Are You Ready for another Season of Kodiak Alaska Fishing?
We hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends. However now, it is time to think about the great fishing this year on Kodiak Island. Making memories is what fishing is all about for us. We have many people planning their own Alaska adventures and keeping us busy.
Isn’t this beautiful? When you think of Alaska, there is the image of the frozen north and Kodiak has its share of snow and cold.
Old Harbor is more temperate than you might think. The average December and January temperature is about 30 degrees and the record low the past few years has been -1 degrees. The village gets about 15 inches of snow on average each year and almost 100 inches of total precipitation annually. June and July are the driest months and November has the most rain. The days are about seven hours long in December with sunrise around 9:30 am and sunset about 4:30 pm local time. Not bad when you think about the temps and snowfall in many parts of the lower 48!
The deer hunt for 2016 was one of the best they have ever experienced. The previous winter was relatively mild and the deer population has been increasing steadily since the severe winter of 2011-12. They had a couple of years when the hunts were canceled after that winter to help the deep population recover.
Even though it is January, everyone is excited about the opening of the king salmon season in mid-May. We also have a special offering to start this season of fishing in Old Harbor, Alaska. We are currently busy booking trips throughout the season as anglers are picking their favorite kinds of fish to catch and take home.
