With professional guides, cooks, and hosts, a vacation at Port Lions Lodge is not your typical hunting or fishing vacation. Warm showers, hot meals, and comfy beds await you at the end of every day.
One the strongest attractions to Port Lions Lodge, which opened in 1989, is that unlike other lodges in the area, which typically carry 6 fishermen to a boat, Port Lions Lodge typically limits its boats to 4 fishermen each, except when the guest specifically requests more. There is no question that this increases the quality of the experience. In addition to boats, guests also fish from stream banks and gravel bars and at times even fish while wading in the salt water. Our Alaska fishing lodge offers options that no other lodge can. Our season starts in May with the influx of spawning herring followed by giant king salmon and halibut. We fish exclusively out of the boat in May. Shore excursions are added in June to fly fish for sockeye salmon. As the summer goes on we catch fewer of the giant kings but the numbers of the smaller ones goes up. July adds another opportunity as the silvers start to show up in the saltwater. A typical July day can result in a mixed bag of kings, silvers, and halibut from the ocean as well as some pink salmon and Dolly Varden Trout from the streams. In August we start catching the silvers in the streams and rivers. They run right through September. The late summer fishing is great in both the ocean and the streams. Our Fishing Lodge offers an abundance of fishing opportunities paralleled by none other.
The protected water between Kodiak, Afognak, and Raspberry Islands holds some of the richest biomass in the world. The plankton growth often makes the crystal clear water appear like a rich broth and it attracts everything from tiny fish to great humpback whales. Fish and sea mammals alike hold here in the tidal waters between these islands because of the unending supply of food. Salt-water fish migrate here to feed and grow. King salmon are here all year long and silver salmon feed in the salt water all summer as they travel to their spawning grounds. Add to this the large number of sparkling streams that each have their own unique salmon and steelhead spawning beds and you have one of the best sportfishing areas in the world. It’s also one of the best places around for an Alaska fishing lodge!
