Alaska river fishing the remote streams of Kodiak is a tranquil and unique experience. From the roar of a float plane engine to the screaming of a stressed reel, these are just a few of the sounds of freshwater fishing on Kodiak Island. Mostly you’ll hear the sound of the river running by and notice the stress fade away in this breathtaking environment.
Few places in the world can match the number of returning fish to the rivers and streams of Kodiak Island. From spin cast fishing to trying your luck fly fishing, Kodiak Legends Lodge provides all the gear you will need for a world-class Alaska river fishing experience (rods & reels, waders and tackle). Whether you are an avid fisher or just starting out, our expert guides can help you make the most out of your Kodiak Alaska river fishing adventure!
Guests opting to add on fly-out trips to fisheries like the Karluk Lagoon or Lower Dog on Olga Bay should notify us when you book your dates so we can coordinate your float plane charter reservation and inform you of the cost. We can add on this portion later as well, but the outcome will depend on flight availability so it’s best to let us know as far in advance as possible.
A couple days in the freshwater in the fall paired with a few days in the saltwater is a great combination. You’ll enjoy peace and tranquility while also filling some fish boxes for the family.
Kodiak fall river fishing is special because of the sheer variety of species we target, including coho, Dolly Varden, and rainbow trout. The island’s remote streams and rivers provide anglers with the rare opportunity to catch multiple salmon species in the same day. Silver salmon fishing in the fall is one of the many highlights in our fishing program. Silvers on Kodiak Island provide incredible fun with their airborne tactics, plus they’re known to be exceptionally large, averaging around 10- to 12 pounds for hens and 12- to 15 pounds for bucks, with a few behemoths that top the scales over 18 pounds! We fish in the rivers and streams with both conventional or fly gear, depending on the preferences of our guests.
