Fly Fishing in Kodiak
Kodiak Fishing Guide
Updated 08/20/16 – Well The “Silvers are In” This past week was fantastic some of the fish landed were pushing 15lbs +. I hope this is an indication of the start of a great Silver run (Aug-Oct). Saltery is still loaded with fish, Reds are still abundant, Silvers, Pinks, Dog’s and even a King was landed. A fantastic week… The limit for Red’s at Saltery Creek still remains 10 per day. The Red’s & Silvers are crushing our hand tied fly’s.
The river has changed its course during the winter months leaving numerous deep fishing holes for the salmon to take a breather in while they make their run to the lake. Alaska Fish & Game has raised the daily Sockeye limit to 10 at Saltery, which is up 7 from last year. Kodiak fly fishing is having a spectacular start to another great year of fishing. Best way to get to Saltery is by Off Road vehicles…LETS GO Fishing!!!
That’s where Reel Extreme Alaska fits in ..
Reel Extreme Alaska specializes in two types of guided services, a full day Off-Road excursion 20+ miles to one of Kodiak’s back-country fishing locations, or a guided road system trip to the many rivers accessible by paved roads. Either trip you choose, I will put you on the fish. The most popular trip leads to Saltery Cove, which is known around the world for its incredible salmon runs. Sockeye (Reds) start their run from mid June into August. Last year the Reds were everywhere, talk about giving your arm a workout. Pink Salmon (Humpies) started late July-August. When the Silvers started showing up in August it was time to battle. These fish felt like you hooked into a torpedo, it was amazing watching these monster Silvers rocket through the water to attack your fly.
There are also plenty of Dolly Varden, Steelhead and Rainbow Trout which can be frequently caught on any given day. The trip to Saltery Cove takes you through spectacular mountainous terrain, rivers, valleys and a few muddy spots. During your trip, you may see one of the largest brown bears known on the planet, the Kodiak Brown Bear, (Check out this Video out) so be sure to pack your camera. Other photo opportunities may also present themselves, the American Bald Eagle, mountain goats, bison, deer, fox, wild horses and of course tons of fish. I can provide all the fishing gear needed, or you can bring your favorite setup. I also provide lunch, drinks and plenty of ice for your fish. My goal is to provide you with one of the best Fly Fishing Kodiak experiences of your life. “Click for Rates and Booking Information”
