Kodiak Legends Lodge sits on the shores of Uyak Bay, the next-level saltwater fishery that lies on the northwestern coast of Kodiak Island. Uyak Bay is known for its abundant marine wildlife—including whales, seals, otters, waterfowl, and most importantly, HEALTHY FISH POPULATIONS. Kodiak Legends Lodge symbolizes luxury fishing lodges in Alaska—complete with welcoming accommodations, 5-star dining, outstanding fishing, expert captains, and quality equipment. We set the scene for an incredible life experience with touches of comfort and class along the way.
KODIAK SALTWATER FISHING
Saltwater fishing opportunities abound at Kodiak Legends Lodge. Our 32-foot heated cabin boats (with bathroom on board) take you a short ride away in Uyak Bay where you can catch salmon, halibut, lingcod, yelloweye, and many kinds of rockfish. It’s common for our guests to reel up more than 20 halibut each, and 100+ pounders are not infrequent! In recent years we’ve seen a nice recovery of kings in the area with numbers and size of fish. Plan your trip for June for the best chance to fish for Chinook, plus you’ll experience excellent halibut and bottom fishing at that time that persists all season long.
A trip to our Alaska fishing lodge in Larsen Bay on Kodiak Island is the perfect combination of fishing, adventure, relaxation, and quality time with friends and family. We welcome all angling skill levels. Schedule a stay at our luxury fishing lodge, and get ready for the ultimate Alaska fishing trip to Kodiak!

LEGENDARY FISH CARE IN LARSEN BAY
