Directly in front of Kodiak Legends Lodge lies Uyak Bay. Uyak Bay is known for its abundant marine wildlife, including whales, seals, otters, waterfowl, and most importantly, BIG fish. Depending upon the time of year, you can catch all five species of salmon, as well as halibut, ling-cod, yelloweye, and many different species of rockfish. It is common to catch more than five different species of game fish in a day! From LARGE halibut to aggressive Coho (silver) Salmon, you will love our saltwater fishing.
Our saltwater fishing program is in Uyak Bay, directly in front of the lodge. It is a narrow, deep inlet carved by glacial activity thousands of years ago. Unlike other halibut fishing destinations, Uyak Bay has sheltered, protected waters ensuring calmer seas. Additionally, guests will fish for halibut in shallower waters between 100-300 feet deep versus 400+ feet in many other areas of Alaska. For Salmon we use a combination of techniques, ranging from trolling, jigging, to casting flies. Other species such as rockfish and cod we primarily jig from 60-400ft.
Travel time to prime fishing areas ranges from 10 minutes—1 hour. Our daily fishing schedules are tailor-made to your preference however typical time on the water is 8:00a.m.—4:30p.m.
Kodiak Legends Lodge operates with two high quality aluminum fishing boats.
Our boats carry several rod/reel varieties depending on what you are targeting:
We are loaded with a vast array of jigs, lures and terminal tackle to suit all your needs while fishing in the spectacular fishery of Uyak Bay.
Chinook (King) Salmon
We primarily target Kings from June to Mid-July however feeder kings can be caught year round. Average fish size 15- 30 pounds.
Coho (Silver) Salmon
Silvers start showing up in Early August and can be targeted thru late August early September. These fisheries produce trophy Silvers, with 18+ pounders not uncommon.
We have great halibut fishing June through September. July and August we often catch them in shallower water.
Other species in Uyak Bay include Lingcod, Yellow-eye, and other types of rockfish can be caught throughout the season.
At Kodiak Legends Lodge we operate without a firm set schedule—you are here also to relax so we are flexible to customize your experience.
Each evening, our lodge manager or head guide will meet with you to discuss the best activity options for the following day and make a recommendation, with guest interests, weather and of course which species of the fish at biting.
Below is a typical daily schedule at Kodiak Legends Lodge:
