Alaska Kingfisher Lodge is a trophy fishing lodge located on Prince of Wales island near Craig Alaska. This is a fishing report for the past 3 days fishing for 3 groups of anglers from different locations around the U.S..

Coho catch rate increased dramatically the past 3 days landing limits each day or close to it with a few Kings mixed in (3 total I believe). I can’t speak for other lodges or anglers but I believe most boats were at least getting good numbers of Coho if they were in the right spots. Halibut fishing was good but ocean conditions were not too nice and some of the fishermen got sick trying to get GAF halibut off the outer coast, but by day 2 they did land 2 of the 3 GAF fish. The last day winds increased up to 35 knots and outside ocean conditions were not what most folks wanted to brave so fishing remained on the inside calmer waters yesterday and what would normally be a 45 minute ride home ended up about 90 minutes due to the choppy seas. I would also like to mention the Bob Pahor family is the longest customer who has returned each and every year since 1996, and they can catch fish! We thank them for all their business over the many years of our family operation. They watched our children grow from little children to having children of their own and still involved in the family business.
