delicate flounder, our Kodiak island offshore fishing trips always yield an impressive haul. Delectable lingcod, red-snapper, sea-bass, greenling, and much more await you – and thanks to the pristine habitat, you’ll be reeling in catch after catch.

More Alaska Fishing Options

In addition to freshwater and saltwater fishing trips, low tide provides an excellent opportunity to explore the unique aquatic life of the island. You can dig clams, harvest mussels and cockles, hunt octopus, or just investigate the fascinating ecosystems of jelly-fish, starfish, sea-urchins, periwinkles, jumping-jacks, and much more that populate the intertidal zone.
