Halibut fishing out of Chignik Bay offers truly unique and exceptional opportunities. We are fortunate to have access to extremely shallow water fisheries and most often we fish in less than 60 feet of water. We have consistently been able to catch very nice halibut on light tackle. These fish put up a fantastic fight in shallow water and provide epic, exciting battles. Some of these spots provide excellent opportunity for fly-fishing halibut in 17-25 feet of water and we have had good success, especially in June and August.
Halibut fishing is fun, safe, enjoyable and not extremely scientific. It is a great time for avid anglers as well as families.
The wildlife and beauty of Alaska stands out and is a constant entertainment for all who see it.
Chignik Bay Adventures Halibut fishing was featured in the June, 2010 Fish Alaska Magazine, titled Chignik’s Halibut on the Fly. We are fortunate to have good volumes of shallow fish and pursue catching them in both conventional and innovative techniques.
This fishery is available all summer, but best catching is in July during our King Salmon fishery.
