King Salmon Fishing in Alaska 

King (Chinook) salmon are one of the most prized catches out there due to their massive size, firm texture, and rich flavor. When it comes to King salmon fishing, Alaska offers an unbeatable experience! Peak Alaska king salmon fishing season runs from May through Mid-July, but they can be found here year-round. May through June is "Trophy King" season because during this time 30- to 90-pound kings feed in these Kodiak, Alaska waters and people come to catch the 50-pound plus chrome bright king salmon.

Silver Salmon Fishing in Alaska

Silver (Coho) salmon are fast, aggressive swimmers with a firm, mild, orange flesh that is great for canning or grilling, making them very popular with fishermen. Ten- to 22-pound Silver Salmon arrive in early July and are fished in much the same way we fish for Alaskan King Salmon. Alaska silver salmon fishing is at its peak from mid-August into September. Load up your fish boxes with five Silvers per day per person!  Add that to the rest of your catch and your home freezer will be FULL.

What Our Guests Are Saying

"Old Harbor is one of my favorite places in Alaska. The people are so warm, and the fishing is exceptional. KSL nailed it. They give 5 star service with some of the best, gourmet meals I've had anywhere. My room was right on the beach and was very clean and well kept. Our fishing guide was a lot of fun and made sure that everyone caught their fill of fish. KSL took care of everything. I just showed up in Kodiak and the rest was handled."

Ron U., Chapel Hill, NC

First rate equipment. Experienced guides. Custom built boats protect you from the weather. Most liberal fishing regulations in Alaska. Off the beaten path. Great scenery. Not Crowded."

Harvey P., Greater Cincinnati

"The sportsman's lodge is a great place! The guides know the water and work to put you on the fish. You won't starve for sure are the food rivals most fine dining establishments I've been too. I have been there twice on business and someday would love to take my family. One of my Clients also has mentioned he would love to bring his wife up for a visit.Stayed September 2014, traveled on business."

"For a great time fishing in Alaska, look no further than the Kodiak Sportsman Lodge. Gary and his professional crew put you on the fish! The food is great and the staff at the lodge make you feel like you're a part of the family. All this and the scenic beauty of Kodiak."

Susan Harvey, OR Medical Director at Medical University of South Carolina

"Gary and the crew at the Sportsmans Lodge in Old Harbor, AK are wonderful hosts. The fishing in Old Harbor can't be beat!"

Dave Jarrett, COO & Executive VP, Old Harbor Native Corporation

"Gary assisted us very professionally and gave us the best time and adventure throughout the trip."

Adrian Gaspar & Scandia Romana

"This will not be a usual sort of recommendation...instead it is the sort of recommendation of a service, that is, guided fishing and hunting at Old Harbor, Kodiak Island, Alaska. I recommend him and the Kodiak Sportsman Lodge highly. You wil catch some very fine fish (King and Silver Salmon in season, Ling Cod in season, and Halibut are the primary game fish, with a good assortment of other varieties of fish if you wish.) in the Sitkadalek sound and will be witness to some of the finest scenery available. The chef is superb at the lodge and the accomodations are much better than most you will see in Alaskan lodges in the mid-price range. I recommend Gary and the Lodge to you highly. Try him, you'll like it, I guarantee."
