Each river system located in Olga Bay holds its own unique salmon season with different species and return dates. Halibut, Rainbow Trout, Steel Head, Pacific Cod and more are also available. Fishing in Olga Bay is world class.
Kodiak Island has a healthy game population and with its natural wilderness habitat, hunting in Olga Bay is a great all-around experience. The beautiful Sitka Blacktail Deer and the lively ptarmigan that we have available to hunt in our area make for a fun adventure. Depending on the year and the depth of the snow, the deer can be hunted very close to the beach and lodge, but just as likely it can be a very physical hunt with lots of hiking.
Kodiak Island offers a wide variety of wildlife viewing due to its unique environment. The Island holds many valuable food sources which enable these animals to thrive.

The area is also home to beaver, otter, fox, deer, eagles, seal, ptarmigan and many other animals that may be able to be viewed during your trip.
