Fly Fishing

Karluk Lake, situated in the heart of Kodiak Island, is a haven for fishing enthusiasts seeking a memorable experience.

Casting your line into the crystal-clear waters of Karluk Lake not only offers the chance for a rewarding catch but also provides a serene connection with the untouched wilderness. Join Kodiak Anglers on select dates.
