Fishing and Species
Their season is July 16- August 19, fishing for Pink, King, Chum and in the last weeks silver salmon. In addiiton there may be trout and char available. Fishing is all done by wading rivers and saltwater bays. The salmon are bright and strong as you are either fishing in saltwater or nearby in the lower river. Different waters are reached via car. The first two days are guided and an orientation. The last three days are unguided and you will need to rent a car for this fishing.

Since 1989, Kodiak Island River Camps has been providing guide service to the traveling fly angler. Your hosts, Dan and Randy Busch, are thirty-five year residents of Kodiak Island. They offer a variety of fly fishing opportunities for the visiting angler on Kodiak Island and are an exclusively fly fishing guide service. Kodiak Island River Camps is service-oriented and limits the number of guests to four, except for private groups. If you are booking as a group, trips can be personalized to accommodate schedules or to target a particular species of fish. During your stay they can assist you in developing your fly casting, fly tying and other related fly fishing skills. They welcome men and women fly anglers of all skill levels and ages.

From mid-July to mid-August they target pink salmon, chum salmon and Dolly Varden trout. The weeklong fishing package consists of two days of guided fishing, transportation on guided days, meals on the guided days and six night’s accommodations. Each week begins with two guided fishing days to help guests familiarize themselves with the area and fishing techniques. The remaining three days are open self-guided days for fishing, exploring and sightseeing on your own. Additional guided days can be arranged. Fishing is done by wading the saltwater bays and rivers along the Kodiak road system. This is for a maximum of four guests per week. All guests stay at their private in-town accommodations, consisting of a two-bedroom unit with full kitchen. Each bedroom contains two single beds with private bath. Excellent pink salmon fishing is available during this time, and they only target them in the salt water bays and estuaries where they are fresh, bright, aggressive and full of energy. Other species of salmon are also available, and they pursue Dolly Varden trout in the many rivers along the road system.
