Wide Selection of Fish Species

Wide Selection of Species

Alaska is one of the top dream destinations for anglers around the world, and it’s no surprise why! Our waters are home to a wide variety of fish species that are good to eat and a blast to catch. No matter when you visit us you’ll have the opportunity to fish for multiple different species. Some fishing charters only allow you to target one species per trip–not Pybus Point Lodge. We give our guests the freedom to target any species you like–assuming that it’s available at that time of year. 

So Many Species!

Our guests that visit us in the summer are most excited to bring home some tasty halibut. Halibut are a flaky white fish with thick chunks of meat on their bones. And lucky for you, pacific halibut migrate through the Inside Passage (where Pybus is located) every year. Our region of Alaska has been one of the top halibut fishing destinations for both commercial and sport fisherman for generations.

But don’t forget about all of the other plentiful native fish species! Non-residents of Alaska are allowed to keep one unguided, slot halibut per day which typically doesn’t take too long to catch. On most days you can anticipate having plenty of time on a full day fishing trip to go for one or two more species.

Here’s all of the fish that can be caught throughout the summer! To learn more about the variety of fish species you can catch while visiting the lodge, check out our fish species page to learn more!

When To Plan Your Trip

No matter when you choose to stay with us you’ll always have the opportunity to catch halibut, rockfish, pacific cod, and ling cod. Halibut and rockfish are our bread and butter, most of our guests typically target both species on a full day fishing trip. After that, most folks choose to go for another local fish like ling cod or salmon.

All you need to consider while deciding which time of year is best for your vacation is salmon. Check out this chart we made to see when the salmon runs usually occur. Just keep in mind that nothing is guaranteed when it comes to nature; predicting salmon runs isn’t an exact science. Sometimes the salmon are late, sometimes they’re early, and sometimes there aren’t as many as we’d hoped for. No matter what the salmon run looks like, however, you’ll always be able to have the time of your life on one of our custom-built boats with your professional guide.

Incredible Experience!

Pybus Point Lodge has some of the most stunning scenery I’ve ever seen. I mean absolutely breathtaking! In addition to the amazing fishing, I hiked to a beautiful secluded lake, soaked in some hot pots, saw several waterfalls, went whale watching, saw bears and all kinds of wildlife and marine life. As a photographer, photographing a wedding under a waterfall will remain a highlight of my life.

Wonderful and Magical Place

We had an amazing business retreat to Pybus Point Lodge.  Everything was top notch... the fishing, the staff, the boat captains, the food, the accommodations, and especially the scenery. I really liked that Pybus took care of everything from start to finish. Chef John is an amazing cook. We had delicious hot meals the entire trip.  The cabins were amazing and very comfortable.  The fishing was awesome and that’s coming from a guy that doesn’t fish that much.

We brought home 100lbs of fish!

My wife and I spent a week at Pybus Point this Summer. We had a beautiful, private room overlooking the bay and our own new, ensuite, private bathroom. What an amazing place for couples to get away together. We set our own breakfast time, met our boat captain after, fished the day along, and returned to clean up and enjoy a nice dinner at the restaurant. Next time Alaska is on the trip list, Sherrie and I will go together, and it will be to Pybus Point!

Fun in Alaska

This was my first trip to Pybus Point. I stayed in one of their new cabins. The accommodations were incredible, the view onto the bay in the mornings was stunning. I loved the staff and the food was really very good. All of this and they have new boats to take you out onto fairly calm waters to fish. The fishing guides were great. Overall a great experience. Definitely going back.
