After fishing Alaska for more than 25 years, I can guarantee you that there is no better saltwater fishing anywhere in the state than that found in the areas we fish from the Alaska Saltwater Lodging. Our skippers are all long-time Alaska residents who know the area intimately. We are eager to make your outing the fishing experience of a lifetime.
While all species of Pacific salmon return each summer, it is the aerial acrobatics of the silver salmon that have made Resurrection Bay a world famous fishing destination. In addition to fishing for silvers, we specialize in targeting Pacific halibut.
We are continually exploring and searching out new fishing grounds and in recent years have discovered several areas virtually untouched by sport fishermen. These "outer limits" trips offer an opportunity seldom experienced by visiting anglers.
Halibut fishing starts in April and gets better each month until the end of August. Last year we had excellent halibut fishing into September. King salmon and dolly varden arrive off the beach in front of the lodging in early May and can be caught by casting from shore on light gear. The best salmon fishing begins in late June and continues through August. All of our guided saltwater fishing takes place aboard one of our sport fishing vessels.
Though we do not provide flyfishing gear, saltwater flyfishing is gaining in popularity and some of our guests have had a lot of fun using their personal saltwater flyfishing gear on lingcod, bass, and salmon.
Our boats are state-of-the-art diesel-powered sport fishing vessels. Each vessel is U.S. Coast Guard or Coast Guard Auxiliary inspected and equipped with up-to-date radar, GPS navigation electronics, VHF communications and top quality video fishfinders. We provide top quality saltwater rods and reels and also the bait, tackle, and gear and clean your fish for you.
What to bring:The atmosphere is informal and casual clothes are suitable here and throughout Alaska. Summer temperatures vary between the mid 40's (F) and the mid 70's and rain is not uncommon. You will be most comfortable if you have clothes that are warm even when damp (wool sweater or polar fleece jacket) and decent rain gear.
