Kodiak Management Area
Fishing Information

Kodiak, the Alaska Peninsula and Aleutian islands offer excellent fishing for five species of Pacific salmon (king, sockeye, coho, chum, and pink) Dolly Varden, and steelhead and rainbow trout. Saltwater fishing for halibut, lingcod and various rockfish is also popular.

The cities of Kodiak and Dutch Harbor have daily flights from Anchorage as well as being ports of the Alaska Marine Highway System. Freshwater streams along both road systems offer easy access to great fishing. Numerous charter boat services provide an opportunity for saltwater fishing experiences. While Kodiak Road Zone is the most utilized, there are numerous lodges providing guided fishing for all those looking for a remote adventure.
