Resurrection Bay is our destination for hard-fighting silver salmon and world-famous halibut fishing! Resurrection Bay is a fjord on the Kenai Peninsula and located about 2.5 hours south of Anchorage and 1 hour south of our Kenai Riverside Lodge. The picturesque seacoast town of Seward is situated on the north edge of Resurrection Bay and serves as our gateway to these productive waters.
Fishing for silver salmon in the coastal waters is one of the most popular trips we offer. When the weather and tidal conditions cooperate our guides usually head straight for the Bay. The fishing can be fast and furious, and with a liberal limit of six fish per day, you could easily fill your freezer in a single trip.
Fishing for giant halibut in Resurrection Bay is a saltwater fisherman’s dream. The Bay’s currents and bottom structure create a confluence of nutrient-rich water and unparalleled habitat for several species of bottom fish, including giant halibut. Halibut are permanent residents of these waters, meaning that these giant fish are in season all summer long.
Pair nonstop fishing action with a backdrop that offers frequent sightings of marine wildlife, calving glaciers and steep mountains, and it’s no wonder fishing in Resurrection Bay is a guest favorite!
