Pasagshak State Recreation Area is a popular place for Kodiak residents and non-residents alike. Even people who don't like to fish or don't own fishing gear enjoy the relative solitude of this popular place, mainly because Pasagshak is the farthest point one can retreat from town still using the island's unpaved highway system. For the actual fisherman, Pasagshak is an easy mark and a commonly successful fishing spot where in the right season each cast invites an almost perfect chance to land a salmon. Kodiak Island is prime spawning ground for most varieties of Alaska's salmon, but limits are imposed on the fishermen. Two reds (sockeyes) daily, two silvers (cohos) daily, two chum salmon (daily), or up to five pink salmon daily, but no more than five salmon in any one day. If all the island's residents caught the daily limit of these game fish, the river and lake systems would lose over 60,000 fish per diem.
A visit to Pasagshak is recommended for anyone who likes the out of doors, and for those who don't fish, just watching the fishermen is an exciting activity, since Alaskan salmon are a little bigger than your childhood blue gills.
