Four Flyways Outfitters - Cold Bay
The Cast-and-Blast is the first three weeks of September.
Cold Bay is roughly 630 miles southwest of Anchorage. The Alaska Peninsula is bordered by the Bering Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. Four Flyways are full-time guides for waterfowl hunting trips. Groups are limited to eight hunters per week.
Four Flyways Outfitters
They fish two small rivers and a couple of creeks. During the first three weeks of September, silver salmon fishing can be exceptional. Dolly Varden are abundant and are a lot of fun on light tackle. Chum and pink salmon are also present. On the pier, there is some saltwater fishing available for cod, flounder, halibut, and more. They use Achilles inflatable boats to access prime hunting locations on Izembek Lagoon and surrounding areas.
They occasionally hunt the Cold Bay side of the Peninsula and nearby upland areas. They use a large spread of custom-painted Brant decoys, Canada goose decoys, and duck decoys to lure all these species within close range. They use the best gear possible to make your hunt more successful and enjoyable. They have a wide variety of hunting and fishing available and will cater the hunting and fishing to each group’s goals. Black brant are the most abundant species of waterfowl in the Cold Bay area. Izembek Lagoon offers the best black Brant hunting anywhere. Taverner cackling geese are also very abundant. Pintails are by far the most abundant puddle duck species in the area. They also have good numbers of mallards, wigeon, and green-winged teal. Ptarmigan are plentiful on the tundra in the Cold Bay uplands.
Cold Bay Seasons:
Season: September 1 - December 15
• The first three weeks of September are best for the Cast & Blast.
• September 25 - October is great hunting, some steelhead, a few silvers, and dollies.
• November and December is time for trophy Brant, sea ducks, ptarmigan, plus other ducks.
Fishing Equipment: Guests are encouraged to bring their own fishing gear. They can also use the Lodge's fly, bait cast, spinning and related tackle.
A Typical Day:
Each trip is tailored to the group’s interests.
7:00 a.m., you’ll enjoy a hearty breakfast. Snacks are packed to-go to eat in the field.
Midday: Based on the time of year and the activities, lunch plans will vary. Guides will either pack food for when the weather and tides allow you to stay out hunting and fishing all day, or you will return to the Lodge in between activities for a warm, filling lunch.
Dark: On most days, you'll hunt until dark, although most of the hunting is more influenced by the tides than the time of day. If you’ve lost days due to bad weather, you may be able to fit in a half-day of hunting or fishing on the day of your departure, depending on your departure time.
