Season

Late April to late September. In May, after completing their spawn, Steelhead start their annual migration to the ocean from the Karluk Lake through the Karluk River. Catching Steelhead at this time of the year can be fast and furious. Fly fisherman delight in how readily these ravenous fish take properly presented flies. For anglers that prefer conventional gear will be amazed how these fish attack small spinner baits as they pass small outcroppings or boulders. Steelhead or leopard rainbows as they are sometimes called average about 10 pounds but fish up to 20 pounds are not unheard of. May is also a time when we catch Chinook or King salmon in the saltwater bays around Larsen Bay. These fish are most often taken trolling various baits along sandy beaches or over “king holes”. As June arrives many of the kings begin their migration up the Karluk River to spawn. These fish can be taken on conventional tackle or fly gear and generally average 20-30 pounds. When the run is on you can’t help but get exhausted battling these tremendous fighters.

 

As July rolls around we continue catching the last of the kings running the streams to spawn and the pinks also begin their annual spawn during this month. Larsen Bay is blessed with numerous streams where these fish return. When the pinks show up the resident Kodiak Brown bears know it is time to fatten up for the coming winter. Anglers will often be entertained watching the bears fish nearby. You will literally wear yourself out catching pinks if that is what you decide to target.

 

August is when our most prolific fishing commences, with the return of our Coho or Silver salmon to spawn in local rivers. These fish are caught in the ocean in large numbers trolling various baits or mooching with jigs and cut herring. This time of the year is when we catch the most fish. In addition to catching silvers in the ocean we catch many saltwater kings feeding with the silvers. When September arrives the sockeye salmon and silvers begin moving from the ocean to the streams begin their annual fall run. We still catch plenty in the saltwater but now is the time to breakout the fly or spin casting gear for the freshwater battles. Along towards the end of September and October big, fat and happy Steelhead return to the streams also. September is a tremendous time to catch a host of salmon in both salt and freshwater.

 

Halibut in Kodiak and Larsen Bay, Alaska are plentiful and range in size from small “chickens” to barn door sized in excess of 300 pounds. Typically most of our halibut range between 20 and 60 pounds but very few days go by that at least one hundred pounder is not brought to the surface. Each of our guests is encouraged to take halibut home but our lodge practices safe, catch and release of our larger fish to protect and enhance the resource. Nobody leaves Kodiak Island Resort without fish; we just try and harvest the best and most plentiful on most occasions. For those that want a trophy we have no problem helping them attain their goal. Halibut can be caught all season.
