  • Q: Where is Kodiak lodge?A: Kodiak Lodge is located on Kodiak Island in a small village called Larsen Bay. Larsen Bay is approximately 60 air miles from the city of Kodiak and is only accessible by plane or boat.
  • Q: How do I get there?A: You will book a flight to Anchorage with continuing service to Kodiak. Once you arrive in Kodiak you will hop a flight with Island Air to Larsen Bay where our staff will meet you on the landing strip and shuttle you to our lodge.
  • Q: What type of fishing do you offer?A: We fish all 5 species of salmon (Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Pink, Chum) as well as Steelhead, Dolly Varden Trout, Halibut, Yellow Eye, Lingcod and a variety of Rockfish.
    Due to our location we are able to fish both saltwater and freshwater.
  • Q: When is the best time to visit?A: It really depends on what you want to fish for. June and July are best for Kings while
    August and September are best for Silvers. Halibut and bottom fishing is generally good throughout the season. If you are interested in Steelhead, the best time is October and November.
  • Q: Do you have to fly out each day?A: No! This is what makes Kodiak Lodge so unique. Many lodges require fly outs which can be great if the weather cooperates. However, in Alaska there are many days where you shouldn’t fly. At Kodiak Lodge fly outs are available, however they are not required. We are able to access rivers by boat, ATV, or a short hike and the saltwater fishing is done a short boat ride from the lodge.
  • Q: What do I need to bring?A: Weather is unpredictable in Alaska so it’s best to bring layered clothing. If you are interested in hard alcohol, then you will want to bring that also, as we don’t provide. Of course you will want to bring a camera as well.
  • Q: What type of boats and equipment do you provide?A: Our custom aluminum boats are built for Kodiak waters. Our 28ft cabin cruiser by Fish Rite has a full marine head and comfortable cabin for getting out of the weather. This is a brand new boat for the 2012 season. We also fish two 23ft Pacific’s which fish great. Our rods and reels are top of the line from Daiwa. We also provide raingear, float coats and rubber boots. If you are interested in fly fishing, we recommend that you bring your own equipment.
  • Q: How many people do you fish per boat?A: For our cabin cruiser we comfortably fish four per boat, although it will handle as many as six if a group wants to all fish together. In our smaller boats we prefer to fish 2 per boat with a max of three.
  • Q: How many people can you accommodate?A: We accommodate a maximum of 8 guests per week.
  • Q: What are the sleeping accommodations?A: Our “semi private” rooms are upscale with comfortable queen beds. We designed them so that each room is separated by a shared bath. Our guests really appreciate this when there is a loud snorer in the group.
  • Q: Are there any special rates for children?A: Absolutely! We are big believers in introducing the next generation to the outdoors.
    For kids 12 and under, we offer a 50% discount off our full price trips. Please contact our reservations office for further details and restrictions.
  • Q: Is there anything to do besides fishing?A: We are primarily a fishing lodge, however the wildlife viewing is spectacular, particularly the Kodiak Brown Bear.
  • Q: What if we are weathered in and can’t make it for our entire trip?A: We recommend that guests purchase trip insurance. Our reservations office can help assist with this.
  • Q: What are the fish limits for Kodiak?A: Limits can change from year to year, however the limits in Kodiak have been very generous compared to other parts of Alaska. For the 2011 season, our saltwater limit's were:
    • 5 salmon, any combination of red, silver, chum, and pink
    • 2 king salmon
    • 5 pelagic rockfish
    • 1 non pelagic rockfish
    • 2 halibut – No size restrictions
    • 2 ling cod after July 1
    Our freshwater limit's were:
    • 5 salmon, any combination of red, silver, chum, and pink
    • 2 king salmon, 4 king salmon per season

    Limits are per license, per day!
  • Q: Are there any restrictions for how much fish we can take home?A: No! Unlike many lodges, you are allowed to keep what you catch. However, the airlines have weight limits and may charge for additional boxes. Kodiak Lodge will fillet, freeze and vacuum pack your catch in airline approved, 50lb boxes.
  • Q: Is phone and internet service available?A: Yes, however cell phones will not work.
  • Q: What is a normal gratuity?A: Gratuities typically range from 8% to 12% of the package price which is then divided among the entire staff.
