At Zachar Bay Lodge our guests enjoy the remote wilderness of Alaska’s Kodiak Island while relaxing in accommodations that are both welcoming and comfortable. Our lodge offers a variety of different options for daily excursions ranging from sport fishing trips on both fresh and saltwater, to other outdoor activities such as wildlife viewing, sea kayaking, and hiking. We would love nothing more than to show you a Bear, help you catch a Halibut, and share with you for a short while the pleasure that is life on the Kodiak Island.
We PRIDE ourselves on providing excellent service. Our daily fishing or wildlife viewing adventures are designed to be fun, educational, safety-oriented, and to leave-no-trace on the environment. Our guests return year after year to Zachar Bay Lodge. Why?
The answers range from the spectacular fresh and saltwater fishing adventures to the delicious food, comfortable accommodations, diversity of wildlife and, of course, the playful Kodiak Brown Bears! You can enjoy the VARIETY that Zachar Bay has to offer. Whether you enjoy fishing lakes, rivers or the ocean, we have a package that is right for you. The lodge is located in the heart of the Kodiak Island National Wildlife Refuge, 50 miles southwest of Kodiak City, only accessible by floatplane. Advance reservations are required.
Zachar Bay Lodge offers freshwater and saltwater fishing trips to excite anglers of all ages and abilities. Whether you’re a veteran deep-sea angler, a seasoned fly-fishing purist, or a total novice, the lodge has plenty to offer you.
Boat skippers have decades of experience between them. They know the best locations and the best techniques for catching monster halibut. At Zachar Bay you’ll have the special privilege of fishing in calm, shallow waters not far from the lodge. That means more fishing time and less seasickness. It also means you can fight those monster fish on much lighter tackle. In the same waters you can also troll for bright, acrobatic silver salmon, as well as trophy king salmon.
Zachar Bay Lodge also offers fly-out fishing trips to remote, secluded lakes and streams where huge schools of sockeye salmon and arctic char await. This is an unforgettable, real Alaskan experience for both fly-fishermen and spin-fishermen. You can also join a hike up a pristine river where you can catch silver, chum, and pink salmon until your arms ache (this actually happens a lot). You can even have fresh fish grilled over an open fire, prepared by your guide.
You won’t be disappointed with the fishing here. But fishing is only the start! There are many other activities to enjoy. In fact, the possibilities are endless.
