arsen Bay Lodge, accessible by a short 30-minute flight from the town of Kodiak, has been in operation since 1968 and has entertained thousands of wonderful guests. In 2005 ESPN Outdoors shot an episode at Larsen Bay Lodge with special guest Kevin Sorbo, best known as star of Hercules. Outdoor Life Hunting Editor and author of over 1,500 articles and 23 books, Jim Zumbo, came for a Cast & Blast adventure with us in 2005 as well. At Larsen Bay Lodge the adventure still remains! You can still experience the raw beauty and bountiful wildlife of Alaska, but without the crowds. We offer saltwater AND freshwater fishing. We have our own fleet of boats, our own floatplane, and experienced guides to put you amidst all the hunting and fishing action!

World class fishing adventures at Larsen Bay Lodge includes King Salmon, (Chinook), Silver Salmon (Coho), Red Salmon, (Sockeye), Pink Salmon, Chum Salmon, Steelhead, Dolly Varden, as well as saltwater fishing in near-shore and protected waters for Halibut, Sea Bass, Lingcod, and more!

Hunting adventures abound at Larsen Bay Lodge with a long season and liberal limits on Sitka Blacktail Deer, wonderful duck hunting for such exotic species as Harlequin and Barrow’s Goldeneye, as well as predator hunting for fox, (red, silver and cross). We also offer a limited number of spring and fall hunts for Kodiak Bear in our exclusive area.

At Larsen Bay Lodge you can enjoy soft adventure, where you go out each day and hunt and fish as hard as you would like, but return to all the comforts of home. We have two lodges and two private cabins on the beachfront. Get a good night's sleep and wake to breathtaking sunrises on the bay. Often from the lodge you can observe whales spouting, foxes beachcombing at low tide, deer grazing nearby and bald eagles perched on rocks and trees waiting patiently for their next meal. Larsen Bay Lodge gives you Value, Variety and Comfort!

So if tight lines and acrobatic wild salmon is what you crave, then hang on! If hunting the plentiful and handsome Sitka Blacktail Deer makes your trigger finger twitch, then pack your bags! If photographing whales, seals, sea lions, bald eagles, puffins, and BIG bears makes your heart beat faster, then bring lots of film or extra flash cards! If all-you-can-eat fresh snow crabs makes your mouth water, then come hungry!

Larsen Bay Lodge has acquired the fishing rights for the Ayakulik River located in the Kodiak National Wildlfie Refuge! It is a short flight from the lodge in our floatplane.

According to the Alaska Fish & Game Dept., The Ayakulik River, located on the southwestern shore of Kodiak Island, is the largest river system on the island. It drains an area of 186 square miles, and includes 25 streams, 271 lakes, and an estimated 1,000 ponds, making this watershed one of the largest salmon producing watersheds on Kodiak Island. From the headwaters, the Ayakulik River flows 28 miles to the shore of Kodiak Island and terminates at the Pacific Ocean.

The Ayakulik River is a slow moving, clear stream characterized by a series of pools and riffles running over gravel and rocky beds. The first eleven and one-half miles of the river, from the mouth upstream to its confluence with Bare Creek, has a well defined channel with an average depth of 4-6 feet. The remainder of the river meanders through large flat marshlands which range in width from two to three miles wide. The river is slow moving with a gentle gradient, except for some short reaches that drop 25 feet per mile. Water levels are usually low mid-June to mid-August with peak flows occurring in mid-May to mid-June and mid-August to October. The Ayakulik River supports five species of salmon and provides excellent sport fishing opportunities as well as contributing to a strong commercial fishery. Along with sport fishing, the Ayakulik River offers recreational floating, and access to hunting, berry picking, wildlife viewing and photographic opportunities.

So make plans to come join us for our first year fishing this rich new fishery!
