Halibut, Lingcod and Rockfish on Kodiak

Driftwood Wilderness Lodge is located on a secluded lagoon with views of Uyak Bay, which is 60 miles southwest of the city of Kodiak. The nearby village of Larsen Bay is home to about 100 people and according to Travel Alaska is next to some of the best fishing grounds in the Kodiak Archipeligo. During the summer, when the local cannery is open, the population of Larsen Bay swells to 300, and a local mercantile store is open. The store supplies locals and visitors with food, gear, and most importantly – a rare Alaskan treat for those who are off the grid, ice cream! Fishing is the main interest of most visitors to Larsen Bay. The area features protected bays and inlets near the village or the open ocean for salmon, halibut, lingcod and rockfish. DWL is a boat ride away from stream fishing for salmon, steelhead and Dolly Varden. Guests enjoy trips to the Karluk River, which is world famous for its sockeye salmon and king salmon runs. Halibut, Rockfish, and Lingcod are great all year round! Also May through December King Salmon is possble, with summer months being the best.
