    if you are near the afognak river stop by the wier and say hi
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Default Good choice...

    I was also a frequent visitor to mainland Alaska and then discovered Kodiak.

    You are in for an exciting change.

    This community has all the ammenities that you found previously, but without the crowds.

    The fishery can be absolutely stellar if you plan it correctly...

    Early to mid june has a few opportunities for fresh water. The Kings will be returning to Manoshka Creek, the reds will be running in the Buskin, and you can catch dollies in the outlets of the rivers or anywhere on the Buskin.
    As for a b/b, look to the beaver creek lodge. Great place and Ron has lot of knowledge of the area and can be quite entertaining.
    Good luck.

    I went at the end of july into august 2 years ago and had a blast. We booked our saltwater trips through Kodiak Island Charters. Capt. Chris is the man and we caught as many fish as our arms could handle both days,,,salmon kings, silvers and pinks,,,,tons of halibut and rockfish galore. The thing I really liked about fishing with Chris is his boat is much bigger than most of the guides around kodiak and if the water gets choppy it's a lot easier to handle.

    We stayed at the kodiak island winery cottages and loved it. It's about 45 minutes outside of town which I loved, but it's a bit secluded. The good thing is you have many streams to yourself out there, the bad thing you're 45 mintues from town. Depends on what you're looking for.

    I see you're from sulivan co. I live in dutchess and fish sulivan all the time,,,the beaverkill, willowemoc, east and west branch and I have 3 boats on pepacton. I almost purchased a summer home in east branch a couple months ago, but the economy scared me off. I love the catskills.
