    Lake Bay is on the south side of Esther Island. It's the bay that has the hatchery in it.

    Lake bay is on the south side of Ester island and opposes Perry Island.

    Lake bay is actually a state marine park... There is a PWSAC hatchery facility that is one of the largest in the state, they raise pink, chum and coho... If u have the time stop by and arrange a tour, very worthwhile to see the facility and very soon they will be conduction chum egg take... While the bay is in general very deep there is one naviagation hazard past the hatchery right in the middle of the bay there is a submuged island that could potentially ruin your day...

    They raise some of the earliest chums in the entire state and fishing can be phenominal the last week of May and first week of June for Chrome ocean Chum.

    Coho fishing is also phenominal and fish are regularly underniegth the pesky schools of pinks.. While u can troll for them I prefer casting lures to them.

    There can be good bottomfishing w/in the bay and some of the largest ling cod I have caught in AK have come from here (just and FYI, the human sewer line for the hatchery dumps in the middle of the bay site of the hatchery).

    There are feeder kings here and I saw quite a few scooped up by the cost recovery seiners. They use to raise kings here but this program was vanguished many years ago.
